De buyer mineral pans and warping

Vicv07 | Nov 9, 2012 04:01 PM

I have two of these. A smaller one(can't remember the size) and an with 30 or 32cm one. Both of them I like very much and rarely if ever use non stick anymore. I figured good heavy pans like these wouldn't warp like cast iron doesn't but my big pan is decidedly warped. It wobbles slightly on my ceramic stovetop and I notice the oil does seem to navigate to the outsides of the pan. Because of the wobble it no longer sits flat on the stove so I now have spots hotter than others. Surprisingly the inside gets hotter yet if oil goes out that seems odd. Long story short have others had this problem with these pans? I've never put water in when very hot and I don't believe I've overheated it. It should be good for quite high heat though. My small one still sits perfectly flat but I don't use it as much
