How to Boil Water

Boiling means bringing water to 212 degrees Fahrenheit for cooking. But you don’t need a thermometer to boil water. The process to boil water (or any other kind of liquid) is simple, and you need to follow only a few steps.

Put some water in a pan or pot.

Don’t fill it to the top, or the water will splash out of the pan when it boils!

Place the pan on your stovetop and turn the burner to the highest setting.

Your stovetop probably has a “Hi” or “Max” setting.

Let the water come to a full rolling boil (when the bubbles are rapidly breaking the surface).

Covering the pot speeds the process by trapping surface heat.


Boiling water is a very healthy and a good method to make water clean from all the bacteria and germs. It is mostly boiled for the kids, or for making Tea. Its medical uses are: it Keeps you hydrated, recovers throat pain, Improves circulation, It can decrease stress levels.
How does liquid actually boil?
The process of Boiling water varies a lot on the Temperature to reach its boiling point. The boiling point of a liquid depends on temperature, atmospheric pressure, and the vapor pressure of the liquid. When a liquid reaches its boiling point, bubbles of gas form in it which rise to the surface and burst into the air. The process of Boiling occurs when the water reaches the temperature of 100 degrees celsius/212 degrees Fahrenheit, which is its Boiling point. If it reaches out of the limit of its boiling point, so it can burst. One of the major points of water boiling is Water vapor. Water vapor can be produced from the evaporation or boiling of liquid water or from the sublimation of ice. Water vapor is a transparent material, It is continuously generated by evaporation and removed by condensation. The differentiate between Boiled water and Distilled water has always been a hot topic.
Boiled water is simply water that has reached its boiling point, Whether Distilled water has had all of its impurities removed, including minerals and micro-organisms. There are some major
insecurities that have to be done before boiling any liquid, The container in which the liquid is being boiled should be made out of metal, no plastic, Kids should stay away from the subsequence, The person boiling the liquid should be alert because it can burst.
What condition must be in the case of a liquid to boil?
When a liquid is heated to a temperature at which particles throughout the liquid have enough energy to make vapor into the air, the liquid begins to boil. As you mentioned in the article, we should not fill-up the water to the top of the container, otherwise, it will have more chances to burst.
What are the precautions for letting the liquid to not burst?
A person should be standing in front of the boiling liquid to make sure the liquid is not going to burst.
If the liquid is about to burst, the person standing near it should turn off the stove as soon as possible.
Kids should definitely stay away from the stove.
The person standing to look after it must not be so close to the water because the boiling water releases energy which causes the boiling water to spill out. One method to boil the water fast is that, If we cover the container/pot in which the water is being boiled, the process will become faster by trapping more heat inside the container/pot. Boiled water has never been bad to drink, In the old time, when the RO plants didn’t exist, the people used boiled water mostly, because it was safer, and with no cost.
Boiling water is the most effective and commonly practiced household way to treat drinking water.


  • take a steel container in which we are going to boil the water.
  • set it on the stove with water in it for about 10 minutes
  • when the water reaches its boiling point which is 100 degrees celcius, add some salt (optional).
  • set the water out in a container.
  • Drink it!
