Care and Use of Paella Pan:
  • First time use: Boil water in the receptacle.
  • Wash with water and detergent. Dry immediately. Never leave to air-dry.
  • The product is now ready to use; smear the interior with a light layer of oil to prepare it to better withstand the heat when cooking.

This pan will rust if it is not seasoned by rubbing some oil into it while it is hot after using it and before storing it. Treat it like a cast iron pan and this will last a long time. When mine rusted I was able to rub the rust away with kosher salt. I've kept it in my pantry ever since with a thin layer of oil on it.

with a 22'' eat more than 20
I just bought the 22"" paella pan to cook a paella for my friends. As they where 24 people, I cooked another 15"" paella. I can say that with some appetizers before the paella, they all ate with the 22"". Definetly, the 22"" is a good size for a big party

Nice Sized Pan
I received a free CharBroil paella burner for a review, (they call it their Multi-Cooker). It came with a small 16"" pan, but in order to use the second ring I needed a larger pan to test it with. The 22"" pan fits perfectly, and easily fed a crowd an authentic Valencian paella made with Judion Beans and Bomba rice. The next outdoor cook using this big pan was a Spanish chorizo and seafood paella! Indulged with the porrons, and everyone was happy! This pan is the real-deal, and made of steel that must be seasoned after each use, just like good cast iron cookware. Mine lives the the garage, hanging on the wall! It will last for generations if properly cared for. Now you don't have to ship one back during your next visit to Pamplona, just go buy it at Sur La Table

Paella and sangria party!
I have several of these in different sizes, and they cook just like the authentic paella pans in Spain...yes, you dry and oil them lightly, easy to do...The key thing that works so well is the heat distribution across the whole surface. I've used them on stovetop, and BBQ grill with equal success. I highly recommend, as you then bring the whole beautiful pan to the table to get ""oooo-aaahhhhh"" from your guests! Paella parties and sangria are now the summer tradition at our house

"Great pan, does what it needs to do!"
Relatives got me the 13.5"" version of this pan as a gift and I have used it about 4 times now. I have a small stovetop and this pan can fit over two burners. Mainly I have used it at the park on public bbqs, which do not have a large cook surface. The pan cooks paella like it should. As stated in the description, this pan is not non-stick and should be treated more like a cast iron pan. It will rust if you do not dry right after cleaning or you live in high humidity. I live in a low humidity place, so I can just dry it off and toss it in the cabinet and not worry. Rust easily comes off with a bit of salt, oil, and elbow grease..

This pan rust way too easily, even after following care instructions of hand wash, immediately drying, coating with oil and covering. I will be returning the product.

I also had the same rusting issue, but in my case it started happening even before the first use. Some people mentioned care instructions, but mine came with no information attached to it at all.
I am now stuck with a pan that is great in size and shape, but is all rusty inside and out.

Rusts if care instructions aren't followed
I, too, experienced the same problem another user mentioned and had my pan rust after the first use. My pan came as a gift and no care instructions were given so I washed and dried as normal and then experienced quite a bit of rust after. As others mention, the rust comes off with some work, but storing with a film of oil, wrapped in paper is simply not convenient or practical for me. I also had problems with food sticking to the bottom in spite of generous use of oil while cooking.

I would not recommend this product if you don't have the space to store it properly

This pan rusted after being hand washed. I am not sure if I would recommend buying it in the future. Good price for our needs, but I was upset the pan rusted and looked awful
