Deluxe Roll Top Chafers

Deluxe Roll Top Chafers

Our Choice brand Deluxe Rolltop Chafer is our most popular rolltop chafer. This rolltop will not only add a bit of elegance at a low price, but it also eliminates the need to figure out what to do with your chafer lid. Hi, I’m Steve Ziegler, Product Expert at the WEBstaurantstore. Even though we have the lowest price around on these chafers, these are solid units and complete chafing kits. Let’s take a closer look. This chafer has a solid, sturdy, wide-legged welded frame. You get the dome rolltop cover with the gold tone handles, gold tone handles on the sides, inside you’ll see this comes with a 2.5” full-size food pan; has a high polished four inch deep water pan underneath. You also get two fuel cell holders. The unit’s constructed of 18/8 stainless steel, high polished and it’s very easy to clean. In addition to everything that you get with the chafer kit, we also offer third-size and half-size food pans that also fit inside of here. It’s great if you have foods that won’t get used up as fast or if you just want to offer more choices. In addition to extra food pans, we also have a full line of different chafing fuels. We carry the lighters with which to light the chafing fuels. We also carry microfiber clothes which are the perfect thing to polish these units up. They don’t scratch and often they clean so well that you don’t even need any cleaning chemicals. Well, thank you for watching and if you have any questions, please feel free to use our live chat button.

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 Fuel Handling Tips

Chafer Fuel Handling Tips

Remember to always follow equipment manufacturer’s recommendations for pre-heating, but here are some safety tips to insure you have a safe and efficient chafer set-up…(Voice over portion showing shots of each step quickly) -Always select fuel to last the length of engagement so it will not be necessary to change fuels during the event -Always ensure water is hot and steaming and foods are at a minimum serving temperature of 140°F before putting food pan in place -Always use proper tool for removing lids. -Chafing fuels are NOT designed to cook; only maintain proper temperature for serving -Keep chafing fuels away from flammable table decorations or nearby items (i.e., curtains) -Always light fuels IN PLACE; use a long reach match or butane lighter; do not use other lighted cans or rolled up paper -Avoid touching GEL-TYPE cans as they become superheated overtime as the flame burns into the can -Always extinguish chafing fuel at the end of the event, using the proper tool -Dispose of spent fuel cans properly As always, click on the chat button for further questions regarding Choice brand chafing fuels.

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.
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.

    This item was a great addition to my buffet service. Not only attractive, but easy to use by the guests. The food served in it just looked even better!

    from Molly B's Cuisine Posted on

    Have had 6 of these in use for over 6 months, very sturdy yet lightweight and easy on your back. I have been very pleased and would order again.

    from J.Gumbo's Posted on

    These fit my sunday brunch needs to a tee! Affordable, durable, and stylish! These are just what I needed to jazz up my sunday brunch. Thank you!!!!

    from The Meyersville inn Posted on

    I ordered 2 of the 8 qt. Deluxe Roll Top Chafers just a few days before an event I was hosting. They were delivered the next day. I used them for the event and was very pleased. They displayed well, looking very elegant. I also bought different size trays to use inside. I look forward to using my chafers for all of my upcoming events. Thank you!

    from PZE, LLC. Posted on

    I Absolutely found these chafers to be amazing. They are Very good in quality at an excellent price. I Will definitely order some more soon.

    Posted on

    Awesome! this is so professional and looks so expensive. Everyone really liked not having to hold or find a place to put the chafer top. The gold accents really set this unit off. My clients really appreciated the pricing and delivery that was quick!

    from HJS SERVICES Posted on

    Excellent value for the money! We paid about the same for a product from another vendor that did not have the roll top and were unhappy with them. This product is well worth the money!

    from CJ HILL Posted on

    We use these at every venue. The lid is a little heavy, but once set up it's great. Keeps all the food from losing heat.

    Posted on

    These chafers are amazing, they are durable and they shine and reflect with just a little swipe of a towel giving your buffet line a spectacular appearance, the only thing that I have had a hard time with is the little fuel holders if you don't be careful with the lids they will get burnt. but other than that they are amazing, I will be sure to order more (I already own 7)

    We are really happy with our 8 Qt deluxe roll top chafer. We actually only use the roll-top at this time on top of our Hot Dog Cart and it fits wonderfully on the cart and covers our hot dogs so no bugs or debris get on to them. Solid construction, we bang it around a lot and it it still doesn\'t have any dents! Would definitely recommend!

    from Dang Good Dogs Posted on

    The 8 Qt. Deluxe is absolutely amazing. I will definitely order more for catering events and recommend your store to all of my BBQ competitors.

    from Lucille's Links & Bar-B-Q Posted on

    I loved this Item, every time i have gathering with friends and family, my food tables always looks good. i won't have party without this Roll Top Chafer.

    from LITAS CHILD DAYCARE Posted on

    If you need a decent roll top chafer this is an ok buy. It is solid, but the gold accent are cheaply put on. What this chafer has going for it is it's price you really can't beat it.

    nice and very hi quality product ,fest shipping and friendly costumer service.description is clear and picture was same as on the box .i like so much

    from HALYNA KALYNOVYCH Posted on

    I purchased this item before I had it approved. Not NSF approved, however, I guess it would be ideal for a caterer. The look of this item is professional, just couldn't use it.

    from Topplez Corporation Posted on

    This dish is very roomy! I love how much I can fit in it. It's very well priced and definitely looks much more expensive than it is.

    Posted on

    I bought these chafers for my wedding, after hearing that to rent them would cost me a lot! I figured for a few bucks more I could own them. They are beautiful, well constructed and I love the gold accents! I also read that having the rolltop keeps the food warmer than having a removable top. I\\'m very pleased with my purchase!

    Posted on

    We have a catering service and these were perfect. This is a great company and we will trust them forever!!! The wedding party was very impressed by the look and style.

    from Pure D' Elegant Posted on

    We love it. Very slick and keeps the food hot. Used it for a wedding and everyone liked the lids that stayed on. Great value.

    from laurel mountain eatery Posted on

    I found this to be a very professional product, for an awesome price! Choice products have great value and are sure to make your presentation shine!

    My roll top chafer with Chicken and Wild Mushroom Lasagna!

    This Roll top chafer is very nice and sturdy. I used it to warm nacho chips and rolls. With the roll top is easy to keep your food warm.

    from T & C Catering Services Posted on

    I love this item for our buffet needs because it is affordable and heavy duty...Only complaint is that the movable part of the lid can bend if not taken care of but for this price it is just what we need and use at least 5 times a week.

    from Shamrocks Pub n Grill Posted on

    This product was surprisingly great and worked perfect to cover foods to maintain heat and keep the product at proper temps the whole time and easy clean-up as well.

    from Angelsofarkadia Posted on

    from BETHEL-THE HOUSE OF GOD Posted on

    Posted on

    What a value! These roll top chaffers are made of quality construction, don't let the price fool you. These don't stack and do take up some space, but they make for a great presentation. These are not super high end or anything but a great value for the price

    from Arturo's Posted on

    The chafer is well built but changing pans is a problem. The top is cumbersome with no way to hold it without using gloves as to not burn yourself.

    from Two Olive's Gourmet Posted on

    This is a very nice upscale chafer sold at value. It meets serious workmanship and polish to present your food looking the best every time you serve from these.

    from Tristan's Entertainment Services Posted on

    Our first breakfast banquet was a great success. The product kept temperature I had to be aware of my water level. The food was simple though the look was expensive. Chef Wilson

    from Ms. Geneva's 50/50 Restaurant Posted on

    I received my order in time for my house party. It looks so great and received a lot of compliment from our guests. I should have order more. Thank you so much.

    These Deluxe Chafers are very nice. They give such an elegant look to any event. I would purchase these again. I wish I would have ordered more.

    Posted on

    these chafers look good and have a nice shine but you need to give a good cleaning or buff to make sure food does not corrode the finish. some of the lids are not too easy to align and slip off but they do present with a nice look.

    Posted on

    I purchased this item for personal home use for family parties. It looked amazing in person! Sturdy, shiny, heavy and GORGEOUS!! got tons of compliments. This is my first purchase from Webstraurant and I will be back. They have GREAT service too. Im very very impressed how responsive and quick they are in answering questions on email. Thank you!!!
