Default High Performance 12 Volt Appliances

Interesting link:
http://www.power-hunt.com/

12 Volt Coffee Maker
12 Volt Sandwich Maker
12 Volt Grill
12 Volt Griddle
12 Volt Heater
12 Volt Hair Dryer
Mobile 12 Volt Battery Pack

It uses high DC amperage - like up to 50amp hr.
You need a Power Hunt Power Port or Power Strip to use the appliances.

I know that this post has some age on it, but I was wondering if anyone had tried any of these products? We find that most 12v appliances are not worth the trouble and we stopped messing with them some time ago, but I wouldn't mind a 12v coffee maker that actually made coffee (well, let me qualify that - ~hot~ coffee)

The only 12 volt appliance I've found that has been up to snuff are televisions. Anything that consumes high watts is likely going to burn out a cig lighter connection, and is better off being fed by an inverter.

Yeah, that's been my experience as well - they just can't pull the load, even with all new, oversized wiring and specialized outlets. We don't use much electricity, except to run a space heater during the early and late seasons (3.5 season campers here!) - I use gas for most cooking, or a campfire - so I've not bothered with 12v systems in our current camper. I am skeptical, having some basic understanding of electrical design, batteries, etc. that anyone could rectify the shortfalls of 12v appliances, especially since they don't go into any detail about that they are doing, but I thought I would ask.
