    No, it is not. Influential requires a minimal distribution which MC — for all that it is — will never achieve because of the pricing. It MAY be that some components/ideas/recipes will be deemed later to be influential but that will come about (if it does) from distribution by other means.

    Yes it will be influential, because it gives the right people knowledge about how certain aspects of cooking equipment and other utensils to prepare food for meals are suboptimal, and gives the right ideas room for improvement in the design and efficiency of ordinary cooking and preparation equipment. There will be revolutionary new ways to prepare food as a result.
