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.

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.

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!

After continuous use or misplacing your cover between group events and buffet-style meals, your original chafer may benefit from a stainless steel replacement. This Choice half size cover with a contemporary black handle is identical to the lid originally provided with your Choice Economy 4 qt. half size chafer set with black wrought iron stand (sold separately). Whether you are catering a birthday, barbeque, wedding, or accommodating any hungry crowd, this lid will keep your dishes hot for hours! Plus, you can use this lid to extend the life of your existing chafer.

Instead of buying a whole new chafer set when your original lid breaks or goes missing, save money and buy this replacement lid. Made of durable 18/8 stainless steel, this refined replacement cover is ideal for any special occasion and will withstand years of use.

Dishwasher safe.

    This cover is perfect for using with our steam table for our breakfast and lunch buffets. We are very happy . It also works on our portable steam tables.

    We love the stainless steel chafer/ pan cover. It fits over the chafer pan nicely, keeping the food fresh and warm. I would buy this product again.

    This is an excellent pan. We actually use this as a steam lid for melting cheese on baked potatoes and sandwiches and finishing off salmon filets, etc.

    from Bootleggers Restaurant & Brewery Posted on

    Nice quality for a mid grade lid. Fits most half chafing dishes. Washes over and over without losing finish. Handle is nice and looks great with a coordinating cloth napkin tied around it. Great overall value.

    from The Savory Spoon Catering Co. Posted on

    This is a very good cover. I use it all the time. Lid works perfect around the kitchen for several uses. This is a very good investment.
