Suitable for all types of heating sources including electric, gas, glass, induction, oven and campfire. It performs extremely well over open flame. The 15-inch Seasoned Steel Skillet is a great choice for cooking for a large group whether in the dining room or around the campfire. It's also great for Paellas, a Spanish dish prepared by simmering together chicken, seafood, rice, vegetables, and saffron and other seasonings. Paella is usually cooked in the open air over a hot wood fire so that the dish can be infused with the smoke flavor. After cooking, clean with a stiff nylon brush and hot water.
