You don't have to use a Spanish pan to make authentic paella, but it doesn't hurt. Made in Spain from durable Spanish carbon steel, this 23-5/8" enameled paella pan will give you a leg up on producing terrific, authentic paella. And that's not all you can cook in it. Great for roasting meat or making a stir-fry, the enameled pan resists rust and provides a natural non-stick surface for easy release and quick clean-up. The enamel is highly resistant to chips, scratches or peeling, even when you use metal utensils. The durable carbon steel construction heats quickly and evenly, and retains heat longer than other materials, but should be hand-washed. Two riveted heat-resistant handles make maneuvering and transporting this pan easy. A great pan for stovetop, oven or grill, the 23-5/8" paella pan is approximately 2-13/16" deep.
