How long does it take your bed to get to 100 degrees Celsius?

I'm trying to gauge whether my bed is heating up fast enough. Starting from about 20 degrees Celsius it takes 9 minutes to heat up to 100 (my MK2 is stock with no containment around my printer, but there is also no draft).

Can anyone comment on how long it takes their printer to perform this task? I'm trying to gauge what is normal.

Thank you!

I just finish the assembly of my prusa i3 kit and haven't test it but in the box there's the result of the test before shipment. The label says : maximum 100°C reached in 320 seconds.

This is very much dependent on the surrounding environment, however I tested my MK2 in a room temperature 20 °C and it took around 9 minutes as well. If you want to speed things up, I suggest to use some enclosure.
