Serves 12 to 20 people. The pan is made of carbon steel (aka
polished steel, or acero pulido), which is ideal for paella since
it conducts heat quickly and evenly. The pan is thin but quite
rigid and durable, with a hammered dimpled bottom. The handles
are made of steel and painted red. Carbon steel is the
traditional material for paella, and some paella devotees feel
that it enhances flavor. As with any raw steel pan, it requires
some care: you must dry the pan right after washing it and then
rub the inside with a little vegetable oil to prevent rusting. If
the pan does rust, a few passes with steel wool takes it right
off. Top diameter of the pan (rim-to-rim) is 25 7/8 inches. Top
diameter of the pan with handles is 32 ½ inches. Bottom diameter
of the pan is 23 ½ inches
