John,

My wife gave me a scratched teflon frying pan. 

I put it in the stove, get the water warn-to hot, not boiling. I dont put more than 1/4" of water. I let it stay about 39 seconds at a time, then check to see if is warm.  Once the material us warm, I take it out and lay it on a piece of granite left over from remodeling the kitchen. 

Usually I can get it flat in one to two attempts.  The key is to get all the material warm (gently) so that it will stay flat when laid out. I was never successful with putting it under a lamp and letting the heat from a bulb heat the resin. Try fi doing anything but an LED light now.

Any advice Mike, on how to straighten warped pieces?

I have an HOn3 WP&Y depressed center flat done in the FED/Smoothest resin. It
bowed up to about a 20 degree difference in the end deck angles.  I tried to
straighten it, and broke it.  Is there any way to safely straighten such?
