GreenPan nonstick pans are made from aluminum, a pan is not always 100% flat when it is cold. The moment that the pan heats up, the bottom should become flat.
In case the pan does not flatten anymore, it could come due to a thermal shock. A thermal shock usually happens due to a sudden rapid temperature change. The most common situations which can cause a thermal shock:
- A cold pan is put on a high heat, especially with induction hobs, which heat up very rapidly. We therefore advice to heat up the pan slowly.
- A hot pan comes in contact with water. For this reason, it is important to let your cookware cool down before washing, or even dipping it, into water.
