The December 2006 Issue of Gourmet Retailer Magazine Editor's Choice issued the following:
According to Market Researcher Packaged Facts, as many as 11 million Americans are afflicted with serious allergies to common foods like milk, wheat and peanuts. More consumers are turning to gluten- and allergy-free foods both to manage specific food sensitivities and simply as part of a trend toward more healthful eating. Unfortunately, taste-wise, many of the products out there still need some tweaking. Thankfully, I came across a company that is setting standards in the taste of gluten-free foods. 1-2-3 Gluten Free is a small women-run company that makes mixes for baked goods in a dedicated gluten-free (and peanut-free and nut-free) kosher facility. All products are gluten-free, wheat-free, nut-free and peanut-free. Many are also free of soy, corn, egg and dairy (including casein) and their labels clearly indicate this. Since my mom is sensitive to wheat, but has a wicked sweet tooth, I'm always searching for products that taste as good as the real thing. We recently whipped up a batch of Chewy Chipless Scrumdelicious Cookies and added our own semi-sweet chocolate and butterscotch chips to the mix (all of the products are extremely versatile and the Web site features fabulous recipe suggestions). Without doubt, these were the best tasting gluten-free cookies we've ever had -- the cookies baked up a perfect golden brown with a silky smooth texture and great "mouthfeel," which is unique in the gluten-free market. In fact, you'd never know these were gluten-free. For more information, visit www.123glutenfree.com

You can hand wash as well. It is advisable to pull out the wooden handle so that you are sure to get it really clean. Additionally, if you let the 2 parts dry separately, then you won't get black mold growing inside.
I have not been yet, but I understand you can call ahead for gluten-free tea at the Savoy (it is apparently expensive, as I would expect, but very, very good, and fun). I will be in London and Paris later this summer. I have travelled to both previously and done fine with gluten-free, even in pubs. There are wonderful Thai and Indian restaurants in London and those were my favorites. Enjoy your trip.
