    I think this is Internet Click baits fault since there was many times article on this topic with titles like cold water heats up faster, while that's true, cold water can absorb heat faster then hot water due to difference in temperature but that however does not and cannot speed up boiling time, since after cold water gets warm, then in takes the same time to boil as the same temp water you could have get out of tap... For example heating water from 10-30 degrees Celsius will take around lets say 5 minutes while heating water from 30-50 degrees will take lets say 10 minutes...

    Its true its due to dissolved minerals once you send piping hot water through mineralized faucets, unless you live under pristine aquifers, such as in memphis or in georgia below the piedmont. Boiling point elevation. That is science.

    hot water DOES freeze faster than cold water so maybe she got that confused with cold water also boiling faster than hot water

    KI11ORDERCLASHOFCLANS 2 months ago

    Just because I havent seen anyone else say it in the comments.. cold water does not boil faster than hot water, but hot water generally will freeze faster than cool water so that's probably why the dude got confused

    *Cold water* will be *absorbing heat faster while it is still cold;* *once it gets up to the temperature of hot water,* the *heating rate slows down* and from there it *takes just as long to bring it to a boil as the water that was hot to begin with.* Because it takes cold water some time to reach the temperature of hot water, *cold water clearly takes longer to boil than hot water does.*

    I actually think that one flummoxed even Gordon Ramsay. There's just no way years of experience could prepare you for that.

    The mpemba effect is where hot water freezes faster than cold water, it's a phenomenon that scientists are struggling to explain but there is evidence to back up.
    The same can be said for the reverse - cold water boils quicker than hot water, it shows that the 'chef' is actually a lot smarter than all of you :) xx

      @DarkraiKing okay well I guess I'm just trying to say to everyone else ridiculing poor nino, she isn't just an absolute idiot she has some reason behind what she said, even if it's wrong

    • DarkraiKing
      DarkraiKing 2 months ago

      Awkward Ness looked it up, every source says no. And it makes sense. The hot water water is already at higher temp, and thus takes less time to get to a higher temp, cold water needs the energy it takes to get to the hot water, and then more to boil. It’s basic temperature differential. I learnt that stuff in high school

    I heard this joke at work about his reaction to the idea of boiling cold water was faster, and my first thought was that hot water is often run through a water softener which adds sodium/salt. Thus raising the boiling point.
    However as it turns out, the amount of salt added by a water softener has no significant impact on raising the boiling point, as you would need 50 times the amount just to raise it about 1/2 a degree.

    To be honest, topping it off with warm tap water could be bad from a health standpoint. Warm water is more likely to leech heavy metals from the pipes and shouldn't be used for food.

    Cold water will technically heat faster than warm water, however sense it starts off colder it will get to the boiling point slower.

      Even that's only true in extreme situations we don't ever really face in everyday life. You'll make ice cubes in your freezer faster with cold.

  • Star Frost
    Star Frost 4 months ago

    I know she is wrong but here is a point that might make you think twice about it being the worst idea. If she had used hot TAP water here in the US, which I assume is where this was filmed, in any other situation you would be using water from your hot water heater. I understand if Chef has little or no experience with these archaic monsters but everyone without long term fluoride poisoning in this country knows to never use hot tap water. Now if he was referring to 'on demand' hot water systems, which I would hope he is then thats a horse of a different color.
    TL;DR In the US, the hot water tap is for dish washing ONLY unless you have an on-demand hot water system.

    Scientifically, cold water drops temperature faster than hot water. But that doesnt mean that cold water boils faster that hot water.

    HAHAHAHAHAHA No! but under certain circumstances hot water does freeze faster than cold water but water at 140 degrees from a boiler will boil much faster than 60 degree water from a cold water faucet LOL

    Every time I see clips from season 1 I keep thinking about just how different a show hells kitchen was from the first season vs all the rest. Most of the contestants in season 1 would be cooking circles around the people in other seasons. But other seasons seem more human, and Gordon seems...MORE. The way I think about it is that season 1 is like Gordon teaches chefs how to cook professionally. And the other seasons are Gordon teaches amateurs how to be chefs.

    cold water increases temperature faster than hot water increases its temperature to a certain point till where it becomes 'hot water' and then it just boils at the same rate as got water...but hot water is obviously better to use.

    Hot water freezes faster than cold water, but indeed hot water boils faster than cold water. Amazing fact, it was a Tanzanian cook that found out that hot water freezes faster than cold water. By hot, understand warm. Not seething.
