How To Use A Chafer

How To Use A Chafer

And now to take a look at how we’re going to use the chafer. The first thing you’re going to do once you have it set up and your water pan in your frame is you’re going to fill the water pan with about 1 inch of very hot tap water. This will allow the temperature to come up a lot quicker. So once you do that, cover the chafer with the lid. Open up your fuel cell and place it in your fuel holder along with the fuel holder cover, which you should have open. Don’t light this until you’ve placed the fuel cell underneath the chafer. Then you can light it with a long-tipped lighter. Let it come up to temperature for about 20 minutes and then you’re ready for your food. The important thing about your food is that it has to be hot going in; a chafer is not designed to cook your food. It’s designed to keep it warm once it’s already cooked. I’m going to take the lid off, get my hot asparagus, and there we are. We’re ready to serve. Thank you for watching, and if you have any questions, please feel free to use our live chat button.

Watch as Steve demonstrates the proper way to use your chafer, from how much water you will need to when you should light the fuel. And remember, a chafer is only for keeping food warm, not for cooking it!
