I didn't realize that either, cause it doesn't make sense.
As long as your appliance is under 20a, you can run it as long as you want and it won't trip.
You can run your toaster for an hour, or your coffee maker for an hour.
Why would running your coffee maker after your toaster oven be worse than running either.
