Especially if it was an air fryer. I don't want to 'fry' anything here. Again limited space and no venting for outside. Don't intend to make huge meals or such, I generally eat with the family upstairs, but when I want to.... it would be nice to be able to have more than toasted cheese.

I'm even reluctant to grill on griddler/grill. Do panni s but that's about the limit... so far! LOL
The Foodi Ninja appliance we bought would replace a toaster - it has settings for different darkness and number of slices and it counts down! - and a toaster oven, and add the air fryer function, but it doesn't work like a microwave. If you just use the microwave to heat up liquids and leftovers, you could get a small one.
Anyplace where people argue about food is a good place.

Ive made breaded zucchini in the AF, it came out surprisingly good. This was years ago, when the air fryers had limited space. So, even though it was good and did a quick job, it would take several times just to make enough to do something with, so I stopped using it,. From what I see, the AF's have increased space significantly. Maybe, at some point , ill get an updated version

No, I think it's a taxi cab. Is it yellow?

Is the halogen light the heat source for your sister's device? Does it have a fan? Does the door seal fairly tightly?

It's a glass container with a lid with a halogen light. and a small fan. Halogen light and fan are attached to the lid which is separate. In other words maybe you can use that lid on anything that fits it, to make it a fryer.
I too have a blog, a very simple one. https://2weeksinsrilanka.com/
