2 Replies and 993 Views Silicon Bakeware  993  2 Started by  Dave V Does anyone know if it is safe to use Silicon Bakeware with Parrots (as opposed to Teflon which I know is a no-no). I have only found one article which says definitely not but I would really like some more results and preferably from the UK I feel reluctant to make a decision based on just 1 result but for the time being have decided to lay off silicon 'just in case'. Any comments gratefully received. Thanks, Dave.
