RECENTLY MOVED TO APARTMENT THAT HAS A GLASS/CERAMIC COOKTOP. FLAT BOTTOMED PANS ARE "RECOMMENDED". MINE ARE 30 YR OLD COOPER BOTTOM REVEREWARE. ONLY 2 OF 6 ARE FLAT ENOUGH. WHEN I BOILED EGGS IN ONE OF SAUCEPANS THAT WASN'T EXACTLY FLAT (BUT CLOSE) I HAD A ROCKING ACTION HAPPENING. MY QUESTION IS-IS IT OKAY TO USE ALL OF THE EXISTING PANS OR AM I HARMING THE COOKTOP, THE PAN, THE FOOD OR WHAT? DOES "NOT RECOMMENDED" MEAN DEFINATELY DO NOT USE THOSE PANS OR CAN I USE THEM AND JUST PUT UP WITH QUIRKY ROCKING MOTIONS.
