Default The risk of an air-fryer?

Hello,

My SO and me got two budgies yesterday after months of consideration. We've learned that Teflon is very harmful to birds and have bought some new pans to avoid it.
However, we also bought an air-fryer yesterday and didn't think about the possibility of Teflon used in it. Googling it doesn't give much results either.
I was wondering how harmful potential Teflon in an air-fryer could be, as we think the temperature may be lower and more constant/stable compared to the dangerous heat spikes on a gas stove that releases the toxic fumes.

Does anyone have any experience with budgies and air-fryers and can answer this? I really don't want to risk the health of the budgies too much, but we're not sure about the actual risk here.

Thanks in advance for the help!

When in doubt, I always like to write the manufacturer and ask them if there is Teflon in their product. Personally, I wouldn't risk any appliance that I wasn't 100% certain was free of teflon.

Hi there and to the forums!

I agree with BlueBirdNYC above. It's always best to be 100% sure before using an appliance. I got an electric skillet as a Christmas present from a friend and have not used it yet as I have contacted the manufacturer to inquire if the product has any Teflon or similar coating.

Best of luck with getting the answers you seek!

Meanwhile, we'd love to meet your little one! What's his/her name?

Be sure to also read through the forums to ensure you're up to date on the very best of budgie care. If you have any questions afterwards, please be sure to ask as we'd love to help.

Hope to see you around!

Hi! to Talk Budgies

It's definitely best to contact the manufacturer to ensure there are no PTFE's in the coating on the air fryer.

Hiya, thanks for the warm welcome.

I have sent a message to the manufacturers of the air-fryer, still waiting on a response.

My partner and I are still debating on the names, it's much harder than expected to pick. Leaning towards 'Sam and Moos'. I'm Dutch, so it sounds better in my language. The budgies are two young males (one green, one blue) and are starting to be more daring and active since yesterday. They generally like each other's company, but at times still bicker a bit. Still trying to find out why. The blue one also already learned how to move the swing in such a way the green one can't swing on it anymore.

But thanks for the warm welcome again and I'll make sure to ask questions when in doubt.

Some bickering is normal. Think of little toddlers -- one minute they are getting along fine and the next, not so much.

As long as there is no overtly aggressive behavior or bullying it's nothing to be concerned about.

What she said. Also, when birds are stressed (and since they are in a new environment, they are stressed), they can be a bit testier with each other.

I actually came on to post about this- I follow a bird Facebook page, and one of the other members lost her entire flock of Indian ring necks to an air fryer. I received one for Christmas, but want to send it back- I don't like Teflon anyway...
