Screw Cap Top

For convenient storage when not in use, the can comes with a resealable screw cap top to ensure safe keeping.

Safe and Easy to Use

Despite burning hotter than any comparable wick fuel, the can stays cool to the touch while lit for worry-free handling at all times. Plus, any wick fuel that spills from the container will not ignite. This not only adds further protection for your staff and guests, but guards your establishment from dangerous fires that could cause irreparable damage.

Eco-Friendly

The 6.9 oz. can is comprised entirely of recyclable aluminum, and the liquid is produced from renewable, sustainable resources.

Choice Brand

Choice offers wick fuel that uses non-flammable diethylene glycol. This type of fuel promotes safe burning while still providing a consistent, long-lasting flame. The flame reaches 212 degrees Fahrenheit, the ideal temperature for high-quality heating. Plus, thanks to its wick design, the fuel is brought up to the top of the can to keep the flame ignited. This ensures the can stays cool to the touch during use, as opposed to a gel fuel that burns down in the can, making it too hot to touch or move. Coming in a range of burn times to meet your event’s needs, Choice has the right chafing dish fuel for you!

Customer Q&A Ask a Question

What is the main difference between chafer fuel cells with twist-off metal caps and fuel cells with stem wicks and plastic caps?
Once lit, chafer fuel cells with twist-off metal caps provide a quick, safe, and easy way to extinguish the flame at the end of events. The cap can simply be placed over the flame to snuff it out. Chafer fuel cells with stem wicks and plastic caps require a separate snuffer paddle, regulator, or saucer to extinguish the flame.

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.

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.

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.

    This is the best deal around on 6 hour chaffing fuel. Works great for caterings and not much more than the 2 hour cans. There is nothing more embarrassing than finding out your chaffing fuel is empty and you have been serving cold food.

    I purchased for a Memorial Day event for 75 people, I only need to use 15 fuel chargers. Great for heating up WARM FOODS. This will not heat up, frozen foods, it's perfect for OUTDOOR bbq, for small- mid size gatherings. The price and shipping were perfect, and the best prices anywhere. No leaks, and no duds, in teh case.

    These chafing dish fuels are great for long events. They last the full 6 hours keeping the food hot. I would highly recommend this product.

    The Choice Wick Chafing Dish Fuel provides a strong, consistent burn and is very easy to light. Even in semi-windy outdoor conditions the wick stays burning strong. The fuel does, however, run out prior to the 6 hour mark, so estimate closer to 5 hours. of true burn time

    I purchased the 6 hour chafing fuel because they lasts longer and would not have to be changed out during my event. They burned the entire time (4-6 hours). Kept all my dishes steamy hot!

    This arrived in such a big messed. The box is soaked with fuel. Customer service replace it right away. I will order some more in the future. Thank you webstaurant for keeping your customers happy!

    from Genie Posted on

    The last case of dish fuel that I got was extremely hard to open. I had to actually bust out a tool chest, and I'm a strong guy! Impossible to open on the fly at a catering event, for instance. The product works great tho, once you open it.

    Posted on

    I gave 4 stars bc they’re so hard to open, you will need to use pliers/wrench, others wise you can’t open them, also open prior to your event. They burn around 5.5 hrs. I am completely satisfied with my purchase, it’s a great product, no issues with function. Definitely a great product, once you get them open, lol.

    Posted on

    Use pliers to open & open prior to your event, Bc they’re very hard to open. They work well, burned around 5.5 hrs, using these you don’t have to worry about serving cold food or making sure you change them out on time. I fully recommend

    Great price and boy do they last! The Choice 6 Hour Wick Chafing Dish Fuel with Safety Twist Cap - 24/Case pack is just what our busy catering business needs

    from In-stock supply inc Posted on

    BUY BEWARE THESE WORK GREAT IF YOU CAN GET THEM OPEN ... I WILL SUGGEST YOU PRE-OPEN THESE BEFORE YOUR EVENT .. I HAD TO USE PLYERS TO OPEN THEM

    from Ambiance Affairs llc Posted on

    This product works as it should. It lasts long enough for all of my functions and burns easily. I wish some were a little easier to open but I understand why they are so tight.

    Posted on

    loaded up and ready to go.

    I ordered these fuel cans due to the price. Webstaurant has them for a much better price than my local food purveyor. We use fuel cans a few times a week on buffets and app tables, and these perform as good or better than the ones I can get locally. I will be ordering these regularly.

    Posted on

    I bought a couple of cases of this stuff. I've found that the 6 hour cans last closer to 4.5 hours at most. I've had a few events now, where we needed 10 hour operation of our chafing dishes as it was an all day event, and 9 hours into the event, we had already gone through 2 sets of cans and had to start a third set. Luckily I had brought more than enough. That said, these really should be classified as 4 hour chafing dish fuel. I'll still use them. I just know what to expect no w.

    Fuel being used to heat up food

    This product is great when it comes to needing a long burning time. Arrived on time without any leaking from the containers. Can easy recapped and used for a later time, if fuel still remains.

    from All occasions by Dunyal Posted on

    Finally a sterno can you can open! These were not only easy to open but easy to light and burned very clean and for the full 6 hours in some.
