In prep for getting a bird I'm doing some research into Teflon alternatives, since I'll be giving away all Teflon pots/pans I have before bringing Birdie home.
I stumbled across a Belgian brand called Green Pan. Here are the claims the company's website makes:
- A natural, non-stick mineral-based coating.
- No potentially dangerous chemical’s inside: It’s completely PTFE-free and contains no silicone oil.
- Manufactured without PFOA and applied in an environmentally friendly way, resulting in 60 % less CO2 emissions.
- Heat resistant up to high temperatures. If you accidentally overheat your pan, even up to 450°C/850°F, no toxic fumes will be released and the coating will not blister or peel.
So it looks like these pans should be ok for a bird-friendly home.
Has anyone here used Green Pans before?
PS here's a link to their corporate website.

You don't need to worry about Teflon (per-say) but PTFE. PTFE is the ingredient in a brand name called Teflon. PTFE can be found in any item that heats up. This can be from ovens, dryers, toasters, toaster ovens, grills, bakeware, hair dryers, etc.
When in doubt, contact the manufacturer!
