If I add salt to water, does it make it boil faster?


Answer by  cindy (1484)

Adding salt to water does not significantly affect the amount of time required to make a pot of water boil. It is added to water when making pasta in order to flavor the pasta.

No, adding salt to water makes it boil at a higher temperature, so it actually takes longer to boil than plain water does. On the other hand, because the boiling temperature is slightly higher than plain water, it actually takes a little less time to cook the food.

No because adding salt to water makes the water harder and also the boiling point of the water increases significantly.

No, this is just a myth. Salt does not make water boil faster, but it decreases the boiling point for water so it is very helpful if you want to use salt.
