Default Re: Not flat edge to edge: my first skillet (Puritan 8D by Favorite)

It's possible that the trough was created when the piece was being ground smooth after casting. My understanding is that the grinding process was done by a relatively small, spinning grinding stone that was passed down the sides of the pan, then across the cooking surface while the pan also rotated. It is possible that the person grinding this pan spent too much time on the corner edge and produced a trough. It may not have passed quality control, but could have been taken home by an employee or been sold as a "seconds" piece.
