Paella is Spain’s national dish. To make a mouth watering Paella at home you need the right Paella Pan. Paella pans are usually a large carbon steel pan that offers a wide and flat cooking surface with shallow sides which encourage the formation of Soccarat. Soccarat is the delicious caramelized crust for which paella is famous. The paella pan distributes heat evenly, and, if you purchased an unseasoned pan it will becomes naturally seasoned with continued use. Le Creuset have two good quality options a toughened non stick paella pan which will be non stick from the start or else a cast iron paella pan which will need to become seasoned to become non stick over time.
