Cuisinart Stainless steel pan delamination

Sometime in the past this saucepan must have been severely overheated.
Nobody noticed that the bottom has a 1-1/2" dia. blister in the outer layer
of stainless until the glass-top of the new stove won't let the pan sit flat
or conduct heat properly. Is there any way to fix this?

p.s. on the pan, not the stove.

Get your old stove back?
If it's really delaminated then you'll have shot your heat conduction to hell; even if you could get it to sit flat with the rest of the pan that portion still won't carry heat through.

Buy a new one. The way they are constructed there is no way to repair it where you won't end up with a useless pan. Once they split your heat conduction through the bottom goes away.
Just replaced one of my Calphalon pans because it was damaged by excess heat (got hot enough that the handle rivets ran!!!)

I would bet that if you returned it to Cuisinart they would replace it - check the warranty

A hammer. Seriously I'd check the warranty. I have been known to flatten out my aluminum pans that disk a bit with a rubber hammer. Karl

Kark, there's a huge difference. Your pan is one piece, and can be put kinda sorta back to rights with a hammer. The laminated pan isn't going to transmit heat through that air gap worth a darn.

I know. If his stove is an induction top I don't think it would matter though. Karl
