Tips to keep in mind when you are going to buy a Paella pan

Ideal burner size for paella pan
The base of your Paella pan must be of a similar proportion to your kitchen or vitro, NEVER LESS, otherwise the rice will not cook properly. The central part of the rice will be correct but instead the rice on the sides will be hard.
Oven paella pan size
If you are going to use the paella pan in your oven, measure with the handles included and make sure it fits in your oven.
