Get silicone hose. It's not that expensive and it's rated at boiling temperatures.
Braided vinyl hose, while structurally stable at boiling temperatures, may not be chemically stable at boiling temperatures. Google is your friend when it comes to actual FDA temperature ratings but it seems like vinyl is rated in the 160-180 range.
I know that when I used braided vinyl at boiling temperatures there was a smell coming from the hose.... But many here use it at boiling temps and haven't grown any additional appendages.
