Why is titanium awesome for water bottles? Titanium is uber-strong. Better than simply light-weight, titanium has incredible strength-to-weight ratio. This material is so strong, in fact, that it’s used to shield and protect the pilots of many military aircraft! Titanium has a very high melting point. Titanium melts at more than 3000 °F—that’s more than twice the melting point of aluminum. You’re going to have a VERY hard time scorching a pot made from titanium. Titanium is non-reactive.
Titanium doesn’t rust, and doesn’t react with even the most acidic foods. Acids as weak as tomato sauce can discolor even stainless steel or un-coated aluminum cookware.
Since titanium is non-reactive, it won’t leach anything into your food or drink—even if you’re boiling an acidic liquid in it for a prolonged period of time. Titanium won’t leach. Many people worry about plastic, lined, or aluminum water bottles leaching chemicals (like BPA) into their booze.
Since titanium is non-reactive, it won’t leach anything into your booze. Just as important, titanium won’t impart any off-flavors to liquor. An expensive single-malt will retain the rich, unique flavor you paid for—and won’t taste rusty or synthetic.
Titanium looks awesome. Titanium has a futuristic, dull gray sheen. Even to my jaded eyes, this material just screams “cool.”
