- Size - 18 inch/45 cm
This pan will not fit in a normal oven. We recommend ordering a paella burner and tripod as well.
Our Pata Negra pans are professional grade, double gauge steel. This helps distribute the heat evenly and stops warping that can occur with other pans. This pan can stand up to hundreds of uses!
This size pan is large enough for a paella for 8 people. It is the traditional carbon steel paella pan that Spaniards have used for centuries - except even more durable. The dimpled pan bottom distributes heat evenly.
All of our paella pans are made by a family in Valencia with over 50 years of experience in producing the finest cookware for paella.
As you cook with this paella pan it will become seasoned: changing color and absorbing flavors of each paella as you cook with it.
To care for the pan, wash it by hand and coat it with a a neutral oil like sunflower oil to stop rust. If it does rust, simply scrub it with steel wool.

"We already own the 28" Pata Negra pan for making large paellas over a wood fired pit at family gatherings. Because it worked so well, decided to purchase a second pan in the smaller size when we want to make smaller recipes of paella on the gas grill. "

"This 18 inch pan fit perfectly on top of my 22 inch WEBER Grill. The grill can be covered in the last few minutes of cooking so the rice can absorb the liquids, and also absorb the aromas of the hardwoods charcoal. Received plenty of complements with my Paella!! This pan will be an "heirloom.""
