  1. All your new things look very useful. I love my toaster oven for many tasks. Have a great year in 2020.

    best… mae at maefood.blogspot.com

  2. Nice! I haven’t seen an Instant Pot/Toaster Oven combo before. Our son got a Air Fryer/Toaster Oven combo for Christmas. I hope you find lots of ways to use your new tools.

  3. Haven’t seen that combo before with an instant pot and toaster oven, it looks cool. Love the mugs and the Lodge gear too. Happy new year, my friend!

    • I guess I should have explained it better, it’s not an actual Instant Pot, that’s just the brand name. It’s an air fryer/toaster oven that bakes, rotisseries, dehydrates, etc.

      I’ve updated the info.

  4. Cool new items for your kitchen. Love!! I’m off to check out that Instant Pot Omni!

  5. Your toaster oven+ is very cool–I love that it does so much. I love the color of that ceramic tumbler too. 😉 Happy New Year!

  6. Oh gosh, I bought a cheap toaster oven years ago and have never used it. Sigh. Your’s looks way more impressive and interesting though!

    • I bought a toaster oven years ago too. I didn’t use my big oven again unless I was making something that wouldn’t fit in the toaster oven. This one is bigger and has a lot of different cook settings.

  7. Nice! The toaster oven looks intense 🙂 bet it’ll come in handy!

    • I don’t know why they named it “toaster oven”, it’s so much more than that. I mainly wanted it for the air fryer and rotisserie functions.

  8. I need that Lodge care kit and may I say that the toaster oven is a thing of beauty!!!!

  9. In case you missed my answer to your question about the beef stew: I’d use a flavorful beef broth and maybe add a splash (not too much) red wine vinegar. I think it’d taste just as good.

  10. Good luck with learning to drive it! Happy New Year

  11. Gotta love a new gadget! Enjoy using them!

  12. My daughter swears by her air fryer!

    • I know a lot of people who do. I wanted one because I haven’t cooked in oil in years and think this will be a quicker way of doing it. I’m also excited about using the rotisserie.

  13. WOW – that Instapot Combo is quite the kitchen addition (never saw one of these before). Enjoy

  14. I just got rid of my toaster oven. My kids used it a lot but not so much anymore. Yours looks really fancy though and obviously does a lot more than toast.

    Love the mugs and that last one from Publix is so me. We don’t have Publix out here.

    • I love those ceramic mugs, they keep drinks cold for a very long time. I have a regular toaster oven too but won’t be using it much anymore, if at all.

  15. what an interesting toaster oven. looks like it does everything except wash the dishes:) your mugs are very cute. i especially like the snowmen. Thanks so much for joining in IMK this month, Vicki. lovely to have you! cheers sherry

  16. I think Instant Pot is taking over the world! I look forward to reading how well it does at all those different cooking methods. I especially like the air fry one. I’ve been considering buying an air fryer but don’t want to use up any kitchen or storage space.
