Literally Boil water with Arduino

I am kind of a noob to Arduino projects but have bedazzled with Arduino projects and am well aware of what it is capable of. Right now I am in the middle of a side project. One component to my projects is to literally boil water with some part of the Arduino. My only problem is how am I suppose to heat it up or what part am I suppose to buy to heat this up. A waterproof component would be preferable. Thanks!!

Arduino can control AC power to a hot water pot.

If you connect the power supply backwards or to a port pin, you might be able to boil a drop of water on some part of an Arduino.

monitor temp with sensor and control heating element with relay, easy as pie

But only once. :slight_smile:

original spec did not define if this was a single or multiple batch process.

you can take apart an old coffee pot

then connect a relay to the heater element and use that to boil water.

you can get these in 120 Volt or 240volt
these too can be controlled with a relay
