The Benefit of 316ti Stainless Steel with Titanium
Simply put, Titanium added to stainless steel provides an extra barrier against corrosion, especially from salt. Used for years primarily in the boating industry. Is 316ti stainless steel a better metal for cooking? Yes!
Does adding Titanium to stainless steel improve heat conductivity? No! Stainless-steel, with or without Titanium, by itself is a poor conductor of heat. For cooking an additional heat conducting metal must be bonded to the stainless steel for even transfer of heat.
So, what metal is the best conductor of heat? Whereas most cookware companies use carbon steel or aluminum for heat conductivity. SILVER is the Best Thermal Heat Conductor. Twice as good a conductor as aluminum, and 10 times as good as a conductor as low-carbon steel. Copper and gold are good heat conductors as well.
Where can I find 316ti cookware with the Best Heat Conducting Core? Obviously, Gold is not practical, and cookware products with a copper plate, or a thin layer sprayed on, require maintenance and polishing. Is there a cookware with Silver?
Only Ultra-Tech II 316ti Surgical Stainless-Steel 9-Ply with Titanium incorporates an Aluminum Core with Two Layers of PURE SILVER in the Double Ultra-Core “Plus” base providing unsurpassed ability to heat quickly and spread heat evenly throughout the pan. It is the Best Heating Pan ever! For Gas, Electric and incredible on an Induction range.
