Why not take a 120 volt toaster and rewire it with thicker (lower resistance) wires to operate at 12 volts? Or better yet, take the heating wire that is in there (or similar wire) and make 10 parallel wires out of it?

Of course, you may have to connect it close to the battery with large wires.

[Note: not saying this will work, haven't tried it, not advising it, only asking "why not". ]
