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

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...
