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.

    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

    These fuel containers with wicks burn so clean that you can't easily see the flame, but rest assured, they are doing their job! The fuel lasted for just over 6 hours and did a fine job of heating water under a food tray in a chafer. It should be noted that these containers are extremely difficult to open. You will need to have something to help you grip the twist cap - and you will need a lot of strength! A fabulous choice for events requiring chafers to be hot for a long time.

    As much catering as we do we use the 6 hour fuel a lot and very efficient for a wedding or shower function, with fuel to spare, very clean burning also.

    from Charlton Tavern LLC Posted on

    this fuel is just what I needed to keep food for a long night party warm . they lasted through the program and everyone was happy the food was still warm when ready to eat.

    from Glorious Celebrations Posted on

    I've been very pleased with the Choice 6 hour Wick Chafing Dish Fuel!!! I've used them for weddings and personal parties and after using a case of them they've all burned for at least the 6 hour advertised time. Very satisfied. I'll be purchasing more!!!

    Posted on

    These are a great price and work just as well as sterno brand. Being able to get them in bulk with a discount is great too!

    from Papa Del's Pizza Factory, Inc. Posted on

    Prior experience with other products of this nature was very unsatisfactory however these prove to be a better quality of product and lasting longer than would initially it’s supposed to . very pleased

    from Teri & Co Catering Services Posted on

    We use this fuel for every dinner that we host & have never had a problem with any of them. They last just like they are supposed to & are easy to store & reuse if the full 6 hours wasn't utilized. Will definitely buy them again.

    from Dayspring Community Church Posted on

    Best chaffing dish fuel ever. It last long.. You can pick a 4 or 6 hours and it last more than you expected. We'll buy it again here

    from Marriott Posted on

    We use these repeatedly for our buffets and private parties. The time on them is very reliable. They cool down quick once you put them out so no burns.

    from BombDigity 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
