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.

Overall User Rating: SternoCandleLamp 20106 Gel Chafing Dish Fuel Canisters - 6 / Pack ( 3.8 stars from 4 reviews )

    This is great if you have your water preheated and only need a heat source fro a short time. Sterno has always put out a quality product it won't let you down.

    It burned fast although it says good for 45 minutes and does not heat well. This is good for a small house party or small chaffing dish only.

    While cheap, it is not cost-efficient to buy a 45 minute can if you can get one with more time with a minimal extra cost. The time it takes to exchange the fuel cans is not worth it.

    Great price and easy to use. Much better than candles. No muss and fuss. Plus no candles to buy or candle wax to clean up!
