for USA, Canada and countries running a 60 Hz supply service.

Actually, based on actual application experience, because of load diversity you can use both these appliances on the same circuit. It should be a 20 amp circuit because all kitchen branch circuits are required to be 20 amp. In other words the chance of them both running at the same time are slim and even if they do both appliances together pull about 16 amps.

Generally, no. We usually try to avoid having a lot of things plugged into one outlet, which is the usual meaning of "octopus connection" when we talk about things electrical. If we get a lot of stuff plugged into one outlet or a single outlet strip, we could approach (or exceed) the current rating on the outlet and end up tripping a circuit breaker. Less things plugged in is better.
