Pata Negra is a professional quality paella pan made from an extra-thick and heavy-duty grade of carbon steel (aka polished steel, or acero pulido). It's a good choice for restaurant kitchens, or for home cooks who expect to give their pan a good workout. As with any carbon steel pans, these pans require a bit of care: you must dry the pan right after washing it and then rub the inside with a little vegetable oil to prevent rusting.
These discounted pans offer great value. Most have minor cosmetic flaws ranging from rivet marks on the metal to small imperfections on the handles. They are sold "as is" and are final sale.
