The Traditional Spanish paella pan is excellent for cooking Mediterranean style rice: loose grain and thin layer. Made of carbon steel allows conducting heat quickly and evenly. The wide and shallow pan ensures rice cooks in a thin layer. Its size is perfect for 40-50 in. servings and can also be used as an everyday extra-large fry pan. Suitable for gas, charcoal and electric stoves. This pan needs to be seasoned: wash it by hand, dry it immediately, and then season it with a light film of oil to avoid rust. It includes instructions manual and recipe book allowing you to make the most popular Spanish paella.
