Dead spots on coils of electric stove - can this warp my cookware?

MarleneDietrich | Dec 18, 201807:45 AM     4

Hello,

I have a cheap aparment electric coil stove with dead spots (they don't light up when the elements are on). It doesn't seem to affect its ability to cook, but I'm wondering if this uneven heating could eventually warp the bottoms of my pans. I'm not really worried about my ancient Reverwares, but I'm concerned about my Fissler, Silga Teknika, and Demeyere pots and pans. Do all of these have a thick enough bottom that warping is pretty much impossible, or should I get the coil elements replaced?

Thank you!
