HOW TO MAKE ANY PAELLA ON YOUR BACK YARD? WHAT EQUIPMENT DO YOU NEED TO MAKE A PAELLA? HOW IS ITS ASSEMBLY? IS IT EXPENSIVE? EASY, FAST, CLEAN AND ECONOMIC WAY
1.- Cooking equipment:
We have three equipment options to make a original paella:
a) We can used with a fire protected with a building called “paellero”, it’s the most comfortable and expensive too.
c) gas burner and Tripod Stand:
This system is the easiest, economical, fast and clean that exists to make the original paella, besides, it also disassembles and stores anywhere, there are many other methods even better (with wood for example) but they will need constructions more expensive and more space-consuming. Let’s see keys and how easy and fast it’s the assemblage, in less than five minutes we’ll be ready to amaze friends and strangers with the show which suppose to prepare and delight the most demanding palates.
Equipment price: less than $100
2.- Types Paella Pans:
Main types paella pans:
Polished Carbon Steel Paella Pans:
This is the classic paella pan, and the one used by professional paella maestros. the steel is not surface protected require a little more care than other types of paella pans in order to prevent them from oxidising , are suitable for gas hobs, open fires, and oven. Typically the convex base would make them not so suitable for flat electric or induction stove tops.
Enamelled Steel Paella Pans
It’s still quite traditional and is much easier to look after than a carbon steel pan because the enamel protects the surface from rust. Enamelled steel pans tend to be a little less durable though because the enamel chips easily if banged or bumped around. The enamelled steel pan is similarly suited for all types of heat sources except for flat electric or induction stove tops.
In a few seconds the burner will be connected to our cylinder, Firstly we introduce burner’s pinneapple onto the top of the butane cylinder, Put pressure on the lower ring up to you hear “click”. Then we open the stopcock to supply gas to our burner
One of the keys to the paella is the uniformity of the fire, these diffusers are the perfect tool, like paella different diameters exist, this one (40cm-15.6″) is a perfect size for domestic environment. You can cook small paellas lighting only internal ring or large paellas (up to 25-30 people) with both rings on.
For security reasons we always first turn on internal ring, that is, open gas internal ring, turn on internal ring, open gas external ring and turn on external ring.
There are other systems like legs, but this tripod is sturdy, adaptable to several burners and especially it’s the key to level perfectly our paella, paella bad leveled it’s prelude get failure.
Thread 1, let it shorten or lengthen the diameter of our tripod that allows you to use different sizes of burners
Thread 2 is essential to increase or decrease each one of the legs and so level our paella. For it, put a little oil in the paella that should be centered on the same.
