From what we have determined, the Insta-pot will cook the quickest with the least energy.  We have watched demos of pots being used with batteries charged with a portable solar system.  If it is storming, a charged battery or gas stove may be your only choices.  I like the Smooch rocket stove and American solar ovens, but they can only be used under the best of conditions and take time.  We have an open air covered area, and I suppose you could use your rocket stove on a porch if it is portable.
Anyone have a better idea for cooking indoors?  We did buy a camp stove with the butane.
Heads up on canning flats.  While I was placing an on line order with Walmart, I Checked out canning lids (flats).  They were 12.95 a dozen. Not long ago (last year) you could get the jar, ring and flat for that price!  Be Leary of the lids on Amazon. I bought some last year and they just don't appear to be as good.  They were under Ball lids, but I don't think they really are.  They sold in bulk, like 32.
