I love my birds, but I love non-stick cookware also.
Are the two mutually exclusive? Not anymore. Forget Teflon, now there's ceramic non stick. Greening (as seen on TV) is a waste of money. Check out Ozeri cookware. We did and now cooks and birds are happy!

P.S. sorry if this sounds like a shill for Ozeri Cookware, but the stuff is great, and now I have more time to spend spoiling my Amazon, Max, and our Parrotlet, Henry.
