#339 - Turning heat down when water is boiling

As water cannot get any hotter than 100°C as it evaporates after that, it doesn’t make sense to put more heat in when cooking. That’s why I turn down the heat as much as possible when the water is boiling, only to have enough heat to keep it boiling. This saves energy.

  1. I have to work on this one. I've had this discussion with housemate who thinks they are "making sure" when the water is just evaporating as opposed to getting hotter.
