What about pet birds?

Regarding the safety of pet birds and nonstick coatings, birds have unusually sensitive respiratory systems, and are easily affected by a variety of fumes. For the nonstick cookware itself, there is only a concern if the pan is left empty for a period of time on high heat and overheats. Another other concern is leaving foodstuffs to overheat or burn in the pan. Both may cause fumes which, while not dangerous to humans or most household pets, can adversely affect pet birds.

The more immediate danger lies with the fumes and smoke from overheated foodstuffs, such as cooking oil, fats, margarine, and butter. These foodstuffs will release smoke and fumes at a much lower temperature than any coating, and can be harmful and fatal to pet birds.

Pet birds should always be kept in a well ventilated room, and never in the kitchen.
