I recently was at TJ Maxx and impulsively bought a paella pan, as it was inexpensive and I've been wanting one for some time. The label lists, variously, "La Ideal, Garcima"; I'm not certain which is the brand name as most of the text is in Spanish. It does say made in Spain. The size is listed as 42 cms.
I'm curious about two things,
1) Is this a good brand (And does brand really even matter for this application)?
2) Is this a good size to have chosen? I'd like to be able to make larger amounts for hosting, but I probably won't ALWAYS want to make a larger amount. My assumption was if you have a bigger pan you can use it to make a smaller quantity if you want to. Is this correct?
Any advice would be appreciated.
