Choice Chafer Fuel

In this video, Corporate Chef Matt Schuler explains the best options to suit your needs when it comes to chafer fuel. From gel fuel or wick fuel, or fuel that burns up to 6 hours, Choice Chafer fuel has just what you need for every occasion!

Whether you're catering a banquet, wedding, bridal shower, or other special event, we have the best selection of chafers and accessories at the best prices. My name is Matt Schuler, product expert and corporate chef. Today I am going to show you why Choice brand chafing fuels should be your #1 Choice for chafing fuel. Our buying power and skilled purchasing department allow us to keep our pricing incredibly low without sacrificing quality. We offer 3 different types of chafing fuels by Choice. 2 hour, 4 hour, or 6 hour(show pic of 3 cans) Of these three products, you will need to choose which fuel source best fits your application: wick fuel or gel fuel. Choice chafer gel fuel is the hottest and longest burning ethanol fuel on the market! Made from 200 proof gelled ethanol and capable of producing 1630 BTU's per hour, its gelled formula provides a higher heat output than conventional wick fuels and allows for maximum burn time. It is also easy to light, odorless, and burns clean. It delivers high-quality heat that burns hotter, longer, and safer than comparable fuels. Choice Gel fuel is offered in a 2 hour burn time. While Choice wick fuel is offered in 4 & 6 hour burn times. Although the 2 hr gel fuel offers to the lowest cost per can, the best value in terms of burn time & cost/hour is the 6 hour wick fuel. Because our wick fuel offers a convenient screw on lid, you can reuse the fuel to get the full 6 hours of usage out of it. If safety, flexibility and cost per hour are what you are looking for, then Choice wick chafer fuel is your brand. Our 6 hour wick fuel costs 18 cents/hour as compared to 24 cents/hour for the 4 hour wick fuel and 26 cents/hour for the two hour gel fuel. Its wick design and diethylene glycol fuel promote safe burning and help to keep the can cool to the touch even during use, while still providing a consistent, long-lasting flame. Even when spilled the liquid does not burn! These Choice fuels are also eco-friendly! Each can is made from recyclable aluminum, and the ethanol is produced using natural and recycled raw materials, resulting in a high-performance chafer fuel that is organic, biodegradable, 100% recyclable and made in the USA. Choice chafer gel and wick fuels are both great product, but here is a comparison to make your decision easier. Offered in a 2 hour burn time, Choice Gel fuels burn the hottest, are the least expensive and are the best option for chafers with low-resting water pans. On the other hand, Choice chafer wick fuels are available in both a 4 and 6 hour burn time, burn clean diethylene glycol, feature a resealable lid to get the maximum burn time and are cool to the touch. In addition, you don’t have to worry about spilled liquid because any spilled wick fuel won’t ignite. Check out our burn time comparison sheet, cost per hour chart, as well as the MSDS sheet, and our chafing fuel buying guide on our product page. (Show screen shot of product page/comparison chart/cost per hour chart). We also have a chafer fuel savings calculator where you can plug in the amount of fuel used per week and see how much savings you will have by switching to 6 hour Choice brand wick fuel. These charts will help you make a better buying decision! As always, click on the chat button for further questions regarding Choice brand chafing fuels.

Remember to always follow equipment manufacturer’s recommendations for pre-heating, but here are some safety tips to insure you have a safe and efficient chafer set-up…(Voice over portion showing shots of each step quickly) -Always select fuel to last the length of engagement so it will not be necessary to change fuels during the event -Always ensure water is hot and steaming and foods are at a minimum serving temperature of 140°F before putting food pan in place -Always use proper tool for removing lids. -Chafing fuels are NOT designed to cook; only maintain proper temperature for serving -Keep chafing fuels away from flammable table decorations or nearby items (i.e., curtains) -Always light fuels IN PLACE; use a long reach match or butane lighter; do not use other lighted cans or rolled up paper -Avoid touching GEL-TYPE cans as they become superheated overtime as the flame burns into the can -Always extinguish chafing fuel at the end of the event, using the proper tool -Dispose of spent fuel cans properly As always, click on the chat button for further questions regarding Choice brand chafing fuels.

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.

    Love it, helps when I have to make the foods ahead of time and helps keeps the place looking like a five star restaurant. Love it too

    from Deirdra S Posted on

    Thanks for your quick service. I love my Soup Chafers. They are a good quality yet not so heavy to transport. I use these for pasta bar sauces often.

    from Special Thyme Catering Posted on

    I bought five of these chafers for my daughter's upcoming wedding where we are serving soups as the main course. They are an elegant way to serve. They are a nice weight. The soup inserts do not have handles but I think a set of pot holders with silicone grippers will work fine to remove and insert. I plan to use a microfiber cloth to shine them up.

    from Good Grains Posted on

    This was great for the holiday wedding I catered. It is pretty big, which was great for the wassil the bride and groom requested. Kept it hot for the entire event.

    This are great for soups especially if you have a party or gathering. It is also useful for other types of foods. I recently used it for my mother-in-law's birthday. Great use!


    Had been waiting to get something better to serve soup from! This soup chafer is soooo much more professional looking! Hate that it's spring or I'd use it every weekend.

    from Something Special by Sherri Posted on

    These Marmite Soup Chafers exceeded our expectations. They are heavy duty but still manage to look a little dressy. They were perfect for sauces and chili, as well as soup.

    Great for events, nice size and very portable. The look of it looks very elegant and it seems like it'll hold up for a long period of time.

    We like to mix things up when we do Buffett service so having a round chafer is nice when we do sauces and soups. The good trim is my favorite accent and adds a touch of elegance to the display. Easy to clean and stores nicely.
