Don't know of a 12V version. We carry a Breville. Only use it in on a powered site of via generator. Usually during the day because you don't want the noise of the dough being chucked around while you are trying to sleep.

It's a luxury, but then so is a fresh slice of "non-frozen" bread when you are out in the back blocks!

Life's too short to drink bad wine.

Hi Stephen and Deborah,
Yep we take breadmaker on all trips. Ifout in back blocks, we use the gennie to fire up the bm to make the dough and then bake in oven. If in town needless to say the whole shabang is left for the trusty machine to handle. Nothing nicer than fresh bread!!

Hello Pilgrims,
Out pushing the Frontier in luxury!!!

Da Lone Ranger sez:
Fine to all of this, just don't try and use it with an inverter... Toooooo much power, anything with a heat element is a NO-NO! OK? Genset Ok, just not inverter....
And nothing wrong with the "ole camp oven load the coals on the lid" routine as well.... But it is a bit of an artform..

Cheers, and Happy Trails...

Never had a decent bit of bread out of one of those things but good for collecting dust at home.(lol) I like mine white (If I can sneek it past SWMBO) and hot fresh from the bakery. Out in the back blocks as per Steve - or a good damper in the 'Potjie Pot'

Regards GB

PS Bushtrackers are rolling in the Kimberley

We LOVE the bread from our breadmaker - Sunbeam!

We have used it on the genny and also on the inverter and the batteries on the "bake" setting never went below 12.4. If I am going to use it on the batteries I make sure that they are at 100% before starting the process.

The wattage setting is substantially less than the 1800W inverter.

Our favorite bread which provides a crisp crust is a sourdough mix.
