I have had Fern 10 months cooking with Teflon. Do you think I have done damage? Would I know? I will go buy different pans though, just worried because she has definitely been exposed 10 months now.

What a great informative website this is!

Re: Bird-safe nonstick cookware?

I've never participated in a forum before but I joined this one to warn against non-stick cookware. Cooking is a hobby but I cook without non stick. Period.

Years ago, before I had access to the Internet, I accidentally killed my little Romeo, the love of my life, because I was heating some water in a non-stick pot and forgot about it. Romeo and I were in another room and there was no smoke, but one second he was in my hand playing with me and literally, the next second he gasped once as if he couldn't breathe and then he was dead. There was no resuscitating him. He was alive and then he was dead. Whatever Teflon releases into the air is invisible but deadly. Again, there is no time to react - these little guys can die that fast because their lungs are so very efficient. They are NOT like mammals. All these years later I still can't forgive myself. Ignorance is no excuse. I had never owned a bird before and I took such pride in cooking food for him and keeping a clean home for him - he was always on my shoulder, hiding behind my hair and laughing in my ear when I laughed. I miss him so much. I can't stress this enough. This happens in the blink of an eye, too fast to rush them out of the house or to get help. They just die. Please, please don't take a chance with your bird's life. No matter how careful you are with non-stick cookware, a child can get hurt, someone knocks on the door, a million things can occur to distract you and literally in the same second it will kill your bird so fast it will take your breath away.
