Hola!

Well the bottom plate is coated so if you pound it out you will just flake off a bunch of porcelain, I would not advise doing that. It will not affect the performance of the unit and a lot of them due warp a bit so even if you buy a new one it will likely happen again. I would just leave it alone. The knobs are expensive for the unit nearly 50 dollars each or about 900 Pesos so not sure if you want to order them.

All I ask is please select the 5 STAR rating at the top of your page before leaving otherwise I receive ZERO credit for assisting you. Thanks and you can come back anytime for free followup questions.
