I don't profess to know much about toasters, but I've just been made aware that breville have a new one about to be released. Apparently it'll have 2 plug holes (just like my engel fridge)....one for 12v and the other for 240v. There is also a Butane canister option like those little cheap (but gr8) stoves that a lot of people use.
It's gunna take up to 6 bits of bread at a time, and to conserve power you can choose how many of the 6 pairs of elements you want to have ON at any time.
A lot of people worry about element style gadgets being used on 12 volts, but this one is VERY efficient and will use less power than your 1a/h flouro light.
When not in use it can be folded down to a much smaller size.
Now I know some of you might be a bit sceptical, but I read this in the March 2006 issue of 4WD Monthly, so it MUST be true!!! ;-))

Hi Roachie,

Wouldn't it be cheaper to buy a $20 Tiffany toaster from Cunno's and use two 1500watt inverters to run it from three 100Ah AGM's? Could use the same setup to run the frypan :-)))

Cheers
phil

I read in the April issue that there is a new 12 volt microwave snap freezer that works by putting an inverter in the line before the microwave thereby reversing the action of the microwaves and sending the atoms to sleep instead of exciting them .
Also in this issue is the article dealing with the revolutionary off peak gas heater . Technology just keeps making life easier and easier for us .

Not entirely true Roachie, in the latest issue of 4x4 Monthly (May 2006) they printed an apology saying it was all a big mistake, it uses a 12V Hella plug - not the 2 pin Engel as originally quoted.

Either way, does sound like a very handy bit of kit. An adaptor is easy enough to make.

BTW, will it do crumpets?

With the Nissan version Brew, you have to be very careful cos it will overheat.

"A lot of people worry about element style gadgets being used on 12 volts, but this one is VERY efficient and will use less power than your 1a/h flouro light. "

This would then equate to what... about 10 - 12 watts of heating power, which is 41 BTU. Now, my Coleman stove runs at 10000 BTU, and I still can watch my toast cook slowly.... can't quite work out the math I'm afraid.

Wolfie, I knew I could rely on you to throw in a curly one at this point. I'm afraid you've now opened up a can of worms, so before speculation starts, I guess I should explain.
This machine is not just an "ordinary" toaster. It contains special components developed by NASA for the space program. Indeed, it is the main driver they are going to use in the new space craft that will be launched soon and will take people to Mars in 3 hours.
I believe the technical term is "fuel cell" and from what I can gather it is something like how we currently use a 12v battery via an inverter to run a air conditioner.....well this has got an inbuilt inverter on a smaller scale. In fact they're already working on phase 2 of the project which will see this same toaster (except it will be limited to 2 slices at this stage), operated by using 2 NiMH "AA" batteries which will be good for up to 10 slices of toast (medium done).
Now, when is that LPG-powered generator sposed to on the market?
