There are many types of metals which can be used to produce cooking ware. Each metal has its own character which make one better than the other in different aspects. Some of the most popular types of cookware are stainless steel cookware, copper cookware and ceramic cookware. One type of cookware which is less mainstream is the titanium cookware, probably because it is very expensive.
Titanium cookware sets are of very high quality as titanium metal is considered to be one of the sturdiest metals. What’s more is that it does not weigh a lot, especially compared to other sturdy metals, like the cast iron. Although titanium cooking pans are just recently introduced, it is gaining market as there are many professionals and home cooks who are gearing towards titanium made cookware. Let’s discuss further why this is happening.
When selecting a cookware, first to come to mind would probably be regular stainless steel cookware sets because it is popular for its durability and easiness of use. No special handling and cleaning required, that is if food does not stick on to the cookware. Another that would come to mind would be non stick cookware because of the convenience of not having food stick on to the cookware while cooking. It would be easier to clean and food could be cooked healthier as no or minimal cooking oil would be needed to cook your meal. However, special utensils and cleaning are required for non stick cookware as the non stick coating should not be scratched off. Now, let’s consider the titanium cookware set. It combines the strong points of stainless steel and non stick cookware and takes away their weaknesses. Titanium cookware is certainly durable, light weight so it is easy to use, non stick and can withstand abrasive cleaning materials and utensils! Is there anything else you can ask for?
But there’s more! Have you heard of waterless cookware? Titanium cooking pots are waterless cookware. Because of its superb heating capacity, you can cook food naturally without adding water or cooking oil as it will use the juice of the ingredients. You would be able to cook healthier meals with nutrients intact.
Another selling point of titanium cooking ware is that it does not react with your ingredients because it is non porous. This makes it safe that you eliminate the possibility of ingesting harmful metal materials and it does not alter the taste and flavor of your dishes. Provided with a covers made of glass which can withstand high temperatures, this allows you to look at the dish you are preparing without taking of the cover.
Worth mentioning again is the weight of titanium cookware. For its durability, you may think that it should be heavy like the copper pots and pans, but it is actually very light. This is a big advantage to petite sized cooks who may have a hard time with heavy cookware and convenient when transferring the cookware or bringing it along to cook outs.
The titanium cookware is also compatible to most cook tops, including induction cook ware and it is safe to wash in automatic dish washers. This makes it suitable for our today’s busy lifestyle.
There are many brands to choose from if you are considering this type of cookware. The best cookware brands include woll titanium cookware, all clad and wolfgang puck cookware, among others.
If you would compare titanium with either copper or brass, which are also good and tested cookware materials, experience would tell you that these materials run the risk of corroding which either would make you buy a new one or risk you health with contaminants.
Having discussed the benefits and advantages of titanium cooking ware, it’s probably time you give it a try. Investing in a good cookware will give you a better cooking experience which you can pass on to the next generation. You’d leave a legacy with your cooking!
