Hi all, I'm just looking for a bit of advice here on bending some handles. I bought a 15" paella pan (red handles) and, of course, it doesn't fit. But I knew that buying it and knew that I would be bending the handles. I don't mind doing "modifications". :laugh:
My question is, what would be the best way to bend the handles? From what I've read on here there are two ways, heating and bending in a vice or cutting out the rivets, bending and then reattaching.
Has anyone done the heating method (I have a MAPP) that can show some pics? I'm assuming the paint on the handles gets totally burnt away. Has anyone done it the other way mentioned? Would you have to heat the handles anyway?
I guess I just want the least destructive way on the handles. And photos if anyone has some.
BTW...Little Steven, I saw your pan at St.LM, they had the non-stick and carbon steel ($45 & $40).
