It's somewhat understandable in the context of filming something cooking on screen to use an obviously visible flame but what we see Neelix doing goes well beyond that.  In every cooking operation we see Neelix doing he is always doing so with the flames so high that fire licks up to sometimes half the height of the sides of the stock pot he is preparing sauce in.  Something that any good cook will tell you is, those kinds of heat levels are only useful in a vary narrow number of applications, wok based cooking is a good example.  This goes to explain why we see Neelix overcooking or even outright burning food on multiple occasions.  <ref>[[VOY]] "Flashback", [[VOY]] "Learning Curve"</ref>

Ignoring that it then brings up the massive waste of resources represented by his constant cooking at such high levels.  We are constantly being told that power reserves are precious to then see Neelix constantly overusing energy to cook the food that is suppose to be helping.  No matter how the technobabble is explained to us it doesn't change one detail that the energy is being used very inefficiently to do tasks where not even close to those levels is required.
