The pan has a range of servings depending on whether you want a thin or thick layer of rice. While you can serve more people with a thicker layer, we prefer a thinner layer for the best flavor
Serves 150 to 200 people. This size is not for the faint of heart but it's guaranteed to turn heads and draw a crowd. We will rent this pan for special events if you're not yet ready to invest in full-time ownership. This pan is too large to ship by standard carriers, so please contact us for shipping rates.
The pan is made of carbon steel (aka polished steel, or acero pulido), which is ideal for paella since it conducts heat quickly and evenly. The pan is thin but quite rigid and durable. Carbon steel is the traditional material for paella, and some paella devotees feel that it enhances the flavor. As with any raw steel pan, it requires some care: you must dry the pan right after washing it and then rub the inside with a little vegetable oil to prevent rusting. If the pan does rust, a few passes with steel wool takes it right off.
