So, as article says, not all titanium cookware created equal. Know what materials are used per manufacturer.

I had the most amazing 15” cast iron fry pan, that was my grandmothers, that I used for many years after she passed. One day while making spaghetti sauce, I picked it up to pour the sauce on the pasta, and the handle “broke” off leaving a “V” shaped crack in the side of the pan. I cried over the loss of that pan... I still miss it.

I so agree! I feel so much better about using my old cast iron skillet with no toxins in them. I have enough problems from food sensitivities without adding a lot of unnecessary chemical reactions to my food.

I use stainless steel or cast iron. The secret for stainless steel and cast iron is to get the pan searing hot, let cool down a little add oil and then heat it back up. Nothing will stick. My cast iron is so slick it feels like glass. Non stick doesn't last very long so don't spend a lot on a skillet. Many consumer reviews says Rachael Ray's non stick lasts the longest. I don't use any non stick if it has scratches in it. Never heat non stick pans to high heat. All ceramic coated pans scratch easily.

I have these pans too. I never use Pam spray on them. Look for a spray that is "non propellant." Works better and doesn't damage non stick surfaces. You can also buy spray bottles and fill with your own oils. I prefer pans that are not the "copper colored" ones. They hold up better. Love the easy cleanup.

I have to say that after I used my pans a few times, they now let everything slide around. I am liking them much better and the copper pans wash up so much faster than the other non-stick pans. After I bought the copper pans from Costco, I came across one of the original 'as seen on TV' pans and purchased it since I didn't have a square pan anymore. Their directions said to season the pan first before using. I did this and it worked right off the bat and didn't stick like my other copper pans did at first. Okay, so now I am a believer and am enjoying my copper pans.

On cast iron, swish the oil (very little) around bottom of pan and up the sides, wipe out with paper towel and heat to set oil You now have a "seasoned" cast iron pan.

I've been curious about the copper pans, but I have been buying cast iron instead. I have a set of Revere Ware (the original copper bottom pans) that dates back to 1948 and still going strong. Can't give them up! Also picked up a set of Caphalon pots at auction and absolutely love them.
Pam also leaves grills sticky and hard to remove.
