If you find yourself needing to cook for more than two people, a jumbo pan can really come in handy. Take a very popular Spanish dish like Paella. With all the ingredients needed to go into that dish, a jumbo frying pan is a definite must have depending on how many there are going to be for dinner. And if you have one that can go from the top stove into the oven without damage, then all the better.
