By economical cooking, I am thinking about utensils, cookwares, stoves, ovens, electricity and gas consumption, etc... - the cheapest good quality stuff.

I am also talking about cooking methods that will consume least amount of energy and time.

Are questions of this sort allowed here?

  • That is, you can ask about whatever style of cooking you like - the restrictions are on the kind of question, not the kind of cooking (as Aaronut mentions). If there's something that made this unclear, let us know!

Sure, that's what the tag is for.

Please do note, however, that all of the usual expectations around specificity and constructiveness still apply. So questions of the form recommend me some cheap meal ideas/restaurants will be closed, not because they are off-topic but because they are polls.

I point out the above because the budget-cooking tag historically attracted these types of questions and we had to delete a lot of them (keeping one or two, such as the one above, for historical reference). As long as the questions are reasonably specific, they're welcome here.
