    I thought I should not use my George Foreman griller because
    I have a Galah in the house and one of the roomies has a
    Budgie. I do not cook much anyway but
    told the two girls living here they could not use that griller
    because of the coating and actually as it was a gift and I
    really liked using it (never knew the coating of teflon or
    whatever things are coated with are a health hazard either)
    until I read these board, I was sorry I could not make toasted
    sandwiches and cook hamburgers in it so Dave I am very pleased
    to hear the George Foreman Grill is safe. It must be coated
    with something else which is safe? I was thinking perhaps
    because the lid closes? but oven doors do also so it must just
    be a safe type of coating?
    p.s. Glad you asked Katie.
