Does AC warranty warped pans

One of my AC pans , which I use daily has developed a warp.
Not huge, but I noticed it rocking.....

Anyone know if their lifetime covers this ?

    You should contact AC. Warpping is usually due to the aluminum core warpping under sudden temperature change. So it is really up to AC if it wants to give you a new pan.

      AC warrantied a roasting pan for me years ago. They did a lot of complaining about how I should not have put it on the stovetop. How the heck was I supposed to deglaze the pan? anyhow, they did replace.

      I have another AC piece, a skillet that has not been level since shortly after I bought it. I'm not sure whether it is warped or just unbalanced since it lists toward the handle. Anyhow, I no longer automatically assume that an AC product is first rate.
