Daily maintenance of pans and utensils is very important, and titanium pans are no exception. Although titanium pans have advantages over ordinary pans, such as no coating, less oily smoke, physical non-stickiness, sturdiness, and durability, etc., they still need to be carefully taken care of and cleaned in time to keep the pan surface bright and make the life of the titanium pan longer. So, how to clean and maintain the titanium pan in daily life? In this article, we will introduce several tips for using titanium pans.
Wash the newly-purchased titanium pan with detergent, and then clean it with hot water to remove impurities such as oil and floating ash. Then pour clean water into the pan, add a little white vinegar, place it on the stove to boil, turn off the heat, and rinse with hot water to remove impurities such as metal and oil.
The cleaned titanium pan is placed on the stove again, and the stove is turned off after the water is removed. Pour a little cooking oil while the pan is warm, and evenly spread the cooking oil on the inner wall of the titanium pan with a soft cloth. Or use lard to spread it evenly on the inner wall of the titanium pan, and leave it for 6-8 hours or longer for better results.
The thermal conductivity of the titanium pan is very good, and it can have the effect of a normal pan with a high fire when using medium and small fire. Cooking is energy-saving and time-saving, as well as less oily smoke. In addition, titanium is extremely active, as the number of times of use increases, the surface oxide film will become thicker, and the more you use it, the better.
Before cooking, you need to heat the pan, and then pour the oil. Add food when the oil is hot so that it will not stick to the pan. If you are not sure whether the pan is hot enough, you can do a simple test with water: drop a little water into the pan, if the water touches the pan, it will immediately become water droplets and slide along the surface of the pan, indicating that the temperature is high enough to pour oil; if the water droplets evaporate and no droplets are formed, the pan is not hot enough.
When cleaning the inner layer of the pan in daily use, if there are no obvious oil stains, the cleaning is quite simple. Just use a rag to clean it, and then rinse it off with water.
If there are a lot of oil stains on the bottom of the pan, you can soak it in clean water for a while, then pour in detergent and wipe it with a scouring pad vigorously and clean it.
You can also add an appropriate amount of white vinegar and water to the pan for heating, and after fully soaking and cooling the temperature, wipe and clean with a scouring pad.
If you do not use the titanium pan for a long time, put the pan in a dry place after cleaning.
