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: The authentic paella pans are made of thin high carbon steel which are designed to respond very quickly to changes in heat. 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: All high carbon pans can be used on gas and electric cookers and can also be used on open flame and charcoal grills. Being slightly convex, paella pans are not great on induction or flat ceramic cook tops. For induction cooktops see the Garcima Pata Negra Induction Paella Pan 34cm
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.
