No. Ziploc® brand Bags are not designed to withstand the extreme heat of boiling.

And to think we used to heat tin cans of beef and beans right in the fire, never knowing that BPA existed.
I think Mr. Ziplock is afraid you'll have the bag touching the bottom of your pot, which would exceed the 212 of boiling water. They also recommend you don't boil things in the "zip-n-steam" bags, which are expressly designed to withstand boiling temperatures...
