That's my solution too - divide it into two or more smaller batches. This has a more-than-linear speedup effect because you not only get twice as much heat applied, you also get better heat transfer into each batch. I'd guesstimate that dividing a batch in two makes it 3 to 4 times faster. This is true no matter what kind of pots or stove you have. Howard A.
