Possible to Unwarp a Roasting Pan

The first time I used my Cuisinart roasting pan, it warped, as you can see here:



I cooked a 10 pound turkey in a roasting bag in a 350 degree oven, and boing.

So, is there any way to warp it back? If it warped up into the pan, then at least it would sit flat on the counter.

The obvious is to whack it with a mallet, but I thought I'd see what you guys say first.

Thanks,

Al

I would like to know too. I have a similar looking roasting pan. I'm not sure what brand. I bought it at Costco. It also warped on first use.

I used it for chicken and it took forever for the chicken to roast. I put it in another roasting pan to finish. I think the high, shiny sides were reflecting the heat away from the chicken.

Turn it over and push down on the bulge.

Well, I found some pages via googling that explained how to heat it, then place a 2x4 on it, and whack that with a mallet.

But, as I was getting ready to do that, I turned it over, and pushed down medium hard on the bottom, and it sprang back perfectly! (Andy and I were posting at the same time).

I wonder whether it would have warped had I placed the turkey on a rack inside the pan.

It will go back. I would just place it upside down on the floor and kneel on it. But, I think it will continue to do that every time you use it

You may have only succeeded in cosmetically removing the warp. You won't find out until you use it again and subject it to heat.

However...at 350 degrees, the pan should not have warped unless you gave it a sudden jolt of cold water, which definitely would make it warp.

If you didn't shock it with a drastic and sudden temperature change then I would march the pan back to the store for a refund or a replacement.

+1. A good quality pan shouldn't warp.

Right. I didn't shock it, but I don't want to go through the bother of mailing it back to Amazon. I'll use it until I find a better one at a garage sale.

It probably makes a pretty good, large, lasagna pan.
