When WATER is meant to be heated up till boiling: this will take one, maybe two, minutes.

It's a lot more complicated than you seem to think.The flame of a Bunsen burner is very hot, so "not very long" is a reasonable answer. It's very hard to quantify numerically without actually doing it, though, especially since I'm not sure whether you mean "start to boil" or "boil dry". The volume doesn't really matter much for the start of boiling.
