    Making Charcoal - works with the cooking skill so it does the entire stack of wood real quick. SO to make 3000, guessing 2 minutes.

    Making Potash - works with Alchemy so it does it 1 by 1 by 1 by 1. Using make max function this works out to about 1.5 to 2 seconds per (don't quote me on that time just a guestimate)...SO to make 3000, guessing at least an hour if not more

    Would be nice if more of the alchemy stuff worked the same way as the cooking stuff.

    I picked potash for this example because like charcoal it is an ingredient in another product and not really a stand alone sellable product. I would like to see pretty close to all products for alchemy work like the cooking products but I'd imagine it would have to be reviewed on a case by case scenario.

    I agree. Even if its just using a whole stack... let it work for a minute who cares. The 1 x 1 method should go away on most things that are produced in bulk
