  Water-repellent surfaces can boil water
 
  According to researchers, surfaces that repel water can support efficient boiling if all air and vapor is removed from a system first.

Pre-wetting the texture of a superhydrophobic surface results in the “pinning” of small bubbles during boiling, meaning that they don’t spread out over the surface as they expand. They instead depart without coalescing into a vapor blanket and help keep the surface wet with liquid water. Hydrophobic materials are also able to form many more small bubbles than hydrophilic surfaces, allowing the surface to be cooled more efficiently.
