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 35-1/2" polished 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 polished carbon steel pan resists rust and provides a natural non-stick surface for easy release and quick clean-up. The durable carbon steel construction heats quickly and evenly, and retains heat longer than other materials, but should be hand-washed. Four riveted heat-resistant handles make maneuvering and transporting this pan easy. A great pan for stovetop, oven or grill, the 35-1/2" paella pan is approximately 2-13/16" deep.
