This pan will not fit in a normal oven. We recommend ordering a paella burner and tripod, as well.
This size pan makes enough paella for a dinner for 12 people. It is the traditional steel paella pan used by Spaniards for centuries. The pan bottom is dimpled in order to spread heat evenly. You can use this paella pan either on top of the stove, or on an outdoor grill.
As you use your steel paella pan it will become seasoned: changing color and absorbing more flavors as you continue to cook with it. After each use, treat the pan as you would any steel or cast iron pan: wash it by hand, then season it with a light film of oil to retard rust. Should any rust appear, merely wipe it off.
All of our paella pans are made by a family in Valencia with over 50 years of experience in producing the finest cookware for paella.
