Customer Q&A Ask a Question

My stainless steel item 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.

How To Use A Chafer

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!

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.

    food chafers lids chafer drying great round small vollrath lid

    Our office uses this 4qt chafer for soups and sauces. Our main reason for purchasing this is the lid is able to sit in a holder attachment. We hate when guest have to find a spot to place the lids of chafers. We would have preferred a small roll top but this does the job just fine!

    These units are still shinny and new after a lot of use great product, great price. Once again I am very happy with my items

    from steven riccardi enterprises Posted on

    I have used other small round chafers and found h=the food drying out quickly, with the vollrath samll round chafer it kept the food at just the right temperature for the duration of time needed without drying out the food or scorching the bottom of the food. Highly recommend Vollrath products.
