Paella World is one of the UK's leading importers of paella pans and Spanish cookware and ingredients. Some may even be unsure what exactly a paella pan is. Well I'll tell you - it's a specially made piece of cookery equipment which is slightly dimpled in the middle allowing the oil to collect when first frying your raw ingredients but is large enough to add your paella rice along with large quantities of water, allowing your rice to cook thoroughly. Of course it doesn't just have to be used to cook rice in. Many of our customers have used their paella pan to cook chilli, Bolognese, curries and even burgers - as we have seen with the many pictures we have received from our happy customers over the years. Some of our customers even use their large paella pan for general cooking on their stove at home taking advantage of the versitility that our products have to offer. All of our pans are manufactured in Valencia, Spain; the home of paella. They are made by a company called Vaello Campos who are one of the leading suppliers of paella pans in Spain and we import directly from them to the UK.
What size pan do I need?
We have a handy size guide on each products page giving you an idea of how many portions a giant paella pan will serve, however these are based on the typical Spanish-style portions and not our British 'plate full' of paella. If you cannot decide which size of pan to buy then please call us on 0114 287 3891 and we will be able to provide you with more information of our experience with the servings that our cooking equipment can offer.
