The Alzira Garden Paella Set is our premium offering for paella pans up to 55cm. This set is perfect for families serving up to 10 main course portions of paella. It is based on the 380mm independent dual ring paella gas burner from FlamesVLC. FlamesVLC, is a specialist paella gas burner manufacturer from Valencia. The build quality of this hand built gas burner is excellent employing FlamesVLC's patented "Optim" gas combustion method giving greater heat output.
Included in the Alzira Garden Paella Set is a unique heavy-duty and extremely stable fold-out tripod stand. It has been specifically developed by FlamesVLC for this gas burner. Our levelling feet have been so popular, that we have decided to add these as standard to the set.You can also select both the size and type of paella from either 50 or 55cm.
Additional smaller paella pans may be used using only the inner ring of the gas burner. These can range from 28cm through to 36cm
The paella set also includes a gas hose and clips. You will just need to choose a regulator for the appropriate gas bottle you want to use. (See gas & regulator guide for more information). The gas burner will run on both Propane & Butane.
** Important Note: We offer a service to crimp the regulator on the gas hose and burner. This is a very strong connection, but will not have been leak tested. As always, check for any gas leaks using soapy water around all connections before lighting.
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:
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.
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
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

Arrived ready to connect and get cooking, and really easy to do so.A great product, my only criticism being that it is really susceptible to even the slightest of breeze when on a low setting. It just needs a very sheltered area to operate in.

All paella burners suffer from this as the flame is small, but spread over the base of the pan.Try our Paella Burner Windskirts , that simply hang from the pan and allow you to cook in virtually all conditions ! -
Hello used our paella pan to make a vegetable curry for 16 people and it turned out really good. Now need to order the wind guard as had to keep relighting the burners as the wind was blowing them out.
Delivery was rapid and notifications plentiful. Pan arrived with damage to the enamel lining of the pan. Immediate dispatch of replacement that arrived as quickly as the original purchase. Cannot fault
Having recently been invited to a friend's home, where we were fed with a delicious paella, I decided to follow suit and buy the necessary kit. I was impressed with The Paella Company's website, especially the sections dealing with the history of the dish and recipes as well as the extensive range of items for sale. Clearly a company with a passion. Delivery was prompt and the omission of one of the items ordered was dealt with courteously and swiftly over the phone.
