Introducing rocket science in your kitchen

Dear GAIL Voice subscribers,

You must be wondering, why are we bringing in rocket science into your kitchen, and the answer to your question is, to help you save lots of gas (read money) and time (read peace) while you are cooking in your kitchen.

This happened, when a renowned rocket scientist, Thomas Povey, from Oxford University, was trying to boil water on mountains. The wait for the water to boil was so long and boring, that he thought of utilizing this time to think of an innovative idea, he introduced rocket like fins to the sauce pan, to rectify the aerodynamic and heat transfer problem that the traditional sauce pans have.

The result was astonishing, saving more than 40% of energy, as compared to the traditional pans, while at the same time, it boiled water fairly quickly.
