How long does 700ml of acetone take to boil completely away at 56 C?

I have 700ml of acetone in a 1000ml flask in a heating mantle, as part of a fractional distillation set up. I am wondering what the rate of boiling is so I can set a timer and stop burning the impurities in my acetone by leaving it on the heat for too long. I know I can just time it myself but I am curious about the math too.
