Teflon will outgass around 600 degrees and mild flue like symptoms have been reported.
Your cooking oil, lard or shortning will have reached it's smoke point between 350-425 degrees and the smoke produced will have killed your birds long before you reach the teflon's ourgassing temperature.

Not to mention you now need to wash the curtains and every other exposed fabric in the house... did I just give myself away as having some experience with burning oil??

I like bamboo because of how smooth it feels when stirring. If you are stirring anything really hot with metal and it hangs up it could splash causing burns to the skin. I mainly use bamboo for everything. The Asians have been using it for thousands of years so it must be good.

Thanks for the answers everyone.

Today I bought this 'GSI: Nylon 3 px Ring set'.
Made by GSI themselves. So I guess it's good.

Hello people,

Although I allready bought the 'GSI: Nylon 3 px Ring set'. Afterwards I have some doubt's: Are those 'GSI: Nylon 3 px Ring set' untensils compatible with my Hard Anodized Extreme Non-Stick Wok Set? Are thos untensils able to stand the wok heat?

I'm asking myself, because I read about some type of 'nylon', not about silicone.
What's your opinion?

Happy cookings,
