Breville toaster oven - flickering lights

I have to use the same circuit for the range lights and the toaster oven. This arrangement had worked for years without any flickering using an older panasonic toaster oven as well as a microwave. The circuit is 20 amps.

The new breville has some digitally-controlled circuitry and I suspect it may be having some effect on the downstream power. It's the first item in line.

Is there a way to isolate the current variations from the other down stream devices (lights on a digital dimmer)??

Welcome to the forums! Did you change bulbs to CFL or LED? What is the full load amperage of the toaster oven? Digital circuitry would be better than analog any day. I doubt it is the culprit, but we'll see. One way to isolate it is to unplug it to see if you get any light problems. Does it plug into a GFCI protected receptacle? You are pulling 15 amps with the 1800 watt quartz elements, FYI

Not without running a new circuit.
