Classic Chafers

Classic Chafers

Our popular Choice brand classic chafers give you a classic upgrade to a standard economy chafer. Whether your event is a wedding, an anniversary or a graduation, these chafers will give you the perfect look for less. Hi, I’m Steve Ziegler, Product Expert at the WEBstaurantstore. The thing that sets these classic chafers apart from your standard economy chafer are these ornate handles. You can see this nice one on the top of the dome here but in addition, the ones on the side are cool touch wooden handles which makes it really easy if you need to carry these around a bit. They also come complete with water pans and food pans and you can see with this round one, the food pan is extra deep which would allow you to use this for soups as well; it comes in handy for that type of application. All of these chafers also come with your fuel cell holders as well which is also a nice, handy feature. Of course, your full-size chafer will come with two of those. But these are complete kits and you can see when they are together they look great and they will fit in any application. In addition to these chafers, we also sell chafing fuel; we sell the polishing clothes; we sell the long tip lighters and we also have any type of buffet utensil you could possibly need. Please, feel free if you have any questions to use our live chat button. Thank you for watching.

Choice Chafer Fuel

Choice Chafer Fuel

Whether you're catering a banquet, wedding, bridal shower, or other special event, we have the best selection of chafers and accessories at the best prices. My name is Matt Schuler, product expert and corporate chef. Today I am going to show you why Choice brand chafing fuels should be your #1 Choice for chafing fuel. Our buying power and skilled purchasing department allow us to keep our pricing incredibly low without sacrificing quality. We offer 3 different types of chafing fuels by Choice. 2 hour, 4 hour, or 6 hour(show pic of 3 cans) Of these three products, you will need to choose which fuel source best fits your application: wick fuel or gel fuel. Choice chafer gel fuel is the hottest and longest burning ethanol fuel on the market! Made from 200 proof gelled ethanol and capable of producing 1630 BTU's per hour, its gelled formula provides a higher heat output than conventional wick fuels and allows for maximum burn time. It is also easy to light, odorless, and burns clean. It delivers high-quality heat that burns hotter, longer, and safer than comparable fuels. Choice Gel fuel is offered in a 2 hour burn time. While Choice wick fuel is offered in 4 & 6 hour burn times. Although the 2 hr gel fuel offers to the lowest cost per can, the best value in terms of burn time & cost/hour is the 6 hour wick fuel. Because our wick fuel offers a convenient screw on lid, you can reuse the fuel to get the full 6 hours of usage out of it. If safety, flexibility and cost per hour are what you are looking for, then Choice wick chafer fuel is your brand. Our 6 hour wick fuel costs 18 cents/hour as compared to 24 cents/hour for the 4 hour wick fuel and 26 cents/hour for the two hour gel fuel. Its wick design and diethylene glycol fuel promote safe burning and help to keep the can cool to the touch even during use, while still providing a consistent, long-lasting flame. Even when spilled the liquid does not burn! These Choice fuels are also eco-friendly! Each can is made from recyclable aluminum, and the ethanol is produced using natural and recycled raw materials, resulting in a high-performance chafer fuel that is organic, biodegradable, 100% recyclable and made in the USA. Choice chafer gel and wick fuels are both great product, but here is a comparison to make your decision easier. Offered in a 2 hour burn time, Choice Gel fuels burn the hottest, are the least expensive and are the best option for chafers with low-resting water pans. On the other hand, Choice chafer wick fuels are available in both a 4 and 6 hour burn time, burn clean diethylene glycol, feature a resealable lid to get the maximum burn time and are cool to the touch. In addition, you don’t have to worry about spilled liquid because any spilled wick fuel won’t ignite. Check out our burn time comparison sheet, cost per hour chart, as well as the MSDS sheet, and our chafing fuel buying guide on our product page. (Show screen shot of product page/comparison chart/cost per hour chart). We also have a chafer fuel savings calculator where you can plug in the amount of fuel used per week and see how much savings you will have by switching to 6 hour Choice brand wick fuel. These charts will help you make a better buying decision! As always, click on the chat button for further questions regarding Choice brand chafing fuels. We hope this video helped you make the right “choice” for your foodservice application!!

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!

Overall User Rating: Choice 4 Qt. Classic Half-Size Chafer ( 4.7 stars from 12 reviews )

    I bought this to go with my 8 quart chafing dish for frys. I wanted to have both seasoned frys and regular salted frys. I bought two quarter sized 2 1/2" deep inserts. They do not fit. The water pan is slanted inward and the food pans will not seat correctly. I compared the half size food pan that came with this chafing dish and it too is slanted. It will not nest with any other half size food pan. I have contacted customer service. They are working on it.

    I purchased 3 different sizes of these chafing dishes and used all of them during our reception. It made for a lovely presentation and allowed flexibility for our smaller reception. We could refill the 4qt. more often and it kept the food hot and fresh.

    Bought this dish to use at weddings and showers. It has a very pretty look, very dainty and elegant. The outside makes for easy clean up, unlike silver.

    I use this whenever I want to place my dinner rolls on the table. It allows me to set up on an angle. NICE LOOK!

    I was going to rent Chafers for a offsite event when I saw these and bought them. The legs are a bit flimsy, and the knob on the lid becomes loose too easily. However the price point is fantastic and they honestly do not look that bad. If you are going to be hosting multiple offsite buffet style catering events then these are worth their money versus renting.

    from Kinsai Restaurant Posted on

    Add a very elegant feel to your buffet with this half size classic chafer!!! Great for more upscale establishments! Handle stays cool for easy removal of lid!!!

    I purchased two of these chafers and they are elegant looking at a very economical cost. I researched for weeks looking for ones like these but couldn't afford them. They look beautiful on the table! I highly recommend them!

    from Sista & Sista Too Posted on

    Works great for half dish items and shows great in your presentation. The style and appearance shows very well for a budget priced chafing dish. I highly recommend the purchase of this item it gives you class at an affordable price.
