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.

    These were just the right size that I was looking for to hold topping for my taco bar. I filled these little ones up with all the topping needed to make a fabulous taco. Perfect for rice, beans, lettuce, tomatoes, salsa, etc.....

    I purchased 3 of the 1/3 Stainless Steel inserts for the 8Qt Economy Choice Chafer..it was great to prepare 3 different vegetables and place them in the Chafer and keep them all warm at the same time..This is the absolute best deal I have ever bought..wish I had found this site years ago..would have saved me loads of hard work..I reccommend that anyone that entertains at least 2 a year for a large group purchase the 8Qt Economy Chafer (Choice) and get the smaller inserts also. You won't be sorry.

    from MaryJo Posted on

    These pans seemed to be a little big when we ordered them and was very unsure how many would fit in the chafer we ordered. Three of the 1/3 size pans fit in one chafer. Only complaint is that they could be a little deeper.

    from All occasions by Dunyal Posted on

    These are an integral part of prep for us. They clean so easily and with lids- they become perfectly stackable. We use them in every step of prep. Kitchen necessity.

    from The KBH Posted on

    We use these all day/every day! Great for all sorts of storage.

    The 1/3 size pans are perfect for the smaller events and private party's . It's a great way to keep your chafers looking full and plenty of food!

    from GOOD TIME SMOKING Posted on

    The 1/3 size steam tables are great for separating food, such as various vegetables like tomatoes, lettuce and pickles during cookouts. They also work great for our church functions for keeping various items such as cheese, chili and dipping sauces warm. We would definitely recommend this product!

    from Freedom Holy Temple Posted on

    I bought three of these to fit into one buffet chafer. It fit perfectly and held a lot. I used it for a variety of cold meats, placed iced underneath, and kept it cold.

    These are great. Update brand. Wish there wasn't the hard to pick off stickers on them. Always need these guys around and its a great price.

    from backwater Posted on

    economical choice.

    i love hotel pans for lots of things from cooking in to food storage. these stack nicely and nest if you get different sizes. these "anti jam" versions dont seem too different from other types, but the standard weight version is everything i need. the more expensive versions aren't necessary.

    Posted on

    great for storage or cooking in

    Solid pans that do not jam and are great for holding condiments on nacho bars or when doing a salad station at a buffet. We are happy with the product.

    from Q-Zeens LLC Posted on

    These are a very good basic pan if you are on a budget. They are heavy duty and we will be ordering some more soon.

    from Union County Community Shelter Posted on

    I was surprised they had these size pans, and I intend to order more. They stack nicely and I can't wait to use them. Thanks webstaurant!

    from N/A Posted on

    Posted on

    These are really nice stainless steel steam table pans very durable I like the fact that they don't jam together and they fit inside the other brands I have perfectly

    from Place to be Bistro Posted on

    These pans are a great value for the price, very durable, easy to clean and store, and they have never jammed in the hot hold rails like others have. Very pleased and will buy again.

    from Raid My Pantry Posted on

    I used these to cater a bridal shower this past weekend. The size was absolutely perfect for appetizers for the number of people in attendance (35). The third sizes reduced the number of chafers we needed overall. They're decent quality, though perhaps not industrial-weight.

    Posted on

    I was able to use these at my family brunch in my roll top chafer which I also got a lot of compliments on. I love it very much because of the size.

    Posted on

    This is a great product and quality at an economical price.. I will continue to use this product and highly recommend it to anyone needing additional inserts.

    Posted on

    I ordered this pan specifically for making bread pudding in it. I love it and I works great. I will be using it to make a flan and see how that works out.

    Posted on

    Webrestaurantstore had the lowest price out there for the 1/3 stainless steel pans I was looking for. Fast shipping and easy to order online, highly recommend!

    from Chill Brands LLC Posted on

    These 1/3 size pans fit perfectly into my chafers and make them so versital. The weight is nice and they cleaned up very well. I love the anti-jam aspect as well.

    from Sweet Willow Company Posted on

    These anti jam stainless steel steam table 3'rd pans are a great value. We use ours for every thing you can and they are very sturdy.

    LOOK SO HAPPY FOR THIS 1/3 Size Standard Weight Anti-Jam Stainless Steel Steam Table / Hotel Pan - 2 1/2" Deep VERY STURDY AND NICE STAINLESS STEEL PAN QUALITY BUY MORE SAVE MORE !!!1

    from ashlexdrei tradings Posted on

    The pans fits my chafing set I bought from your website perfectly. The quality is great also. Thanks for meeting my needs. Will buy more

    Posted on

    These 1/3 size 2 1/2 inch pans are perfect for our chafing dishes and allow us to have 3 separate dishes in each chafing dish. The price is great and the pans are sturdy and the corners don't bend with use.

    from Freebirds World Burrito Posted on

    We don't use these on a steam table, but rather as a pan on our smoker. they see probably more abuse that way and these seem as though they will stand up just great.

    from Brian Posted on

    I bought 3 of these for my chafing dish and it fit really nicely. I was very surprise of the quality of this pan. This is not thin, it has weight to it. It can also be use as your breading station if you will buy 3 just like me.

    from Genie Posted on

    The 1-3 size stainless steel chafers work GREAT! We are able to have 3 different items in 1 chafer system. This is great for smaller events and is less bulky than having more chafers.

    from HJS SERVICES Posted on

    Great item for the price. The 1/3 size works very well for serving side or small dishes. Very durable and easy to clean. I will be ordering more for me or as a gift.

    Posted on

    Thank you for providing such a great hotel pan! This is perfect and accommodates all our need for this type of item. I will definitely buy again next time I need this item.

    Posted on

    The 1/3 sizes work great for tons of different things. I use them for egg, batter and dredge stations and for marination of meat (chicken specifically) since I can clean them more aggressively than plastics which scratch.. I like that they are easier on my wallet than some of the more expensive brands and have not had any issues as of yet.

    Posted on

    This is one of the most useful sizes for steam pans. The 1/3 size works well for serving side dishes. The 2 1/2" depth is needed for more chafer to allow enough space for the water underneath.

    Posted on

    This pan is a good alternative to the more expensive major brand. The strength isn't equal but they hold up well to moderate use. We recommend them when on a budget.

    from Sbarro Pizzeria Posted on

    I like the option of having this size pan for smaller items or when I have smaller items. I am not a business, but I use this wonderful website to buy things to entertain my friends and family and it's great to see how delightful they are. These pans are very well made.

    Posted on

    These pans are great for product that is not a best seller but there is some interest for. I would recommend these and order them again.

    from Twisted Tortilla Posted on

    i love the fact that i can use this for my salads and sauces. great value, unbelievable, all my friends just loved my setup! i will be back!
