Not to completely avoid the subject…
But I would consider getting a cool mist humidifier. While I have boiled water myself in an urgent need, it is wasteful from an energy standpoint. It takes six times as much energy to change water at 212 degrees into steam at 212 degrees then it takes to heat water from 32 degrees to 212 degrees. It’s the phase transition that takes up all of the energy (water having a high specific heat).
The cool mist humidifies work by atomizing the water (shooting such small droplets into the air that they become suspended and disperse). This takes up far less energy and is much more efficient. It’ll be cheaper in the long run for you.
The previous posters were right about the teflon pans though. Teflon will begin to break down at high temperatures, and the fumes can be toxic (though one pot’s worth is probably not enough to significantly harm a human- different with birds as you know):
All of my nonstick pots and pans long ago got stained and burned. It’s almost like a good grill…probably adding to the flavor each time I cook with it:)…lol
