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.

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 Green Heat Chafer Fuel

Sterno CandleLamp Green Heat Chafer Fuel

A few years ago, CandleLamp committed to develop a line of environmentally preferred products that do no compromise performance. The program is called Sustainable Solutions. CandleLamp’s Sustainable Solutions Program starts long before the final product ships and is used. It actually touches every link of the value chain, starting with sourcing all the way to end use. Green Heat was the first product to launch under the Sustainable Solutions program. It was the first ethanol chafing fuel to remove methanol and replace it with an environmentally preferable denaturant, an innovative green product solution without performance compromise. Green Heat was the first chafing fuel to receive EnviroKleen certification. It is also endorsed by the Green Restaurant Association, and is a part of the USDA Bio-Preferred program. Green Heat quickly became the number one preferred green chafing fuel amongst foodservice professionals. Now CandleLamp is proud to announce Safe Heat Green, an environmentally preferred liquid wick chafing fuel. Safe Heat Green is the first liquid wick chafing fuel endorsed by the Green Restaurant Association. Safe Heat Green offers all the benefits of liquid wick and the environmental friendliness of Green Heat, a truly innovative solution. As mentioned, it is the first GRA endorsed liquid wick chafing fuel. Safe Heat Green is also a USDA certified bio-based product. The formula uses bio-based propylene glycol, which is a renewable and sustainable resource. This new formula is patented, is biodegradable, and the liquid is nonflammable without a wick. Unlike gel chafing fuels, the can stays cool to the touch after it is lit, just like any other CandleLamp liquid wick chafing fuel, Safe Heat Green maintains a consistent flame height. It is available in two-hour, four-hour, and six-hour configurations. Safe Heat Green meets CandleLamp’s Sustainable Solutions program as a truly green product that does not compromise performance. Safe Heat Green provides the same level of heat output as the non-green alternative. No matter which hour or wick configuration you choose, Safe Heat Green keeps food above the food safe serving temperature. For more information about Safe Heat Green, visit www.CandleLamp.com. Call or contact your local sales rep.

Chafer Fuel Safety Tips from SternoCandleLamp

Chafer Fuel Safety Tips from SternoCandleLamp

The unfortunate truth is that common sense isn’t always common, so we’ve come up with an easy to follow list of safety tips to help you enjoy your Sterno chafing fuel. Let’s review the list. First off, always follow the equipment manufacturer’s recommendations for the number of cans to use. When it comes to opening the can, do not open the can carelessly or haphazardly. You want to carefully open the can using an appropriate tool. Now for lighting the fuel. Do not use matches or rolled up paper to light the fuel, and never light chafing fuels can to can. The only safe way to light chafing fuels is with a long reach butane lighter. Please do not light the chafing fuel and then move it to the service area. Always make sure you’re in position first, then safely light your fuel. Do not hold gel fuel in your hand as you light it or touch it while it’s burning. These cans get very hot. Do not place fuel cans in close proximity to flammable objects such as paper runners, napkins, and table decorations. Be sure to select the burn time that matches your needs. Finally, at the end of an event, always extinguish the flame with the correct tool and dispose of the cans properly.

    These chafer fuels work great. Never had a problem with them and they heat well for a decent amount of time. I did notice that they seemed to ooze the fuel a little in trasport though.

    from Mike's Mindful Plate Posted on

    The description of these sterns is completely accurate. They will last a minimum of 2 hours. The thing I like is that they are a solid fuel, meaning you do not have to worry about them spilling, or fumes exploding... They are a safe chaffing fuel. I will use them whenever I am in doubt about my banquet clientele.

    These chafer fuels are great for all sorts of applications! They are good for chafers of course but also nice for warming hot boxes too! Not to mention they are green as well!!!

    While it is important to be green, the amount of time it burns versus the cost of this pack doesn't seem to justify its cost. It does what it needs to, but that could be done cheaper.

    this is something you NEVER want to run out of!! I like to keep a few extras on hand so I'm never caught short. Be sure to order extra!!
