Condenser (heat transfer)

A condenser is something that helps transfer heat energy. It works by taking energy that is released from one place and moving it to another place. For example, when you use your stove to heat food, some of the heat energy is transferred into the air around the food. A condenser can take that heat energy from the air and transfer it into water or steam. This means that less heat energy is released into the environment and more heat can be used for cooking.
