Re: PTFE's, PFOA's, Silicon, and Ceramic Cook/Bakeware

Parrots are at risk in the kitchen even with no pans. Gas burners can create carbon monoxide and other toxic gases and birds are very sensitive to this. Heating certain foods can release volatile compounds into the air which might be injurious, and burnt foods create smoke, which is bad because of toxic components including fine particulates. Our house is very small, so it's not feasible to keep the bird far from the kitchen, so I turn the (externally vented) fan on over the stove any time I'm using it and I'm a stainless steel / cast iron / glass junkie.
