Chafer Accessories Review

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.

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.

    pans great pan price size hotel clean easy quality fit

    Love these, particularly because they really are anti jam, and do not get stuck together. great for smaller events, where I can use two in one chaffer! also nice to have for extra storage and transport!

    2 1/2" chaffer pan

    These pans are great and exactly what I needed for our chafers. This size of pan is good for transferring food if you're somewhere catering.

    from The Would Eye Posted on

    We ordered these pans to fit our chafers and they fit in the chafer with no issue. We have never used them for baking, but are perfect for keeping the food hot .

    from All occasions by Dunyal Posted on

    This pan is great for small catered events. You can put 2 different foods in these 1/2 pans and put 2 of them in chafers. Cuts down the amount of time you have to do setups and brechargers. Also cuts down waste of foods. I keep several of these handy.

    You just can't beat the price on these hotel pans. They are sized properly to fit in chafers etc. and work as you would expect. Be warned, they are really for home use. They are very light weight and wont hold up well to commercial use. If you are using these in a commercial kitchen, get heavier pans, if you are using them at home, then go for it. They have a dull lustre rather than shine, but they are not offensive to look at. They do seem to be a bit susceptible to staining as compared to our shiny stainless steel pans, though it's not really an issue for our use.

    from John C. Posted on

    Very inexpensive and light weight. Ideal for home use

    These steam table pans are great not just for storing things, they are excellent for baking! I use them as a replacement for cake pans.

    from Saxon Posted on

    These 1/2 size pans are perfect if you are doing sides at an event. It keeps you from making too much food if the party size isn't overwhelming. I would highly recommend this product !

    from GOOD TIME SMOKING Posted on

    I love that this dish is deep and we are able to store a lot of fruit into this container and it also fits into my fridge perfectly!

    from Wonderland Montessori Academy Posted on

    they look great! price is much better then restaurant depo. Iam exited to use them soon for my catering, pop up business...they look as the picture, sometimes that is the hard part of the internet shooping and iam always very careful not to buy poor quality stuff. this was a good deal:)

    from Thao Le - Thompson Posted on

    I love these pans. They are very easy to clean. The price is great. Good for anything you can possibly think of. I even bake cakes in them.

    Deep and holds a lot of food and works well for not only warming and steam tables, but also to cook in since stainless steel is safer and healthier for you than foil and aluminum so it's wonderful to have these for serving and cooking!

    Posted on

    Good for serving or cooking or warming especially since it's stainless steel not foil and healthier that way!

    We ordered the 1/2 size steam pans to put smaller portions of food in at our church functions. It has worked great and helpful to separate things like hamburgers/hotdogs while keeping them both warm. Great product at a great price!

    from Freedom Holy Temple Posted on

    I was concerned that these pans would not fit into my 8 qt. Chafer and they fit perfectly! These pans allow me to convert my 8 qt. Chafer into a server for two items.

    Great value pan for light duty use. Not necessarily the best pan for very heavy use, but great for practically any use you can think of!

    from BlinkyTech International Posted on

    Price is great with these 1/2 size pans. We are used to having very thick/heavier duty ones and was weary of this at first, but it is doing its job great!

    from home address Posted on

    I bought a few of these. Two of them fit into one Chafer dish perfectly. This was nice so we could put more variety of foods onto our food table. I use the extras to refill the food.

    Posted on

    Every catering company needs 1/2 pans. We have lots of them and the price we found on Webstaurantestore is the best we can find. The last two we received had bent corners but we used a small hammer to bang them out and there were good as new. We will continue to purchase this product.

    from Dig & Serve Posted on

    As you can see from this image, the stainless steel steam table is capable of holding a decent amount of food inside.

    pretty standard metal hotel pan. it's sturdy and works well for many different uses. you cans store food in it, but it's also perfect for several different cooking applications. i mostly use them for baking and theyre great

    baking brownies in this half pan

    These look just as shiny since the day we purchased them. You never realize how badly in shape your hotel pans are until you purchase new ones. These are great they don't tarnish and hold everything well.

    from The Meyersville Inn Posted on

    We use all of out pans in our smoker for easy smoker to steam table buffet service. These pans cleanup easily and store cleanly. Highly recommend.
