This paella pan has a dazzling mirror finish that makes a great first impression, but it's also very functional. Made from high-quality 18/8 stainless steel with gold handles, the pan is sturdy and rigid, with the classic dimpled bottom. Be aware that the pan is made of a thin, single ply metal, so it is not meant for high-heat sauteing but rather for cooking rice dishes; it will overheat if left over a direct flame without food in it. It's maintenance free, with no seasoning or special cleaning required. And it makes wonderful paella. It's also a great choice for people who like to keep their pans on display. Hang one of these pans from your pot rack and it will be the centerpiece of your kitchen. It also makes a singular and memorable gift.
