That's certainly one easy way to handle it.

OTH, if you bought a house that already had Moen faucet and didn't know it had a lifetime warranty and didn't have a receipt, it would be a nice surprise that the hardware store just handed you a new, replacement, Moen faucet. I would guess that most people with that experience would become fairly loyal customers of that hardware store.

OP. Good job. Now get out the mallet and correct it. Make it lay perfectly flat.
Mine is a bit raised in the center. I went a little further as i know it will eventually return to where it was.
It sure is easy isn't it!

It would be a nice surprise. Also, there's no wait. You can fix the problem today!

If it is raised in the middle, wouldn't it work to put it on a hard surface, right side up, and pound the middle? With a hard, flat surface underneath, it shouldn't get "saggy bottomed" from the pounding.

Yes, it was much easier than I thought. It's not rocking, so it's good enough. If it droops again I'll repeat the process. It doesn't take long.

Not necessarily. In many cases it is clearly stated that the warranty will be respected by the manufacturer, not the store. In some cases the store will support it too, but that all depends on the policy of the individual retailer.

Why? tenspeed is happy with the results she got and she can live with it. I have to assume she doesn't want to push her luck. Perfection isn't all it is cracked up to be.

I had a Calphalon Everything pan and the non-stick coating started to flake off, starting at the edges. I took it to bed bugs and beyond and they gave me a new pan and, I assume, shipped the flaky pan back to Calphalon for a credit. I did not buy the pan there, I got it through Amazon, but they didn't even ask.

She??? Cooking is far too important of a job to leave to a woman! All of my wife's friends agree with me, and they wish their husbands shared my opinion.
