In stock, immediate despatch
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.

I recently purchased the Tabarca garden set which comes with a 50cm pan. Decided to have a Spanish themed summer party. After checking the guest list realised that I needed a bigger pan! One quick email and the pan was here in no time. The weather was great and the 'paella was to die for' according to the guests. Probably because I used your chicken and chorizo paella recipe! Pan has cleaned up perfectly and is ready for the next time. Thank you for your excellent service and such good products. Lots of interest was expressed about the burner etc. and I was happy to point them in the direction of your website.
