Thinking about getting a new microwave oven and toaster. Been using the ones I have for some time now and I've noticed some degradation in evenness and over all decline in quality. Since its been awile, what "gotchas" should I consider? I know we are in the brave new world of "internet of things" and I imagine I can get options that will allow me to automatically upload pics of toast or microwaved dinner to IG. I don't need any of those schmaltzy options. Just needs to do the job reliable, quality result and have a long life of use. Thoughts? Suggestions?

Is the microwave the above the stove kind or the counter top kind?

Do you want a 2 slice or 4 slice toaster? Does it matter what color?

Counter top for microwave, and I don't want a family sized one, that would be too big. 4 slice for toaste, and would be nice if it could handle bagels, but most importantly, has to do sliced bread to meet expectations. Sometimes when a toaster can do various thickness, it does them all, but not well, if you know what I'm saying. Color just in muted tones is fine. White would probably work, but not too hung up on the color, as long as it isn't garish and obviously clashes with the feng shui.

I'm pretty sure that's what the dial is for. :p

From what I can tell on Consumer Reports (my mother is a member), a 4 slice Cuisinart is fine for the toaster.

For microwaves, Panasonic seems to have several highly rated mid size counter tops. They range from low 200s to mid 300s.

Have the 4 slice Cuisinart toaster. All good, 5 years plus, zero problems.

...well there was that time I used it for an impromptu heat ray but that was hardly a problem....
