comparisonsidioms

Say for example we are comparing the hotness of weather of two countries or cities. They are both hot, but one beats another one to a great extent. Lets say we are comparing Dubai to Death Valley. How can we say in short that Death Valley beats Dubai in hotness greatly? Something maybe in the form of:

Death Valley ____ Dubai in hotness!


But not necessarily confined to the form above, if there is a better way to deliver the meaning.

EDIT:
In Persian for example we say something like:

Death Valley is so hot, it puts Dubai in its side pocket!
