We use these incredible dishes for our own Fishers seafood paella – this high-quality, classic paella pan has a large, flat 26cm-diameter base which means the rice spreads into a thin layer, allowing it to cook evenly and absorb stock at a steady rate.
Unlike risottos, this traditional Spanish dish from Valencia shouldn’t be stirred continuously, so the thin base helps achieve the perfect ‘socarrat’ (crispy bottom), creating the toasted caramel flavours of an authentic paella. The dimpled steel allows the pan to sit on a high heat without warping. Also use the pan for large Spanish omelettes, frittatas or even full English breakfasts.
This paella pan is enamelled with a coating of vitreo-ceramic, protecting the pan from rust. The enamel also prevents food sticking – try to avoid using sharp utensils to preserve the pan’s non-stick qualities.
This pan is not suitable for using on an induction hob.
