Traditional paella pans need seasoning before their first use and can be used on any gas or electric cooker and even on a charcoal grill. Their shape and sloping sides help rice cook evenly and ensure a rich, intense flavor. As paella pans increase in size, they get broader rather than deeper. This allows more 'socarrat' to form; the delicious crispy crust that everyone loves at the bottom. Paellas are made to be shared, so the pans are also perfect for large quantities of food, from stir-frys to roasts.
Paella pans are typically made from steel to achieve balanced heat distribution and fast, even heating. They can range in diameter from single-serving pans up to incredible sizes to feed an army of friends and family. When choosing your paella pan from our wide selection, think about the number of people you'll be serving and where you'll be cooking. Measure your cooktop, grill, or oven space before you decide. There's no fear of spilling due to the design, and the large handles make it simple to transfer to the table and serve.
