The secret to a great paella is in the right pan - wide, round and shallow. The crowning touch is serving it warm with a dramatic reveal. Dinner guests will swoon as you lift the paella pan lid inaugurating your Spanish feast.
Paella is traditionally served right from the pan to preserve the texture of the rice and the flavor of its savory companions. A proper paella pan lid will keep the dish warm and create a sensual experience as wafting aromas of the golden rice and enticing ingredients tempt tablemates’ taste buds before they even take their first bite.
Preparing paella that is both beautiful and delicious is surprisingly simple. Use premium rice flavored with broth and seasoned with saffron and other spices, and add fresh meats and vegetables. There are literally hundreds of recipes for this traditional Spanish dish that may contain any combination of chicken, pork, shellfish, fish, eel, squid, beans, peas, artichokes, peppers and more. Once removed from the stove, the paella should sit covered with the lid for about 15 minutes to finish cooking and allow the rice to fully absorb the tastes of the broth and other ingredients, sealing in the heat and flavor.
These durable, stainless steel lids are produced by a third generation company started in 1940, which got its start making kitchen utensils such as ladles, cooking tripods and tongs. These were the beginnings of a tradition to last over three generations. The first paella pans were created in the 1950s and the family continues to produce all of their pans in Valencia, the birthplace of paella.
This stainless steel paella pan lid is ideal for a variety of cuisine. It may be used with all different types of cook tops. The lid is slightly larger than a 15 inch pan, allowing for full coverage. Wash by hand with a non-abrasive cloth.
