This is the perfect paella starter kit! We’ve travelled to Spain several times and we just love Paella. A beautiful Paella is a fantastic communal casual dining meal. The delivery of a steaming hot Paella to the table, still in its pan and ready to be served always creates excitement among our guests!
It’s not hard to make one and our Perfect Paella Starter Kit is just the thing to get you started. We’ve included a few of the ingredients that are a little more specialised and perhaps not already in your pantry PLUS a quality genuine Spanish steel Paella pan, if you choose one. The remaining ingredients are all most likely already in your pantry, or readily available at your supermarket, and you’ll just need to add your meat and seafood. To top it off we’ll add Celine’s own Perfect Paella Recipe – you can’t go wrong!
Try a home made Paella soon – you won’t regret the joy it brings!

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 boiling water in it. Then clean and oil the pan and return it to 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.
