Paella pans are a crucial kitchen tool for restaurants that specialize in Spanish cuisine. These unique pans are specifically designed to cook the traditional Spanish dish, paella. The dish is prepared by sautéing various ingredients such as chicken, seafood, and vegetables in a large shallow pan before adding the rice and broth. Paella pans come in different sizes and materials such as carbon steel or stainless steel, but the most important feature is their large size and wide surface area which allows for the even distribution of heat. Restaurants invest in high-quality paella pans to ensure that they can cook large portions of this iconic Spanish dish to perfection every time.
