This size pan makes enough paella for a dinner for four 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 in the oven, 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.
Seasoning tip: If you coat the pan with olive oil and place it in a 350°F oven for two hours the process will help prevent rust.
Use and Care
Your pan should be washed by hand, quickly dried and coated with a neutral oil after each use to prevent rust. If the pan does develop rust, scrub it off with steel wool before you use it again. Store in a dry place away from humidity. You can also coat the pan with olive oil and place it in a 350°F oven for two hours, which will help prevent rust.
A paella pan can warp if left on a burner too long without anything in it.

"Decent pan, seasoned it before and after cooking but heavy sticking will always be an issue. Oil coating required to head off rust, but this was expected."

"Very disappointed with this pan...it rusts instantly if not dried completely and rubbed with oil. A piece of junk...buy something else!"

"A superior pan for paella, and not just for beginners."

"I bought this pan for regular use in the kitchen, and have a restaurant grade 22" for outdoor parties/directly over a fire. I have only cooked with the small pan once, but the paella turned out great. I made the usual gringo mistake of not enough salt, but other than that it was great. The pan worked a charm, with a lovely light crust on the bottom of the rice. The saffron and sweet paprika gave it just the right zing. Thanks to La Tienda for the right tools, and thanks to the staff at "Cook and Taste" in Barcelona for an awesome cooking class. I can't wait to use the 22" pan for a party now!"

"I give this pan a four star rating for it's durability and functionality. My only complaint is that the pan has two handles and one was missing a screw. I took it out of the box like that. A little upsetting but it works great."
