What's the deal with salt?
It makes your water hotter so your pasta cooks better, but it also makes your water colder so you can make ice cream.
How the fuck does that work?!

It only does one of those things. The pasta boiling is a myth.

Lowers the boiling point and thereby the freezing point.

>> No.16260962

So it lets water get hotter without boiling, and it also makes water go colder without freezing?
It's really hard to understand

>> No.16261008

it would be easier if you could read.

>> No.16261014

He can't read and you have no idea what you're talking about. You should both shit the fuck up.

>> No.16261016

Don't you need a fuckton of salt to get water to boil faster?

>> No.16261020

It doesn't do that first thing. You pulled that straight out of your ass.

It is a general characteristic that the addition of solutes to solvents will lower fp and raise bp. https://www.chem.purdue.edu/gchelp/solutions/eboil.html

You're wrong about the boiling point. Adding salt ions to a solution actually increases the boiling point. However, in the amounts you'd normally add to pasta water, it's marginal

>> No.16261714

salt is fucking awesome
anyone cutting back on salt cause of muh HBP is a fat faggot

>> No.16262811

Adding salt to water doesn't make it boil faster, you just add it because it makes the pasta tastier

>> No.16262848

It doesn't MAKE it colder, it ALLOWS it to be colder before freezing.
