Yep, they work.
But aside from being slow, they are also very inefficient. They are designed for an idling semi, not for a small battery bank. I'm sure that there
are more efficient models available, but I would bet they are significantly more expensive.
Since the title is alternative cooking, you can also do some cooking in a Thermos. You Heat it to boiling on a stove or fire and dump it into a
Thermos and close it tight. I've cooked oats over night, I know you can do some other foods, I've even heard of people making a beef stew of sorts
like this, just put it all in a pan, bring to a boil and seal it in the Thermos.
Google Thermos cooking and there are a lot of links.
