This copper paella pan is a beautiful thing – whether for serving paella, or hanging on your kitchen wall. Completely made by hand in Michoacan, Mexico, this pan adds a touch of rustic elegance when serving paella. But beyond that, copper paella pans are the ideal way to prepare great paella.
Copper is an excellent conductor, and copper paella pans transfer heat so well that you can heat your paella at a lower temperature and preserve some of the subtle flavors of your broth and the ingredients.
Our paella pans are made by a small workshop in Santa Clara Del Cobre, Michoacan, Mexico. Each pan is carefully hammered by hand, with sturdy stainless handles attached to each side.
The heavy gauge copper (14 gauge, 2 mm) is lined with tin for the best combination of heat conduction and a non-reactive cooking surface. Your copper pan is oven safe, and can be used on gas and electric cooking surfaces.
We searched for copper paella pans in Spain and could not find a any of quality. We were excited to find this workshop in Mexico that supports artisan traditions that nurture the local community.
Your copper paella pan does not need to be seasoned, simply wash with soapy water before first use. Use only wood or plastic cooking spoons to avoid scratching the paella pan. Always wash by hand after each use and dry thoroughly. Copper does tend to tarnish, so you will need to use copper polish to restore the original shine occasionally. Made in Mexico.
