Rice and Grains

Serve up delicious rice and grains with our food selection items and cook tools that are designed to help you get dinner on the table in a hurry or when planning a fancy event. At Williams-Sonoma, we know that life gets busy sometimes, so we’ve done the hard work for you by combining ingredients to make rice and grain dishes a piece of cake. Our rice and grain jars feature delightful ingredients for recipes including risotto and paella with seafood, vegetarian and truffle flavors. Empty the rice and grains into baking dishes and add stock to simmer in the oven or one-pot cooker for a delicious meal.

Making risotto is a breeze with our flavorful kits that you can also cook directly on the stove top in fry pans and skillets. If you have a frying pan with a large surface area, make sure to prepare extra stock as larger pans will increase evaporation. Risotto is a versatile dish that can also be cooked on the stovetop with sauciers as well as in the oven if you need to focus on preparing other dishes for large gatherings. One of the most useful tools when making risotto is a quality ladle. Because you’ll be adding stock constantly as you stir, you’ll want a ladle that features a solid yet comfortable grip. If you have nonstick cookware, opt for silicone or plastic ladles to protect your pans from scratches. Wooden ladles offer excellent grip and doubles as a serving spoon that pairs well with rustic designs once your risotto is ready to serve. Dress things up a bit with a copper ladle that features a glimmering appearance that heats evenly and won’t affect the temperature of even the largest batches of risotto.

Our rice and grains also include delightful paella mixes that you can whip up using paella pans and tagines. Paella pans are designed to create a crisp layer of toasted rice at the bottom, which is the hallmark of a good Spanish paella. Opt for enameled cast iron that cooks paella to perfection on the stovetop or outdoor grill, then stays warm for serving at the table. Copper and stainless-steel paella pans produce an exceptional infusion of flavor with superior heat conductivity for that crispy layer.

Our rice and grain offerings aren’t just for quick meals for busy people. You can use our rice and grains to create your own signature dishes by adding your favorite ingredients whether you’re entertaining friends and family for a special occasion or just making a delightful meal for your family. Our food mills and ricers make it easy for you to add delicious flavors while straining out fibers, seeds and skins. Pair your risotto with lemon zest or add potatoes, mushrooms or fresh green peas for a rich taste the whole family will love.

Take flavor to the next level with our spice and nut tools that add seasoning to our already delicious rice and grains. Opt for an electric spice and nut grinder to quickly grind up everything from anise to nutmeg. You can even give dinner guests the opportunity to customize their risotto and paella dishes with wooden hand grinders that look great on your tabletop next to paella pans. Infuse our rice and grains with extra flavor by adding a mulling spice ball to your vegetable and chicken broth while keeping stems and leaves from entering the broth. Whether you want a premade meal that just needs added water or a basic dish that you can dress up, you’ll find what you need with our rice and grains.
