Choosing the Right Fuel For Your Event

Choosing the Right Fuel For Your Event

Did you know chafing fuel comes in a variety of options to choose from. In fact, Sterno CandleLamp has a full line of liquid and gel chafing fuels that conveniently fit any need, each with its own unique quality and burn time to make the perfect for any event. If you’re catering, guests expect hot food and hot beverages to be served at the ideal temperature from beginning to end. Here are three tips for choosing the right fuel for your next event. First, what’s the length of the event? For safety, food must be maintained at a minimum temperature of 140 degrees Fahrenheit. For long events, liquid chafing fuel is a good option because it comes in 4, 5, and 6 hour burn times. Safe Heat or gel chafing fuel is a good option because it comes in a 2 hour burn time. The second thing to consider is: what will the fuel be used for? There are four common applications. For chafing dishes, it’s best to use any Sterno 2, 4, or 6 hour fuel can. For beverage urns and room service carts, the 2 hour Stem Wick or Handy Wick product is recommended. For banquet carts, two cans of Safe Heat produce great results. The third thing to consider is: should you use a liquid or gel? Here are a few reasons to use a liquid fuel: liquid fuel will provide a heat source close to the pan throughout the burn cycle. Liquid fuel is also a safer source as the cans stay cool to the touch and are also spill-resistant, keeping the liquid sealed in the steel canister. Stem Wick, Handy Wick, Safe Heat, and Safe Heat Green, which are Sterno CandleLamp’s liquid chafing fuel, have 2 hour, 4 hour, 5 hour, and 6 hour burn options. Handy Wick comes with a twist cap for convenient storage and reuse. Gel fuel comes in three varieties: Ethanol which is pink; Methanol which is blue; or Green Heat which is green in color and is a corn-based ethanol. Ethanol burns hottest of all three. If you are considering a green catering option, Green Heat is a great choice since it’s formulated from sustainable resources. Gel fuel is a great option because it’s easy to light; it’s clean burning, and leaves virtually no residue.

Sterno CandleLamp Safe Heat Chafer Fuel

Sterno CandleLamp Safe Heat Chafer Fuel

Chafing fuel plays a critical role in foodservice because its function is to make sure food stays warm and safe before serving to guests, but not all types of chafing fuels are created equal. Liquid lamp chafing fuels offer advantages over gel chafing fuels. First, let’s talk safety. Safe Heat and heated from CandleLamp are spill resistant. The liquid is sealed inside the can. If you shake the can, some liquid will come out; however, it’s nonflammable. Unlike gel chafing fuels, Safe Heat and heated will only burn with a wick. Unlike gel fuel, the can stays cool to the touch, helping to avoid burns and unnecessary drops and spills. Methanol gel is classified as toxic. Safe Heat and heated do not contain the skull and cross bone symbol, so they’re considered nontoxic. Safe Heat and heated offer the cheapest per hour burn cost on the market. A six-hour can will save you hundreds to thousands of dollars each year. The cans can be relit, so you avoid unnecessary waste. And they can be used at multiple events. Safe Heat is available in a variety of burn times from 2 hours to 6 hours, so it can meet the time needs at any event. Safe Heat and heated both offer a patented Power Pad on select models. This feature creates a broader flame, maximizing your heat output. So now that you know that Safe Heat is what true professionals use, go to our website at candlelamp.com or follow us on Facebook and Twitter. By the way, Safe Heat is now available in a greener version called Safe Heat Green. It’s the first liquid wick chafing fuel endorsed by the Green Restaurant Association. You can experience the difference by visiting candlelamp.com and asking for a free trial pack.

Overall User Rating: SternoCandleLamp 10106 Wick Chafing Dish Fuel Canisters - 4 Hour - 24 / Case ( 4.6 stars from 5 reviews )

    These sterno's do the job. Be warned that on 2 occasions the box arrived wet from leaky canisters. Not a big deal but you should be careful.

    These have been great, I'm on here today to reorder! I use them for mostly outside tailgating and have never had a problem! I'd definately recommend these.

    ive used a lot of sternos over the years but this 4 hr wick canister stands out from the rest price was great, easy to use and no spills

    from Randys family restaurant Posted on

    This fuel works great! I have a friend who bought this same fuel at a store close to him. There aren't any local places around where I live that carry this type of product unless I drive to a Sam's Club 45 minutes away so this is great to be able to buy it here, and not have to drive forever to get it. The price is great, and it lasts for 4 hours just like advertised. I would highly recommend this product.

    This chafer fuel fit both my disposable chafers as well as my stainless steel chafers. Worked well, no fuel smell, no leaking from caps when storing, and 4-hours covered the entire event.
