Which paella is better and which one to choose?
Polished steel paella pan are more economical and more resisting to breaking. Also, since they are polished steel, they will need the usual maintenance these kinds of containers require (for more information on care and cleaning please see the "Care Instruction" tab).
Enamelled paella pan are coated with a black and white speckled enamel. This protective layer has several qualities:
- Enables us to use the container in the oven.
- Facilitates its maintenance and cleaning.
- Enables it to be dishwasher safe. Their only downside, is like all enamel ware, they are susceptible to being chipped if dropped or bashed.

Can I use a Paella Pan on my normal domestic gas hob?
Yes depending on the type of cooker you have, if you have a gas range cooker you can use your Paella pan on the range however please note the size of the Paella pan you are planning on using on your gas range. We wouldn’t recommend using anything above a 38 cm pan on your gas range at home as either will not fit or may mean you have to keep moving segments of the Paella pan over the heat in order to cook the dish properly. Original Paella would always recommend that you purchase a Paella gas burner for your new Paella pan in order to provide adequate heat distribution to the dish. If you have an electric/induction or AGA cooker please see our induction paella pans as these have a flat thick sandwich bottom which is suitable for these types of cookers.
What size of paella pan do I need?
We have all sizes of paella pans from 22 cm up to 130 cm wide. The paella pan you need depends on the number of diners. Each of our paella pans shows the number of portions, both starter and main.
You can also look at our table of paella pan sizes based in which amount of people you are going to cook here:

What differences are there between domestic and professional gas burners?
The domestic paella gas burner is the classic, resistant and functional burner. Approved for outdoor use only, it has the vertical gas outlet on the upper part of the tube. It is available in a wide range of sizes. There are specific models for natural gas and for a butane/propane tank.
Professional paella gas burners include a safety valve in each ring (thermocouple), which makes them suitable for use in closed or semi-closed spaces.

What size burner do I need?
We have included in the description of each burner the range of paella pans it can accommodate. In any case, as a general rule it is a good idea to know that the base of the paella pan must exceed the diameter of the ring by 6-10 cm so that, as they say, it envelopes the container without burning the sides and the handle.

What kind of rice is better?
It is a question whose answer is complex to the extent that the rice will be better depending on the use to which we are going to destine, that is, a recipe for a dry rice or paella is not the same as a soup rice or a creamy rice and Therefore, there are varieties that are more suitable for one type of rice or another, the same thing also happens when with the time that passes from preparation to consumption, that is, a paella that we cook and we put at the moment is made at home with a rice to a paella in processes such as a restaurant menu that is prepared at twelve o'clock and served until three o'clock or in a catering or in a delivery or a takeaway where time passes from its preparation to its service.
