How hot is your boiling water? Well, that depends. The main thing is elevation. How far above sea level are you when you are boiling that water. The purity of the water also can change the boiling point. At sea level, pure water boils at 100 degrees C or 212 degrees F. There are a lot of people who live on the plains and they spend a lot less time cooking than those who live in the mountains. Up at about 2000 meters or 6500 feet, water starts to boil at 93 C. Now, if you just climbed up on top of Mount Everest and you want a hot cup of coffee, good luck. Up there water boils at 70 C. The higher you are, the lower the boiling point, and the longer it takes to cook foods.
Dang, I don't know what made me think of boiling water. Guess I want a cup of coffee. OK, going to head on out to Wally World and get us some supplies. Now don't spill any boiling water on you but have a great day, you hear?.
