- "Double-boiler", or “Bain-Marie” is an expression influenced by the process of the same name used in cooking, where something is heated inside a container that is inside another one filled with boiling water. The invention of this method was popularly attributed to Mary the Jew (300 BC), a former alchemist, although the method has been used since Ancient Greek. As this is a slow heating process, the expression is used to describe something that is waiting for a result or conclusion.
