In this paper we study the wavefront like phase transition of solutions of a parabolic nonlinear boundary value problem used to model phase transitions in the theory of boiling liquids. Using weak supersolutions we provide bounds for the propagation speed of such a phase transition. Also we construct stable supersolutions to initial configurations which have locally supercritical values.
