What exactly do people mean by "can't cook" ?

Do they mean they can't cook without a recipe or they just can't cook?
If it's the later how does that work? Anyone can follow a recipe.

  • I think they usually mean that they can't cook at all. That they burn water (my aunt has done this, and she ruined the pot).

    • Water evaporates and doesn't burn, burning water is literally impossible.

    • Why would you say "that they burn water" then?

    • @lumos two reasons: a) it's a common colloquialism where I live and b) it's shorter than saying "they burn the pot while boiling water."
