Copper Chef Titan Pan FAQs

What is the size of the Copper Chef Titan Pan?

Is there a coating on the Copper Chef Titan Pan that burns off at first use?
No. As with all cookware, remember to wash with nonabrasive soap before first use.


Is the Copper Chef Titan Pan actual copper?
The Copper Chef Titan Pan is a tri-ply pan made with two layers of stainless steel and an inner layer of aluminum with an advanced diamond-infused nonstick coating.


What is the Copper Chef Titan Pan made of?
The Copper Chef Titan Pan is a tri-ply pan that sandwiches a layer of aluminum between two layers of stainless steel. Aluminum conducts heat very well, and the two stainless steel layers help retain the heat. The cooking surface of the pan has a raised steel pattern, which helps produce excellent browning results, and a recessed non-stick diamond particle coating for easy clean-up.


How does the Copper Chef Titan Pan compare to other nonstick and tri-ply pans?
The Copper Chef Titan Pan combines the benefits of nonstick and tri-ply pans. The diamond coating heats up 15% faster than normal nonstick while the pan’s three layers, made of high-quality stainless steel and highly conductive aluminum, evenly distribute and retain heat while protecting the nonstick surface.


Can you cook on an open fire with the Copper Chef Titan Pan?
Although the Pan can be used on an open fire, it is designed for kitchen use.


Do I need to use any butter or oil?
The Copper Chef Titan Pan is the first of its kind designed with an advanced diamond-infused nonstick coating. You only need to add a little butter or oil. For added flavor, you may season the cooking surface with natural oils such as olive, canola, or peanut oil.


Do I need to polish the Copper Chef Titan Pan like traditional copper pots and pans?
You do not need to polish the Copper Chef Titan Pan. You can clean the pan with non-abrasive or mildly abrasive stainless steel cleaner to revitalize the look of the pan if necessary. See the owner’s manual for detailed instructions.


How do I clean my Copper Chef Titan Pan?
We recommend you clean your Copper Chef Titan Pan by hand with water, a mild soap or cleanser, and a soft, nonmetallic scrubber, sponge, or bristle brush. Or, you may put it in the dishwasher.


Is the Copper Chef Titan Pan oven safe?
Yes, it is heat resistant up to 450° F. The glass lid is heat resistant up to 350° F.


Does the Copper Chef Titan Pan contain PFOA?
Absolutely not. The Copper Chef Titan Pan is free of PFOA.


How do I store the Copper Chef Titan Pan?
Copper Chef Titan Series cookware can be stacked using the flat tempered glass lids. To stack the cookware, turn the pan’s lid over so that the lid’s handle is inside the pan. Another pan can be stacked on top of the lid. For best results, stack smaller pans on top of larger pans.


Are there any special safety precautions I should follow?
If you received a lid, using potholders is advised, especially when removing the lid from the pan.


How can I prevent food from sticking?
The chefs at our in-house test kitchen recommend heating the pan first on medium heat before putting food in it. The pan is an excellent conductor and doesn’t require high heat. Before placing food in the pan, make sure the pan is hot enough to cause water or the food you are cooking to sizzle. Placing food in a cold pan will not yield the best results. Once the pan is heated sufficiently, you can turn the temperature down if the food requires slower cooking.


Should I cook in a dry pan or should I use some type of liquid or oil?
The chefs at our in-house test kitchen recommend using a small amount of oil, butter, or shortening instead of cooking in a dry pan.


Do you have any tips for cooking eggs?
The chefs at our in-house test kitchen recommend cooking eggs on medium heat. Heat the pan over medium heat for 1-2 minutes before adding a small amount of butter. The butter should sizzle when you put it in the pan. After the butter sizzles, turn the heat down before putting eggs in the pan. Use a fine-edge spatula to flip or move the eggs.


Do you have any tips for searing meat?
The chefs at our in-house test kitchen recommend using medium heat with some oil when cooking meat like pork medallions or boneless chicken breast. Adding oil will provide great caramelization. For steaks, our chefs recommend using high heat with a small amount of oil.
