Garcima is the recognised world leader in the manufacture of the authentic Spanish induction Paella pan.
The Pata Negra induction paella pan is similar to our traditional carbon steel pans except that they are made from an extra-thick and heavy-duty grade of carbon steel (aka polished steel, or acero pulido.) They’re a good choice for restaurant kitchens, or for home cooks who expect to give their pan a good workout. Unlike the traditional steel paella pans, which have a slightly convex base, this one is suitable for induction cooktops, as well as gas, electric, open flame and charcoal grills.
As with any carbon steel pans, these pans requires a bit of care: you must dry the pan right after washing it and then rub the inside with a little vegetable oil to prevent rusting.

Please note: these Paella pans are authentic commercial pans, small scratches and minor blemishes are part of their character and are not flaws or defects.
Materials: These authentic paella pans are made with an extra-thick and heavy-duty grade of carbon steel. They are extremely durable but need to be dried and oiled as described below.
Care of pans: To season before first use, we recommend after boiling water, cleaning and oiling the pan, to put it on the heat. After a while take the pan off the heat and wipe the burnt oil off. We suggest doing this twice. This will seal the pan nicely and turn it a
dark colour. Being made from high carbon, these pans will rust if not dried immediately after washing and being lightly rubbed with vegetable oil prior to storage. If rusting does occur it can be easily removed by an abrasive cleaner.
Cookers: These can be used on induction cooktops, gas and electric cookers and can also be used on open flame and charcoal grills.
Lids: Like all authentic paella pans, these do not have lids and paella should never be covered while cooking. Once off the heat, you may cover to retain temperature and moisture.
