I am pretty sure impurities in water causes an effect called boiling point elevation. Distilled water will boil at exactly 100 deg C (at sea level). With impurities the boiling poit is elevated.

That is a special case, when it is superheated.

It does boil under normal circumstances.

I tried it. Maybe I didn't do it the "right" way, but it boiled. I filled a clean Pyrex measuring cup with distilled water and microwaved it and it boiled just fine. I think realistically even if the water itself is completely pure, it will still boil under normal conditions because of contamination anyways. FOr example, there might have been some mineral residue in the cup from when I washed it, or a spec of dust may have fallen in it.

That system is optimized for performance and is very wasteful.

I doubt it utilizes the full vaporization of the water.
