Help from Experienced cooks needed

Can't Post | Private Reply
I have an old but very good Revere Ware 12" copper clad pan, the kind with a lid. Unfortunately, it overheated somewhere along the road and is now warped. The bottom is bowed and it needs propping on the stove or everything in it tends to grvitate to one side. I was tempted to turn it over and try to whack it straight. But the pan looked me in the eye and begged for me to seek another solution. So here I am. Any suggestions or references will be greatly appreciated by both me and the pan. Thanks in advance for your time.

Will give it a try. If I don't respond further on topic, it didn't work for me.

copper is a soft metal and easily shaped by smacking it about.

Smacking it (lovingly!) with a board on the bottom will work (has for me), but an even better solution is to strike it with a hard rubber mallet as one can more easily direct the force onto a specific portion of the bottom than with a board covering the entire bottom.

MANY years ago my father even made a round hard wood insert that could be put INSIDE the pot/pan if the bow was concave rather than convex. That worked too. Made my Mom happy as she loved her Everware cookery. Believe it or not I still have a couple of those pots as they really are EVER Ware (these were purchased in the 1930s!!!). Of course, some of it is just my nostalgia for her and for those memorable days.

Throw it out and buy a new one. You've gotten your moneys worth already. We have Revere Ware that is 22 years old. It NEVER seems to wear out.
