Alterinitives to Non-stick cookware.

hey guys. with my parrot coming within the year i am convincing my mom to get rid of her teflon cookware. she says she will be more encouraged to agree if i find a good alternitive. so what is there? i read that there is this stuff that HAS a non stick surface and is safe for birds because it doesnt contain teflon, it is made of something else, BUT.....it MAY cause cancer.....soooooo that aint happening....lol. she says no to cast iron because it is so heavy. will an uncoated aluminum work? i read about these aluminum pans/pots that are "hardened". could those work? i will try to give a link to those. what do you guys use besides cast iron?

Re: Alterinitives to Non-stick cookware.

Stainless isnt more expensive, actually it is less because no one wants the stainless because it is harder to clean than nonstick, at least it is less where I live.

Re: Alterinitives to Non-stick cookware.

We just got a nice set of stainless steel at Kohls pretty cheap. I really don't find it much harder to clean and it is nice to be able to use forks, knives and other metal utensils without worrying about scratches. The expensive ones now are the adonized it seems. For bakewear I use glass or aluminum.

Re: Alterinitives to Non-stick cookware.

I have better luck w/cast iron. It doesnt stick, reasonable price.

Re: Alterinitives to Non-stick cookware.

Kudos on you for going to such lengths to educate your mom. Non stick cookware is bad for people too, from what I have heard they are going to stop making it in a few years. I like cast iron because it puts added iron into your food although it is quite heavy. I use SS as well and I just put it in the sink right after I use it with hot water and a drop of dish soap and by the time we're done eating and I'm ready to do the dishes everything comes right off. I'm really interested in the non stick ceramic pans like the orgreenic. It says right on their website that it's safe to use around pet birds and I've heard wonderful things about them. They seem to be a bit pricey but if they last as long as they are supposed then it's well worth it in my opinion.
