Carbon steel requires slightly more maintenance than enamelled steel or stainless steel, but is the authentic cooking pan for Spanish paella. The pan is slightly convex at the bottom making it perfectly suitable for gas hob, open fire, or oven; but not so suitable for induction or flat electric stovetop.
The thin carbon steel pan conducts heat instantaneously to the paella, and the dimpling allows texturing of the rice when cooking. The pan is rigid and durable and will last a long time in your kitchen. A real paella maestro will even tell you that the steel itself imparts its own flavour to the bottom of the rice. When it comes to cooking paella, Garcima is the authentic Spanish brand.
Garcima is the premiere Spanish cookware brand, with experience since 1940 in manufacturing high quality traditional cooking utensils including a huge range of paella pans. These pans are made in Spain not China, and are the genuine article. You won't be disappointed when you purchase a genuine Garcima paella pan.
Note : The paella pans are free shipping Australia only and do not ship to overseas addresses.
