Hello fellow rocketeers,

An article on cooking efficiency from Low Tech Magazine and their study on thermal efficiency of different methods of cooking. Rocket stoves are mentioned and rank very high in both thermal efficiency and decreased water boiling time compared to other methods of cooking.

My favorite quote:

Essentially, any electric cooking device is an insult to the science of thermodynamics.

Yeah, that quote was one of my favorites too. I have taken undergraduate and graduate thermodynamic classes and I see so many insane uses of energy it hurts.
