Customer Q&A Ask a Question

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.
My stainless steel item 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.
Is this chafer dishwasher safe?
While the food pan, water pan, and cover are dishwasher safe, the chafer stand and fuel holders should be hand washed. Wash with soapy water and a microfiber cloth for best results.

Chafer Accessories Review

Accessorize your Choice chafer with our full, 1/2, and 1/3 size food pans! Also check out our 3 types of chafer fuel, convenient microfiber cleaning cloths, and even our refillable long tip lighters.

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

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!

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.

Choice Chafer Fuel

In this video, Corporate Chef Matt Schuler explains the best options to suit your needs when it comes to chafer fuel. From gel fuel or wick fuel, or fuel that burns up to 6 hours, Choice Chafer fuel has just what you need for every occasion!

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!!

    Do NOT order these chafers for a restaurant. Maybe for home use....they are NOT durable at ALL as stated in the description. Just a heads up. The company was very good about me returning them.

    from marcos restaurant Posted on

    Thank you for your review Steven! We are sorry these chafers did not work out for your restaurant. These are economy chafers, offered at an exceptional value. We recommend checking out our Mid-Range or our High End chafers for options that might better meet your standards.

    We have been using these chafing dishes for over a year now. They are still in great condition and are a favorite of ours as they have a stainless handle on the lid that makes them just a little different!

    These chafers were the perfect price. Very bouncy during service and i don't for see them holding up to constant use. I would definitely upgrade from these

    I purchase 2 of these dishes for ,y party and they were great. One arrived with marks but i call and the company replaced it with no problems i love this store

    Very good choice for the price. Keeps food warm and easy to store with collapsable legs, easy to clean and gives a professional look for any event.

    from The Tea Kettle Restaurant LLC Posted on

    Nice looking chafer for the money! Great value! med weight...great for occasional use in home or banquet type setting! Easy to maintain and keeps its shine!

    Great price and they have held up better than we anticipated. They are used weekly for special events. Not the best looking ones you can find but will get the job done.

    from Parker Foods LLC Posted on

    Chafers can be one of the most difficult items to purchase. The best chafers are well over $1,000 and sometimes you just don't have that kind of spending cash. These are decent in quality and supreme in value considering cost.

    from Grand Forks Country Club Posted on

    Love the look of the dish chafer! I am catering my own wedding and it has everything looking like we hired a professional caterer. I am completely satisfied.

    Posted on

    Catered a wedding with my new cafer. I love the glass finish look on the chafer. They were easy to set up and take down

    Posted on

    We have expanded our catering quite a bit and need additional Chafers. These are a very economic item - they look good, have convenient clips on the back for when you remove the lids, and they are far less expensive than other products out there. Will be re-buying.

    from SeaWitch Posted on

    I was not satisfied with the look, weight or quality of the products. The csr were not accommodating. Would never purchase here again or reccomend.

    I ordered this Chafer to use for serving food at events. It looks really nice with the stainless steel. It works great for serving and keeping food warm.

    Posted on

    Used them last night for a party for the first time and the worked great. I love them. The price was great. Will buy more.

    from Sophisticatering Posted on

    After pricing chafers rentals for a wedding I decided to purchase these at the same prices as renting. I am so glad I did. This chafer is excellent quality and an even better price. They will come in handy for other family events.

    Posted on

    So far so good. Great price for a basic chafer that looks so much better than the price tag. I will be using for catered events.

    Posted on

    Great basic chafer! Price is great and looks stunning! We also appreciate that it's come with full size 2,5" pan and decorative cans for chafing fuel

    from Tom Posted on

    Very good choice for the price. Keeps food warm and easy to store with collapsable legs, easy to clean and gives a professional look for any event.

    from Albany Community Together Inc Posted on

    Used to serve food at an event - went over very well. The do-it-yourself event was exceptional. The chafing dishes are very sturdy, helps keep food warm longer, and give the look of a professional caterer. I love them.

    I ordered 4 of the Chafers. The order was delivered in a timely fashion. One of my pans was slightly dented. I sent an email to customer service and I received a quick response! Customer service was very kind and quickly addressed my issue. Since the pan was still usable, I chose to keep it. I was very pleased with the excellent customer service. I will definitely be purchasing more items from WebstaurantStore!
