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!

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!!

Choice Economy Chafers

Choice Economy Chafers

Our Choice brand Economy Chafer is our most popular chafer. While our buying power and our skilled purchasing department, allow us to keep the price incredibly low, we do not sacrifice on quality. Hi, I’m Steve Ziegler, Product Expert at the WEBstaurantstore. Some folks are leery about these chafers because the pricing’s so low. In fact, we get a lot of questions. Many people are wondering if they need to buy fuel holders or food pans separately at this price, but this is a complete chafer set. It comes with a 4” water pan that is satin polished, you have a full-sized food pan, a solidly welded frame which importantly is stackable and you get two fuel holders. The dome cover is highly polished and comes with a cool touch handle. Another great thing about the frame is it comes with a holder for your dome covers. Well, thank you for watching and if you have any questions, please feel free to use our live chat button.

Another question we get sometimes is whether or not you can use different sized pans in these chafers. And the answer is yes, you can half size and 1/3 size pans. Now, the unit comes with a full sized 2 1/2" deep pan, which I’ll remove, but as long as you’re using 2 1/2" deep pans, you don’t want them any deeper than that or else you’ll be into the water in the water pan. But you can see those half size pans fit in there just right, and if you take this off, we can see that you can put the 1/3 size pans in there as well. Besides being able to purchase different sized food pans from us, you can also purchase different types of fuel. We have the wet fuel, the gel fuel, and we even have environmentally friendly fuel. We also have these microfiber cleaning cloths; these are the perfect thing for polishing the chafer, sometimes they do so well you don’t even need a chemical polish. And we also have these long tip, refillable lighters available as well. Well thank you for watching, and if you have any questions, please feel free to use our live chat button.

    I thought these were so convenient. I hate when you have half pans of food and you have to use the rounds ones when your using the full pan square ones. These are a great save so that your table looks cohesive the only thing is the stand doesn't fold and is pretty thin metal

    4 Qt. Economy Chafer Stainless Half Size Chafing Dish Nice chafing dish for the money . I bought a few going to buy a few more.

    from desalvo's Posted on

    This little chafer has been one of the best buy's ever. i've used it for more events than i originally purchased it for. I wish I had bought a few of them and may still do that.

    from Becker College/Chartwells Posted on

    A great investment into any food business. Perfer for smaller parties or just for sauces/gravies/ etc. Nice and light and doesn't take up much room on the table so fits in perfectly.

    from Friendship Muffins Posted on

    The 4 qt chafer is perfect for catering jobs that have multiple vegetable selections. Rather than using a full sized chafer with a split pan the individual pan is perfect to prevent foods from being cross contaminated.

    from hawg city catering Posted on

    Anyone who is a caterer or one who has alot of events should definitely have one of these chafers because serving your guests food in these makes it look very professional

    I use this as a personal chef. I own 4 full size chaffing dishes and find this 1/2 size as a perfect size for a portable steam table. The only down side is they will not fit a deep 4" pan. I just want others to know that before they order it. Awesome chaffing/serving pan. I will order another one soon.

    Harmony Cafe offers both onsite and offsite catering. While being on a budget, this product helps us not only offer customer options, but helps us work within our tight budget.

    from Harmony Cafe Posted on

    I usually use the full size chafers for catering and our lunch buffet but often there are times I find the need for only a half size chafer...this is perfect for sauce or appetizer on buffet.

    from Shamrocks Pub n Grill Posted on

    I am a customer of you and I have not had a chance to buy one, but a friend of mine bought one teacher and the purchase price is excellent, and has over three years and is the same, not to rusty, but you must take care, do not wash well with thick sponge, otherwise soft cloth with soap, so I recommend it, if business is to not put it in the dish machine or home, excellent.

    from ivan`s catering Posted on

    These chafers were indeed the BEST and VERY good quality, especially at this very low price!!! I would recommend these to anyone, and will invest in more when needed.
