Balancing a Warped Skillet

This may have only happened to me. But if you ever have this happen, you will probably remember this tip.

I have a fry pan that is warped. I have to buy used and sometimes when you see a good price you grab it without much thought.


This pan leans to the left and won't cook things evenly. So today I decided to see what I could do to balance it out. One of my spice bottles did the trick.

You can see the difference between them and how much better it is.

I hope this helps if you ever have the same problem. Now if you will excuse me I am off to see if I can pound out the bulge in the middle or go get another skillet.

Looks like it's working great propped up.

If there is a bump in the middle you could try putting a piece of wood inside and pounding on the wood with a hammer.

Yeah, I think I will try that but it's just a cheap skillet. I will get the thicker ones from now on. Thanks!!

I think it's time for a new pan. It looks like your pan is made of Teflon? That's a potentially dangerous pan because when it's damaged, scratched or starting to peel it releases a poisonous gas.


Sometimes it's better to just spend the money on a new frying pan and take very good care of it.
