Why does the jug boil faster than a pot of water on the stove?

Answer #1

Maybe because the steam helps heat up the water faster? I frankly have no idea what either of those are but from the picture in my mind thats what i’d assume haha :)

Answer #2

The amount of heat being transferred by conduction when using a jug is higher than that transferred when using a pot not to mention the heat lost through radiation between the stove and the pot.

Answer #3

I dont fully understand your question, but if I did interpret it right, it’s because the jug is made out of a different metal than your pot. It’d be a more conductive metal, which makes sense, because pots are generally made of more resistant metals so as not to burn your food.
