Re: Bird-safe nonstick cookware?

I had some anodized aluminum pans. I have not been very impressed. They may be slightly-less-stick, but not non-stick. They also tend to scratch easily and once scratched, everything sticks to them.

Ceramic sounds like a good idea. I don't have a ceramic pan (I should look for one) but ceramics are easiest to care for and are *really* non-stick.

For pans I primarily use a well seasoned cast iron pan. It takes a bit of care - but when well cared for nothing sticks and it cooks wonderfully. And in the event of a home invasion it can make a handy weapon

Re: Bird-safe nonstick cookware?

I was responding to the thread - I've never heard of 'Tangled'.

I also had not heard of Analon - but that seems to be a company that sells various types of cookware including teflon, anodized aluminum, and stainless steel.

Re: Bird-safe nonstick cookware?

In 'Tangled' the girl uses a cast iron pan to defend from home invasion which then catches on and in the end a whole kingdom adopts the use of the cast iron pan as a weapon !

Re: Bird-safe nonstick cookware?

I have a greenpan that I adore. It chipped a little around the edges when i first got it, but it works great!

Re: Bird-safe nonstick cookware?

Just read the comments about other non teflon pans.. I should do more research on Green Pan before I go vouching for it. I believe it's coated with ceramic and silicon, but now I will have to double check! I haven't really used it since I got Puck.

Thought someone should clear this up for future visitors: "anion" is not a chemical compound. That SDS you found is for a "Strong Base Anion Exchange Resin Chloride Form". It is a resin which exchanges anions, and is unrelated with cookware. Anion is simply an ion, the opposite of a cation: a particle with a negative charge. Also there is no "outer layer", the ecolon coating is a single layer, and the manual mentions that it uses rock, sand and dirt as it's source materials.

Air ionizers, for example, release anions to disrupt microbe cells and capture airborne dust. So, the pan releasing anions is a good thing - that's why it figures on some specifications and comparisons with teflon pans (which do not release ions). There are no known effects from ionizers on birds, and in comparison the amount released from a pan would be minimal.

Re: Bird-safe nonstick cookware?

I have a set of cast iron that is over 100 years old and never sticks! Love the stuff. And it will last for many generations to come!
