Non-stick Dangers

Spreads for web 1

Pamela Howell highlights this potentially lethal issue

The dangers of non-stick coatings on cooking utensils continue to surface as bird owners new to the hobby, or those who haven’t read the articles published in this magazine before, do not realise how hazardous non-stick coatings can be when overheated.

If you were able to visit a commercial kitchen, you might not see many non-stick items being used by professional chefs.
