de Buyer Mineral B - Brand New Pan Deformed in Cooking Surface

Hurry_Da_Curry | Apr 9, 201508:54 PM

This De Buyer Mineral B carbon steel pan has numerous threads here on Chow, but I couldn't find exactly what I needed to know.

I bought this new Mineral B pan online and as soon as I opened it up, I noticed some deep scratches in the cooking surface. My fingernail catches these scratches.
I'm not sure if this is in the beeswax coating or down into the metal itself. Photos are attached to this post.

Is this something I should worry about?
Should I return/exchange the pan?

I posted this on another site but I didn't get much of a response. I'm hoping the Chow community can help.
