Polished steel paella pans are the most traditional paella pans found in Spain. They are simple, extremely robust and inexpensive. They are made of laminated polished steel an as such, simply need to be sealed with a thin coating of cooking oil after being cleaned as with a wok or cast iron griddle. For more information on care and cleaning please see the "Care Instruction" tab.
The base of these paella pans is slightly dished allowing the oil to collect in the centre when first frying your ingredients. This means they are suitable to be used on gas hobs, open fires or a Paella Gas burner. If you need to cook on an electric, halogen, induction hob or AGA, please see our range of specialist flat bottomed paella pans.
Before you can enjoy your new pan for the first time you will need to remove the label and the thin, protective coat of varnish. The easiest way to do this is to slightly heat the pan under the label an it should then peel off very easily. Now simply scrub the pan with any type of pan scourer with hot soapy water to remove the varnish.
Dry the pan immediately and thoroughly. The pan now needs to be sealed with a coating of oil. Simply pour a little cooking oil in the pan and wipe all over with a piece of kitchen roll. Any excess oil can be wiped off with another piece of kitchen oil.
Traditional Polished Steel Paella Pans are designed for use with gas or a direct flame. (We do also have a range of flat based paella pans that can also be used on induction, electric & AGA hobs). Never place an empty pan on a direct heat. Heat your pan slowly and control the heat at all times. Polished steel paella pans are not suitable for use in ovens or microwaves. Use only metal or wooden utensils and never plastic as these pans (including the handles) get extremely hot.
After using your pan soak as required and then clean thoroughly using a scouring pad if necessary. Dry the pan immediately and never allow the pan to air dry after washing. As with the new pan simply seal the pan with some cooking oil and wipe over with kitchen roll.Finally store your pan in a dry place.
You may also find that your pan takes on a “seasoned” appearance – do not worry this is perfectly normal.

Son-in-law and grandson made a splendid paella, though we did argue a little. Left with question how to make it yellower. Asked voice online which explained how to get yellow diarrhoeia

Try the Carmencita Spices - They are the sccepted cheat !
This was a very useful extra. We used the 55cm pan on the paella burner to do the mixed seafood/meat paella and used the 34cm on the hob indoors to do a meat-only one for those who don't do fish. It worked extremely well.

I was bought this for a Father's Day present ( I have to say at my request ) as I have been after one for some time. Delivery was very prompt just a couple of days, I had thought of getting a larger pan but am glad I went for the 34cm as this fits on a standard cooker very well. I have now used my new pan with great success , with a recipe found on the paella company web site brilliant. Thank you very much.
