Supreme Chafer

Supreme Chafer

Hi, I’m Steve Ziegler with the WEBstaurantstore. Today, I get to talk about my favorite chafers, the supreme line. Why are they my favorite? Well, it’s simple. When I started selling food service equipment 15 years ago, my customers would go gaga over pictures of chafers like these but they’d never buy them. They’d never buy them because chafers like these back in those days would start in the thousand dollar range. One of my favorite things about these supreme chafers compared to other chafers is these are perfect for both dual-sided and single-sided service. You can see this dome cover will open 180 degrees so you can serve off both sides of the table. However, if you want to just serve off of one side of the table or if you are dealing with some wind, you can set this pin right here and you’re able to have this at 90 degrees to just serve off of one side of the table. Both the round and the rectangular have this feature. The 4-quart however only opens 90 degrees for single-sided service. With their extra heavy construction, their large size and their simple and elegant styling, these supreme chafers really make a statement. Although they are priced low enough for home use, they would just as at home at a 4-star hotel or the fanciest wedding.

Universal Electric Chafer Heater

Universal Electric Chafer Heater

Nowadays, healthcare and other facilities keep leaning toward banning the use of open flames and sometimes flames just aren’t practical. But, what if your job is to set up a buffet in a facility like that? Are you going to go out and buy all new electric chafers? Nope, you can just buy one of these. Hi, I’m Steve Ziegler, Product Expert at the WEBstaurantstore and this is the Universal Electric Chafer Heater from Vollrath. What’s great about these heaters is they’ll work with any chafer including the ones you already own and they plug into a standard 120volt outlet. Here, I’m going to show you how to use them now. The first thing I want to mention about these is I recommend these for single sided buffet service rather than dual sided because you really don’t want people walking over an electrical cord that’s attached to a chafer of hot food. Let me show you why these things are universal here. You see the bottom right here this will fit in any chafer fuel cell hole if it’s the type of chafer that has like a hole that you put your fuel cell in. But also it has a spring right here; it’s spring loaded and that ensures that this heater will press perfectly against your water pan. I’m going to go ahead and put this in here. You can see the great thing about these is they’re so efficient you only need one of these per chafer. I’m going to go ahead and put that in there. Then, you just set your water pan on top filled with water. I always recommend you start with hot water. There you go and you just plug it in. It has a low or a high setting. You just set it to the desired temperature and you’re ready to go. Well, thank you for watching and if you have any questions, please feel free to use our live chat button.

If you cater events where open flame isn't allowed, don't go out and buy all new chafers! Our Vollrath universal electric chafer heater works with any chafer and plugs into standard outlets. And, they're so efficient, you only need one per chafer!

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!!

Chafer Accessories Review

Chafer Accessories Review

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.

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!

Customer questions about this product

Can I use different sized food pans in this chafer?
For any of our chafers that come with a 2 1/2" deep, full-size stainless steel food pan, you may also purchase two 1/2 size or three 1/3 size pans for added serving flexibility. Whichever size food pans you decide to use, make sure you're using only 2 1/2" deep pans, as they allow the proper amount of space for water and steam.
Does this chafer's top open all the way or does it have multiple "settings"?
Yes, this roll top chafer opens fully with no intermediate stops or settings.
My stainless steel chafer has fingerprints and scratches and I can't seem to get it clean. What can I do?
Try using a microfiber polishing cloth. You may not need to use any chemicals to get rid of the scratches and fingerprints. If they are not easily removed by the dry cloth, our Noble Chemical stainless steel cleaner should do the trick!
Can I put the chafer's food pan in the oven?
Yes, the food pan included with this chafer can safely be used in the oven.

    Theses are wonderful chafers dishes, they aare a bit expensive but they are great, makes your food look like a store buffet line. Our clients love the look.

    from Mr.Roland's Catering, LLC Posted on

    I've been in the food business for 30 years. This is one of the best chafers I have ever used. I bought 3 and will purchase more. How can you resist the price. Excellent product, excellent price!!!

    from Global Gatherings Posted on

    For the price, these are some of the best chafers on the market, They showcase the food very well and are quite easy to maintain.

    from DUO 58 Posted on

    These are a classy, yet still affordable way to present your food to your guests. They are a little bulky and heavy, but that comes with the roll top style. They are well built and look sharp.

    from DUO 58 Posted on

    upgraged from standard chafers. These are great and very sturdy as well as large. My only complaint is finding a box to use to transport and store these.

    from Just Eat This Catering Posted on

    These look great, and are tough, but be aware that they are very large and heavy, and the metal is not well finished on the edges so the edges are sharp. They lack handles so are difficult to carry. I have had two staff cut their hands on these already, one got pinched by the rolltop, one was carrying one and it slid and cut across her fingers. Will not be ordering more:(

    from The Campus Club Posted on

    Thank you for your review! A Customer Solutions Representative will be in contact right away to resolve the issue. These chafers should not have sharp edges; it sounds like they may be defective.

    These chafers are gorgeous, we worked with rental roll tops and lived it. So we decided to search for our own.... You will love the solid construction of these chafers. The price is more than fair and they look amazing. It was nice not having to scrabble for placement of the regular 2 part chafer lids. We love them and so will you!

    from Catering By Tina Posted on

    These chafer's are the best. They have a high look and weight with a economy price. They will class is brunch or banquet up in no time. Great product.

    from Uri's Landing Posted on

    I purchased 5 of these for a start up catering business and couldn't be happier. They are well built and go with any décor/event. My customers really like the way these look and I get complements all the time.

    from Avenue54 Catering Posted on

    I've been in the restaurant business for 40 years. My chafing dishes have been treated with TLC for the last 27 years that I've been catering. I just bought 6 of these reconditioned chafers. Gorgeous! I just wish I could find chafer storage boxes to fit them. I plan to buy a few more as they make a very classy presentation.

    We bought 3 of these chafers for Thanksgiving. The setup looked like what you would see in a nice hotel . We received many compliments and I would highly recommend the Supreme chafers to anyone looking to "fancy up" their event. The perforated holes on the side of the lid worked perfectly. It eliminated any steam buildup which is usually an issue for attached lids on chafers.

    Posted on

    First impressions means a lot and this chafer definitely deserves 5 stars. I purchased 4 - 8 quart chafers and 4 - 6.5 round roll top chafers to use for a Thanksgiving Dinner on yesterday and the compliments were non-stop. Extremely elegant and just as classy, dare I say classier, than similar chafers sold at a more heftier price. Shipping time and customer service is phenomenal and I will never hesitate to purchase more of this product or any product from webstaurantstore.com. I highly recommend this product and site!

    from Erica A. Posted on

    This was probably one of the best purchases I have made from this store! I am definitely going to invest in another one. Outstanding product and great presentation!

    Outstanding quality, just what we needed. Arrived in great condition and we could not be happier.This is a great space saver compared to the lose lid steemers we were using.

    from A&C Wholesale Distributors Posted on

    Love the look of the 8 Qt. supreme chafer. They have a very cool look/design about them. Therefor, they are very pretty on buffet tables.

    from Queen City Catering Posted on

    I was in need of some chafers and after researching several sites, WEBstaurant had the best prices for the chafers I was looking for. I need 20, but I wanted to make sure they were what I needed. After getting the first 4 I WAS AMAZED at the quality...I ordered the remaining 16 the day I received the first order. Awesome product and Great prices! A Must Have in the catering business.

    from Exclusively Yours Catering Posted on

    this is a really great chafer. very shiny. these are great to have at a fine dining establishment that occasionally has buffets. Also great for breakfast at nice hotels.

    from Chef Brothers Inc. Posted on

    I just received 2 Supreme Chafers, and I must say for the price I am more than pleased. They are beautiful. I got these for home use, we have alot of parties (3 kids)and I wanted something that would last along time, and I found exactly what I was looking for. Beautiful Product! Very Pleased!

    from Theresa Gaude' Posted on

    We are new to the event venue business and it has been a struggle to learn the business. I searched for hours on the internet for great products at a good price and found this site. One big issue were the chafers which you can buy at a big box store but they are kinda plain Jane. These are much nicer and I would purchase it again. We have now used it for about 3 months and we like it!
