How to measure performance.

If a large solar cooker and a small solar cooker both raise the temperature of a liter of water the same amount over the same time period - are they equal in performance? 68.6.8.94 14:56, April 28, 2014 (UTC)

I would guess that yes this is the case. Tom Sponheim (talk) 22:13, April 28, 2014 (UTC)
