    From my 3 years of expert experience in college, i can tell you, cold blocks of ice boil faster than cold water or hot water. I prepare cup noodles in 40 seconds and is ready to eat in another 20 seconds.

    HAHAHAHAHAHA No! but under certain circumstances hot water does freeze faster than cold water but water at 140 degrees from a boiler will boil much faster than 60 degree water from a cold water faucet LOL

    Every time I see clips from season 1 I keep thinking about just how different a show hells kitchen was from the first season vs all the rest. Most of the contestants in season 1 would be cooking circles around the people in other seasons. But other seasons seem more human, and Gordon seems...MORE. The way I think about it is that season 1 is like Gordon teaches chefs how to cook professionally. And the other seasons are Gordon teaches amateurs how to be chefs.

    cold water increases temperature faster than hot water increases its temperature to a certain point till where it becomes 'hot water' and then it just boils at the same rate as got water...but hot water is obviously better to use.

    Hot water freezes faster than cold water, but indeed hot water boils faster than cold water. Amazing fact, it was a Tanzanian cook that found out that hot water freezes faster than cold water. By hot, understand warm. Not seething.


    the first season was boring and poor

    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.

    • D'onte Graves

      So water at a temperature of 200ºF will begin to boil slower than water at 40ºF? That sounds...fairly stupid.

    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.
