Designed specifically for creating delicious rice dish combinations, this 24 inch authentic paella pan from Magefesa was made in Spain. Paella, a traditional rice dish that originated in Valencia, Spain, needs to be cooked in a shallow pan in order to get the most flavorful, authentic taste. This skillet, otherwise known as a paellera, is the ideal shallow pan for cooking your favorite type of paella for serving 15 to 25 people. Whether you're making seafood, chicken, or vegetarian paella in this skillet, it's the ideal pan for creating your own version of the Valencian rice dish. The shallow paella pan is suitable for use in heat from alimentary firewood, gas, and the oven. The dimpled base allows the oil to collect in the center of the skillet pan, and dual riveted handles offer comfortable, secure handling. It's designed to provide fast and even heat distribution for cooking food items like rice quickly and evenly. The carbon steel construction ensures long life, durability, and it's also easy to clean.
