Is simmer low or medium heat?

Asked by Lucy Ingram

A simmer is a method of cooking that uses a moderate heat to gently soften foods while slowly combining seasonings and ingredients. It’s often used for soups, stews and slow cooking meat. The definition of simmer is to cook a liquid just below the boiling point (212°F), with a range around 185°F to 205°F.
