The chances are big that you damaged the pan by actually trying to cook something, which is obviously not what they are designed to do. And your warantee wont cover you for overheating, but try anyway.

Good Luck

PS.
Fish is the exception here, where you need a non stick pan.
Remember that companies put those restrictions on their products in order to protect themselves and the consumer from product failure. Those pans can handle more than what the company states, but they're not going to give you the exact limit because there is no way to ensure that every person that buys and cooks with their product will have the aptitude needed to know and be conscientious of those limits. The safest and smartest thing to do is to recommend a limit that is below what the product can handle, that way it can help them protect themselves to a point, and always say "well we told you so" when the product fails due to consumer misuse.

I used it once or twice to cook a chicken breast in. I used it on medium to high heat. The pan doesn't look warped, but she is saying it is cooking uneven.

Here is the model

What are the chances I warped the pan?

John, just to clarify because it only dawned on me now and then when I re-read Andy M's post, but by cooking uneven, do you only mean that the pan is sitting uneven on the burner or do you also mean that the food in the pan is cooking unevenly?

I believe you answere the first part of this question when you said that the pan wobbles a bit but what about the second part?
