What is The Best Titanium Cookware? Reviews For 2016

Today in this titanium cookware review, we are not only going to share some of the best titanium cookware that we have tried ourselves, we hope to provide an in-depth guide so you can make an informed decision before deciding which products to go for.

What is Titanium Cookware Made of?

Titanium cookware is pots and pans made from ultra-durable metals such as titanium or titanium alloys.

In fact, it’s considered one of the strongest heavy metals around.

Not only it’s durable, it is also extremely light in weight. They weight around 40% to 45% lighter than steel.

Titanium cookware is constructed with an aluminium base that is optimum for fast heat transfer and even heat distribution.

Is Titanium Cookware Safe?

You may have known that although Teflon coated pans are able to produce non-stick surface for cookware, the material contains toxic chemicals that actually poses great harm to our health.

Titanium-made cookware on the other hand is a level above Teflon but without posing dangerous health hazards.

Firstly, titanium is non-toxic. Secondly, they are very durable constructed with extraordinary strong metals.

Though they are very sturdy, they are pretty light in weight.

So if you are not used to cooking heavy pots and pans, then titanium cookware will be another good choice for you to consider.

Heavy metals such as copper and cast iron will release toxics when excessively used at high heat for a long period of time.

On the other hand, research has shown that titanium is one of the metals that poses the least health risks as they do not react with food, do not absorb or leech into the food.

Benefits of Using Titanium Cookware

Cleaning is simple and easy with titanium pans.

The material will not rust and food will not stick to your pots and pans, most of the time to say the least.

Dishwashing liquid should do the cleaning job well. You may not even have to use abrasive cleaners to scrub your pots.

For stubborn stains and grease, soak some warm water with salt or vinegar for around 1 to 2 hours.

Those grease and stains should disappear right before your eyes. Rinse the cookware after that and dry them immediately.

It is not necessary to cook with oil when you are using titanium, this actually helps to retain the flavour of food much better.

Many users always think that cooking with high temperature is faster but it doesn’t always have to be the case.

Titanium is a fast-heating heavy metal, it has the capability to cook faster so you are able to reduce the amount of cooking time.

With titanium, you can even cook with heat below 250 degree F and it will work wonder by preserving the nutrients and not losing them.

Titanium pans and pots can also be safely used in oven. Besides, they are resistant to warps, dents and scratches.

But do take note that every product will undergo wear and tear. However with titanium, very slight scratches are the only wear and tear you may see.

What Are The 3 Best Titanium Cookware?

Titanium pots and pans may not be the most beautiful around when compared to other types of cookware but it certainly pack a punch in terms of durability and safety health concerns.

We have tried and tested different brands but the below 3 are what we think is the best titanium cookware so far.

There might be new products emerging from the market so we will review and update the list as soon as we find better ones and tested them.

1. Anolon Titanium Hard Anodized Nonstick 10-Piece Cookware set

Best Titanium cookware - Anolon Hard Anodized

The Anolon titanium cookware set includes 8-quart stockpot with cover; 8-inch and 10-inch skillet; 1.5-quart and 2-quart saucepan both with covers and a 10 inch saute pan with cover.

It is excellently constructed with heavy duty, extra thick hard anodized aluminium.

The aluminium material allows fast and even heat distribution throughout the entire pots and pans.

The material is hard enough that metal utensils can be used for this titanium cookware set without scratching the surface.

It has really good resistant towards dents and scratches and can withstand from any external physical pressure if any.

The HollowCore handles are nicely designed with 18/10 stainless steel. When you hold the handles you can feel that it’s comfortable.

The cookware set can withstand the oven heat of up to 500 degree F. We recommend no more than 400 degree F just to be safe.

This hard-anodized titanium pots and pans set can be used in a dishwasher. Though we have tested the set in dishwasher and it works quite well, I do not think we will be using in it very often.

We believe that using hand wash is still the best if you can afford the time to do so. It is to prolong the lifespan of the cookware.

Last but not least, we really like the non-stick feature by DuPont Autograph 2. It performs much better than many non-stick cookware out there and most importantly it’s non toxic.

One of the best titanium cookware sets around in the market and we always recommend to our friends and fellow mums.

Most of the Anolon titanium cookware reviews that we received from our consumers are very positive, so definitely we highly recommend this set.

2. Woll Nowo Titanium 11-Inch Fry Pan with Detachable Handle

Best Titanium Frying Pan - Woll Nowo

The Woll Nowo Titanium frying pan is one of the many fry pans that is well-designed with heavy duty handles.

They are not just normal handles but are patented detachable handles that you can attach and remove easily.

All you need to do is to click forth and back to attach and detach respectively.

The feature of detachable handles are not for fun or for show. It’s a great feature when you have trouble with storage space. It helps to allow for easier storage and cleaning.

If you are concerned about whether the handles will become loose after some time, I would say probably not.

We have stress tested it for nearly a year attaching and detaching the handles but it still fix firmly to the fry pan without any issue.

The brand Woll is from Germany and they are easily recognizable to produce excellent quality cookware products made of titanium.

The non-stick properties are PFOA free and will not release toxics.

We have also tested the non-stick feature and it turned out to durable and easy to clean without the need of dishwasher (although this fry pan is dishwasher compatible).

Another interesting feature about the Woll Nowo titanium frying pan is that you can transform it into a pan for baking or pie making just by clicking off the attached handle.

3. Snow Peak Titanium Cookware

Best Titanium Cookware for outdoor - Snow Peak

The 2 pots (1 small and 1 large) and fry pan are an excellent cookware set if you are packing for some outdoor camping and hiking.

If you are looking for light weight yet sturdy titanium camping cookware for backpacking, then it will not disappoint you.

It is also very convenient for storing and packing purposes.

Although aluminium is cheaper and can also do the job of efficient cooking, titanium alloys are actually a better heat conductivity and resistance in carbonization.

Even if the cookware accidentally catches on fire, they are less likely to tarnish and melt as titanium alloys can withstand high heat quite well.

Though the Snow Peak titanium cookware set is thin, it has the quality good enough to cook well.

I have tried cooking pasta and lasagne while on a camp and it amazes me, the food doesn’t burn and the taste is great.

After cooking, I would pour the food on the titanium frying pan as it can be used like a plate!

Cleaning does not trouble me too, it’s as easy as clearing up the cookware at home.

However do take note that this set of backpack pots and pans is designed for 2 to 3 people. So if you are going to a camp with a bunch of friends, then maybe it will take a few rounds to cook the portion for that number of people.

The verdict? For me, this Snow Peak 3-piece pots and pans set could emerge as the best titanium cookware set for 1-person backpack.

So would highly recommend them if you want to reduce weight on your backpack and have an outdoor cookware set that can lasts for a long time.

We do not believe there is a single brand that produces the best titanium cookware but rather does the cookware brand has the features that you are searching for.

Different brands will surely has their pros and cons. Some sell individual pots and pans while some have sell in a set.

Currently in the market there isn’t a ton of manufacturers or companies that produces titanium cookware. I can list down a few which we have tested and can vouch for their quality.

Brands like Woll, Evernew, Anolon and TOAKS have great titanium products.

If you are looking for backpacking cooksets, Snow Peak is a company that specializes in it.

Titanium cookware may be more expensive than other types of cookware because of the material used to produce.

Also do make sure that the titanium is made in Germany as it produces authentic quality that can stand the test of time.

Watch out for replicas or knock-offs titanium cookware in the market. Their coatings can be toxic and the quality wouldn’t last.

To get original titanium pots and pans, we would recommend to go for huge ecommerce sites like Amazon. You can find high-quality titanium cookware there. Other alternatives are Costco, Macy’s etc.

They have buyer protection and most of the stuffs sold there are authentic.

Remember if there’s somewhere selling much cheaper, be very careful because it might be a knock-off.
