Even if you had a large enough inverter, at 1800 watts for the Breville (or just about any toaster oven) would draw 150 amps from your batteries assuming the inverter was 100% efficient. Since the safe available amperage from a pair of fully charged 6V batteries is around 116 amps (1/2 of capacity) you are going to be limited in what you can cook.

While the oven does not draw the full 1800 watts all the time, depending on the surrounding temperature (I like to use mine outdoors to avoid heating up the trailer & cool weather keeps cycling on longer than in a warm room), even a 20 minute pizza may leave you with low batteries; cooking a roast or chicken is probably not viable unless you have a generator (large enough) or hookups.
