Time for steam to fill a certain volume

Hi,

I'm new to thermodynamics. I am trying to find how long it will take a cavity of 2' x 4' x 4' to reach 211 F with a steamer with an output of 35 g/m @ 211 C.

At some point I need to take into account the heat loss through the walls but for now I think I need to just find the time. Maybe I am missing a metric?

Thank you for the help.
Ian

More Info Needed

1) Is it "steam at 35 grams/minute @211C (or 211F?)
2) Is the 2x4x4 space initially full of air at say 25C?

So the air must be displaced.

My "Pressure Cooker" page needs editing. But of some value.

Good Luck
