I'm trying to design an apparatus for steam cooking thick patties/cakes made of ground grain/bean/veg. I would like it to be energy efficient/insulated, and recycle the water so it doesn't need much water and will not boil dry. I want the cakes to rest on bamboo surfaces that hold several cakes and can be stacked. So maybe an apparatus that has some functional design elements of a still? Does anything like this already exist?

You're kidding right?!? You know that these exist because you just described in detail the same bamboo steamer used in Chinese cooking.

go with a bamboo steamer and a wok to boil the water. Go with a small electric wok that fits the steamer and is as powerful as possible.

we cook our vegis in it, carrots take about 5 minutes and corn slightly longer.. or less not too sure right now cause I'm tired.

Oh be kind. You do know we're dealing with a vegan, right? They tend to be less wily in the ways. Even though Chinese have been doing vegetarian and vegan foods cooked this way for centuries.

Baby steps, baby steps.
