Purchasing a titanium skillet for your cookware collection can be a great benefit. Because of the non-stick coating, you don't have to use a lot of oils and water, which leads to healthier cooking. The titanium skillet also conducts heat extremely well which means faster cooking times. The titanium skillet will cost you more than a regular skillet. However, by taking care of your titanium you can have a piece of cookware that will last you for many years to come.

Step 1

Refrain from placing your titanium skillet inside of the oven or a microwave. Only use it on top of the stove or range. When placing the skillet on the range, do not let the skillet "pre-heat" more than a minute or two. The titanium heats up quickly and just sitting on the heat can cause deformation and discoloring to your skillet.

Step 2

Avoid using non-stick sprays on your titanium skillet. The skillet already has a non-stick coating. Extra sprays will lead to a build-up on the surface of the titanium and impair the natural non-stick coating.

Step 3

Cleanse the skillet with a liquid dish detergent and a soft dish cloth or sponge. Because of the non-stick surface, this is generally all that is needed to wash the skillet.

If you are dealing with food that has been burned inside of the skillet and it is difficult to clean via the normal routine, fill the skillet with water and bring the water to a boil. This should release the burnt residue. After the residue has been released, you can proceed with normal washing.

Step 4

Avoid using abrasive cleaners and scouring pads, such as steel wool, on the skillet. These products will damage the finish.

Step 5

Dry the skillet with a towel. It should be completely dry before you store it.
