Is this titanium cookset available on Amazon? Has anyone ever used it? I sent an email to the company and I have not gotten a response back. Plus the company is never on the online chat. I don't know if it is because the company may not be US based. The products look good though. If they are on Amazon and others think they are good I would be willing to purchase. Any comments?

Why on earth would anybody want titanium pots and pans?

Light weight, and strong. It would be an alloy anyway. Unadulterated titanium would be prohibitively expensive.

From my searches, the product doesn't *seem* to be sold on Amazon, but I've also discovered through some quick googling (I don't own the set myself) that the Titanware brand "titanium" cooking pans (the cooking ware you posted above) is definitely not worth the money. The pans themselves are made of an aluminum that bends somewhat easily, has a tendency to get scratched or dinged by both metal and plastic utensils, and does not effectively disperse heat. The first 2-3 months of use look to be the best months of the pans' lives before the non-stick surface begins to give up and the aforementioned problems begin to arise. I would suggest looking into stainless steel or anodized aluminum sets by Cuisinart or T-Fal as they seem to be the highest rated in non-stick, semi-professional cooking ware. In fact, the T-Fal Soho was tested by Good Housekeeping and received a very decent review. The skillets have thermal spots to tell you when the pan is heated and ready to go, and the saucepans have measurement marks on the sides. The T-Fal Soho, according to the 2011 study, was $99 for an eight-piece set, which is a much better deal than the $254+ you would pay for the Titanware. Hope this helps!

They are the thing to have for backpacking due to light weight, but it's very expensive.

I wouldn't know. We use steel.

Me too, though I did spring for a titanium coffee cup, which I think was like $15.

Thanks to everyone for all the advice. I won't be purchasing these. I know Titanware is popular at Sam's Club but I don't have a membership. I was able to find an old Amazon posting of the product but it was sold out.

I am actually trying to replace my T-fal set because I am trying to get away from PFTE and POFA in my cooking products. I think I have the T-fal set you are talking about. I looked at stainless steel and anodized aluminum and the problem with these products is that if you ding or scratch them, I have to throw them alway to prevent metals from leaking into my food. My best bet is to stay away from metals because they are toxic. I have seen several warnings about this and I don't want to spend a lot of money on something I may have to throw away because of a scratch or a small ding. I think I am going to look into creamics and the best on the commerical market seems to be Xtrema. I may also try to find safe, handmade creamic products locally.

They sell Xtrema on Amazon. I think it more expensive on Amazon than on their official website. Anyone who is interested may want to check the pricing.

Why do you have to buy a metal set of any kind if you're worried about dinging them? If you like T-Fal, try one of their regular non-metal non-stick cookware sets. We've had ours for many years now (the one that used to be advertised, with the removable handles) and they still work great, are very convenient because the handles come on and off, and they haven't scratched or dented at all.

The problem with T-fal is their nonstick surface contains PFOA which is why I am trying to get rid of my T-Fal set.

I don't know about those claims. All I know is that we've used our T-Fal set on a frequent basis for many years and never gotten sick or had any other health problems whatsoever. My guess is you'd have to ingest quite a bit of the teflon coating to get sick and ours have never even scratched (we are careful with the cooking tools we use, however).

ETA: If you're really that worried about it, you could try cast iron, aluminum, or ceramic cookware. Cast iron is heavy and a giant pain to clean. I don't know about aluminum or copper or if copper is even used for cooking or just decorative. Where I come from, most people have stainless steel and aluminum cookware but I'm not sure how available that is here. For ceramic, there is Le Crueset (sp??) but it costs an arm and a leg to get one piece much less a whole set.

Well, I don't want to take my chances in that way with my life and I do plan on having children later which is why I want to replace the set. PFOA was declared a hazardous material by the federal government so I believe the product is dangerous. Anything that can kill household pets, such as birds is probably dangerous. Also, just because you have not gotten sick, does not mean you don't have high levels of the chemical in your blood. Have you ever gotten your blood tested for PFOA?

To be honest, lots of materials are declared hazardous by the government - it really depends of how much of it that you have to consume before it poses any significant danger to you. For that matter, rotary phones used to have a chemical in them that was hazardous to your health. Certain fish have mercury levels in them so when you eat too much of them a year - not just the occasional fish here or there - you could have a problem. But no need for us to go roundabout in this: if you're convinced you don't want teflon, okay then.

Here's a brand you can try: they claim to be 100% PFOA-free. Be warned though that they are pretty expensive: http://www.amazon.com/s/ref=sr_pg_1?rh=n%3A1055398%2Ck%3Agreenpan%2Cp_4%3AGreenPan&bbn=1055398&sort=price&keywords=greenpan&ie=UTF8&qid=1354917907

These pans would be a good deal but they are pricey. The problem is that if I get one scratch or dent on them, I would have to throw them out because they are made of metal. I don't think I would pay that much for something that won't last that long.

I think GreenPan said on its official site that they also have ceramic cookware. But I don't know if Amazon would carry any of those cooksets.

Here's a quick link to types of cookware by material, price, etc. for easy shopping. Good luck. Hope you find what you're looking for:

Here's another set from a different brand that isn't quite so expensive:
