Hasemoto has more than half a century of metalcraft tradition in Japan.
Titanium is a lightweight, stable, and exceptionally strong metal. It weighs about half of the average steel, it is as strong as stainless steel. Titanium is extremely acid-resistant and does not corrode easily.
Pure titanium is considered a safe choice for cookware because it is non-toxic, stable, resistant to acid degradation, and will not affect the taste of food.

The colour change after use is actually a layer of titanium oxide that buildup gradually and it shields the metal from further degradation.

Before first use... “Oil Seasoning”
First, wash the frying pan/wok’s inner and outer surface with dish soap. Once you have seasoned the inner surface with oil, you can use it right away.
- Pour in enough oil to fill about 1/3 of your frying pan’s capacity and heat it on low for about 5 minutes.
- Turn off the heat and return it to its oil pot or other suitable container.
- Use paper towels to spread the remaining oil fully around the pan's inner surface.
Before every use... “Oil Return”
Professional and skilled amateur chefs always conduct “oil returns” on their frying pans before using them.
- Warm up your frying pan on low to medium heat.
- Add a sufficient amount of oil (about a ladle’s worth) to the frying pan and let it acclimatize to the frying pan’s surface.
- Once the oil has heated up, return it to its oil pot. This is the process known as “oil return”.
- These steps make cooking with a titanium pan/wok easier.
Start cooking and cleaning
- Heat the pan and oil together. Use plenty of oil.
- Use low to medium heat level on your stove top. Pay attention to the oil - once you see signs of a heat wave, turn the heat down to low heat or stay at low heat.
- Once you are this setting you can start putting your ingredients.
- Pure titanium pans and woks are not storage containers. When finished cooking, put any leftovers in an appropriate container.
- Use a scrub sponge to wash it with warm water. Do not wash it in the dishwasher.
- When done, rinse the pan off and wipe it dry.
- Titanium does not oxidise. There is no need to use oil to season it.
