Pata Negra

These pans are similar to our traditional carbon steel pans except that these are made from an extra-thick and heavy-duty grade of carbon steel (aka polished steel, or acero pulido. They're 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 requires 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.

If you're not sure which size pan is the right one for you, review Choosing the Right Paella Pan Size for guidance. See Comparing Paella Pan Styles for a comparison table showing the differences in each material. To keep your pan looking its best, please see our Paella Pan Care & Maintenance Guide.

Pan size refers to the top diameter, measured from rim to rim. The cm measurement is the more accurate; we round to the nearest inch.
The pan has a range of servings depending on whether you want a thinner or thicker layer of rice. You can serve more people with more rice, but we prefer using less rice as it gives better flavor.
