4.2 Joules sadly ( 4.1813 to be exact ). Yes cgs used calories and it was one,
but SI physics sees no point in using water as a reference for specific heat.

I didn't say he wasn't right, I said he was a snob.

However, "out with the ark" suggests what we geeks call a "heat seeker"
mentality, a tendency to glom onto the new just because it's new, without
necessarily considering the merits of whatever it might be replacing.
Someone else said it: Just because it's old doesn't mean it's good, and just
because it's new doesn't mean it's better.

I wonder, do SI countries talk about gas cooktops in terms of watts?
