Can food be prepared by boiling?


Yes, food can be prepared by boiling. Boiling involves cooking in water. Water receives heat by conduction through the sides of the utensils in which the food is cooked and pass on the heat by convection currents which equalize the temperature and become very vigorous when boiling commences. Water is a poor conductor of heat and its heat capacity is high, it requires more heat than any other liquid of the same weight to raise the temperature. The boiling point of water is 100C.
