Home > Paella Pans > Polished Steel Paella Pans
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 open fires or a Paella Gas burner.
Using your pan for the first time
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 thin 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 roll.
Care during use
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.
Cleaning & storage
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.
Great company service - not pushy, just good plain advice re size of pan etc. Delivery very quick and I was thrilled with the pan quality and such good value. Muchas gracias!

Yea. Happy with the new pan and the service I have been given by the Paella Company. We have now got 5 of these pans ranging from 300mm to 800mm. Brilliant for all sorts of cooking but best used over an open fire with friends in the woods.
Bought this for a family party we are having soon as we thought we would make paella. Initially looked on a few websites but when we saw the prices in thepaellacompany.co.uk when knew we had to try it. Pan arrived next day in a time slot provided to us by email and we were blown away by the quality. Thank you so much, we will definitely be buying from you again and telling others to.
