The set comes with the 80cm Paella pan, the 600mm indoor/outdoor complaint gas burner, a very sturdy folding tripod stand, gas hose & propane regulator.
The gas burner in this set is from FlamesVLC, a specialist paella gas burner manufacturer from Valencia. Their patented pilot system means that once one ring has been lit, any of the rings will automatically re-light once being turned off and back on again. The flame cutoff valve will not allow gas to flow unless the gas burner has been lit and will automatically cut the gas supply should all flames be extinguished.
This makes the gas burner complaint for all indoor and outdoor environments.
We will also include a listing in our Website catering & hire directory if you want, so customers wanting to find paella caterers or hire facilities in your area will easily find your details.
This size is extremely popular with caterers of all types giving up to about 40 servings (tapas size)
The burners will run on both Propane & Butane and have been fully adjusted to UK gas pressures and is fully CE certified
What type of Paella Gas burner do I need ?
Our range of paella gas burners are available with or without gas cut-off valves. If you plan to use the burner totally outside, in what is called a "blue sky" environment (that's assuming we get any blue sky !!), then the normal paella burner may suffice (Classic or Premium). If your cooking is either enclosed or semi enclosed (which includes gazebos, marquees or indoors), then a paella burner with FSD's (Flame Supervision Device) is certainly required. Gas burners with FSD's have one or multiple thermocouple detectors on the gas rings. The gas will not be allowed to flow unless there is a flame keeping this thermocouple hot. If for any reason the flame is extinguished then, as soon as the thermocouple cools down, the gas supply will be automatically shut off.
FSD compliant gas burners are also often a requirement for many councils, market or event organisers even if the gas burners are to be used fully outside. Therefore if you plan to cater at different events or markets it would be much safer (in terms of complying with any local regulations) to select a burner or cooking set with a flame failure gas burner.
Please Note: All our Catering paella pans, gas burners & cooking sets have been priced for commercial trade customers. However, we are able to offer an additional 3%, 5% or 7% discount for all orders totalling over £1,000, £2,500 & £4,000 ex VAT respectively.
Polished Steel & Enamelled Steel Paella Pan Serving & Dimension Information
Paella Pans are tradionally described by the size of their top diameter. The base is somewhat smaller due to the sloping sides of a traditional paella pan. When cooking paella it is important to choose the right size pan to keep the paella thin. The most common mistake in cooking paella is to overfill the pan.
We have included some information for choosing the size of paella pan:
- Main vs Tapas Portions
Each pan is marked by the manufacturer for the number of "Raciones" it will serve. This is best described as a "tapas" size portion. It is slightly strange as in Spain you would never see a paella pan being used to serve these numbers of portions. For example a 50cm pan is described as serving 14 portions, but in practice it will be used for about 7 people (perhaps even less). However the sizing is used by all the pan manufacturers in Spain, so it isn't going to change. Therefor we have added a column for Main course size servings, that give a better impression of the pan capacity.
- Minimum amounts for each size pan
It is always better to use have less in the pan than the maximum number of main course portions. A thin paella (up to a depth of about 1cm) will cook and taste better than an overfilled pan. As a general rule of thumb, if you take half (or a little more) the value of tapas portions, that would be approximately the minimum amount of main course portions the pan can be used for. eg for a 50cm Pan max main course portions is about 8, min would be 14/2 so 7 or or 6
- Cooking on a gas hob
It is important to try and get an even cooking heat as possible. This becomes very neccessary in the later stages of cooking paella when the rice is cooking. The flame does not need to cover the whole base of the pan, but conversely you dont want a small concentrated heat in the centre. In practice a gas hob can cook up to about a 36cm (maybe a 38cm) pan depending on the size of the gas burners. It is possible to use larger pans on agas hob if they can span multiple gas burners. However this will mean moving the pan (not stirring the paella !) around while the rice is cooking.
Remember normal paella pans are for gas or open fire only. If you are cooking on electric or AGA's then you will need one of our flat-bottomed paella pans
