    I was always taught that cold water boiled faster and that NEVER made sense to me and I don’t understand how me dad still believes it I was probably 7 and he says this and I look at him weird and he acts like IM the bonkers one. Christ.

    Cold water boils faster because hot water is used to the heat, so it takes a long time to get it to boil. Cold water is shocked by the heat so it's quicker, about 50 percent.

    That has nothing to do with cooking. A child or a moron would know hot water gets hotter faster than cold. A chef who literally cannot boil water. Wow.

    She's not completely wrong, the rate of increase in temperature is higher in cold water due to temperature difference but that doesn't mean it will take less time.

    I've actually heard that before touted as fact by pros. Cold water will heat up faster but slow to the same speed as hot eventually, at which point it takes just as long to boil. Since the hot water skipped that step, it reaches boiling first.

  • Peter Gieg

    My grandpa also subscribed to the urban myth of cold water boiling faster from hot water. This myth likely started when someone misheard or misinterpreted an explanation of latent heat; technically, because cold water absorbs heat faster than warm water, it *does* heat at an accelerated rate. *However,* although it is technically heating faster, it will still not reach the boiling point as quickly, because it has to warm up significantly more until it can reach boiling itself. It's very much like The Tortoise and the Hare.

    I've always been told to always use cold water when cooking as hot water can leach chemicals like lead from the pipes when cooking. I've seen responses like "where do you live that lead is an issue?". Honestly it's everywhere in the US. If piping is old, there will be lead from the old solder joints leached in. There have been multiple studies that the lead levels are higher than safe in more than just Flint. (source ex: www.scientificamerican.com/article/thousands-of-u-s-areas-afflicted-with-lead-poisoning-beyond-flints/ )

    my science teacher in the 6th grade tried telling us that cold water boiled faster than hot water, because hot water had to cool down to a normal temperature in the pot, before heating up to a boil. no shit. guess what, he was full of shit. he also told us that sound didnt travel as far in cold weather as it did in hot weather because the air molecules are cold. lol. that was incorrect as well, sound travels farther and faster in the cold because the molecules are closer together.

    you make ice cubes faster with cold water!! The cold water is going in one direction too freeze, but when heating cold water is going in the other direction, it actually takes longer to to get hotter. If your water is too hot, you add cold water to make the hot water cooler.
