What is Build cache in Docker?

When we build an Image, Docker will process each line in Dockerfile. It will execute the commands on each line in the order that is mentioned in the file.
But at each line, before running any command, Docker will check if there is already an existing image in its cache that can be reused rather than creating a new image.
This method of using cache in Docker is called Build cache in Docker.
We can also specify the option –no-cache=true to let Docker know that we do not want to use cache for Images. With this option, Docker will create all new images.
