An authentic paella pan makes it easy to prepare Spain’s national dish at home – either in your kitchen or on an outdoor grill or fire. Heavy raw steel coated construction ensures efficient heat conduction, while flared sides and a wide cooking surface promote rapid absorption and evaporation of liquid. This classic design allows the rice to cook in a thin layer, encouraging the formation of the delicious bottom crust (the socarrat).
Made in Valencia, Spain.
Use and Care:
These paella pans are made from raw uncoated steel which requires careful use and care to ensure it lasts a lifetime. The more you use the pan the better it becomes as it builds up a lovely patina. Please note the pan will darken and alter in colour with use.
When new, your Paella may appear to have scratches on the surface. These will be on the protective ‘varnish’ that needs to be removed.
Fill your paella with water (as much as practical) and bring to a rolling boil to remove the protective coating (approx. 10 minutes).
Dry then wipe the interior of the pan with a paper towel dipped in vegetable oil (not olive oil).
Place in a very low oven for 1 hour. The pan is now ready to use
Care during use:
This product is designed for use over gas flame or fire. Although this material is suitable for induction, the base is not completely flat and heat transfer may not be efficient.
Never place an empty pan on direct heat. Heat the pan slowly and control the heat at all times.
If using your pan in the oven never expose it to temperatures higher than 250ºC for more than 10 minutes.
Use only metal or wooden utensils, never plastic.
Note that these pans reach higher temperatures than other pans, while in use the entire pan is hot.
Wash your pan in warm water, soaking if need be to soften baked-on food. (Avoid the use of detergents)
Dry thoroughly, either by hand or in a warm oven and then wipe a very thin layer of vegetable oil (not olive oil) over the pan with a paper towel. In humid climates, we recommend drying in the oven.
Wrap in paper, place in a plastic bag and store away from moisture.
