If you have an unusual pan size, and would like to find out the capacity, measure the amount of water it takes to fill the pan. Then compare it with the pans above to determine the substitution. For your cake to rise evenly, you should only fill this pan to the half-way mark with batter. The baking time may change as well, so it is imperative that you keep a watchful eye on your cake, and check for doneness using your preferred method.

Paella Pans from Spain - pan sizes

HOW TO MEASURE THE PANS: The size refers to the diamater of the pan as measured across the top, and doesn’t include handles.

If you have a smooth-top electric stove: Paella pans have a slightly convex bottom, which makes them a little tricky to use on flat-top burners. The key is to start cooking the paella on the stovetop, and if the heat isn’t conducting well to all parts of the pan, transfer the paella to a hot (400F) oven to finish cooking. Or you can cook the paella in the oven right from the start.

10" (26 cm) carbon steel pan - Serves 1 to 2 people.
Just right for one person or two, if you’re serving a few side dishes. Fits perfectly over one small burner.

13" (32 cm) carbon steel pan - Serves 2 to 3 people.
Better for two than for three people, but if all parties restrain themselves just a bit, you can eke out that extra serving. Fits well over one burner.

13.5" (34 cm) carbon steel pan - Serves 2 to 3 people.
This is a good size for novice paella cooks. Fits well over most burners.

14" (36 cm) carbon steel pan - Serves 2 to 4 people.
Good for beginning paella cooks. Fits well over most large standard burners.

15" (38 cm) carbon steel pan - Serves 3 to 5 people.
A manageable size for beginning paella cooks. Fits well over most standard burners (or over two closely-spaced burners).

16" (40 cm) carbon steel pan - Serves 4 to 6 people.
A good middle-sized pan that fits well over one large stovetop burner or straddles two burners that are closely spaced.

17" (43 cm) carbon steel pan - Serves 5 to 7 people.
Fits well over one large stovetop burner or straddles two burners that are closely spaced.

18" (46 cm) carbon steel pan - Serves 6 to 8 people.
This pan will fit over two standard burners.

20" (50 cm) carbon steel pan - Serves 7 to 10 people.
Fits over two standard burners.

22" (55 cm) carbon steel pan - Serves 9 to 12 people.
This pan fits over a 23-inch Weber kettle grill. A stovetop with four closely-spaced burners can usually accommodate it as well.

24" (60 cm) carbon steel pan - Serves 10 to 16 people.
This pan size (and larger) needs a grill or one of our burners or else an outdoor fire underneath it. It is too large for most residential stovetops.

26" (65 cm) carbon steel pan - Serves 12 to 20 people.
This is what a very large Spanish family would use when they gather for their weekly Sunday paella. This size is for serious paella cooks; measure 26 inches with a yardstick.

28" (70 cm) carbon steel pan - Serves 15 to 35 people.
A step up from the 26-inch pan, this pan also needs a large heat source underneath it.

31" (80 cm) carbon steel pan - Serves 20 to 40 people.
This pan is so big that you could use it as a toboggan in winter. Before purchasing, please measure 31 inches to be sure you know what you’re getting into. For this size pan and larger, you will need a professional stove, an extra large outdoor grill, or a campfire to get heat under the whole pan.

35" (90 cm) carbon steel pan - Serves 40 to 70 people.
This pan is nearly 3 feet in diameter and not for the faint of heart. When not being used for paella, you can use it as a coffee table - LOL!

40" (100 cm) carbon steel pan - Serves 70 to 100 people.

45" (115 cm) carbon steel pan - Serves 100 to 140 people.

52" (130 cm) carbon steel pan - Serves 150 to 200 people.

If I may add to this a couple more that are still used here in places.

1 fluid ounce = 28.35 ml

1 pint = 0.567 litres

1 quart = 1.136 litres

1 gallon = 4.54 litres

1/4 litre = 8.8 fluid ounces

1/2 litre = 17.6 fluid ounces

1 litre = 1 pint 19.2 fluid ounces

5 litres = 1 gallon 16 fluid ounces

5 fluid ounces = 1 gill

2 gills = 1 cup

4 gills = 1 pint

20 fluid ounces = 1 pint

2 cups = 1 pint

2 pints = 1 quart

4 quarts = 1 gallon

8 pints equals 1 gallon

1 teaspoon = 0.21 fl.oz

3 teaspoons = 1 tablespoon

Gills and fl.oz, pints and quarts are still used by the old cooks when I am talking to them. And it seems right to me that I use the exact form they use…call me crazy lol
