Does a watched pot ever boil?

2 Answers

A watched pot will boil, if given enough heat. An old wives tale says that a watched pot will not boil over, which should be interpreted that the person watching the pot will be able to stop the pot from boiling over by reducing the heat.

Yes, of course. It may however seem to take longer if you are focused on it rather than doing other things while you wait.
