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 Accessories

Take a look at what accessories Choice has to offer for chafers!

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.

    I’ve been using these for years with no issues. Clean burn, long lasting, and no odor. And the resealable cap is great if you don’t need the full 6 hours!
    These came super fast and just in time. They are cheaper than big box stores and much better to open. I didn't have to bang on the lid to open them up.
    Works well with sturdy stainless steel trays, don’t recommend use with flimsy aluminum trays. Has a strong flame that heats well and fast but also long lasting.
    This chafing fuel is inexpensive and lasts for 6 hours. However like some had mentioned in the comments, the caps are screwed on VERY tight. Loosen them before hand with a wrench or you will be struggling to untwist them at your event.
    The Choice 6 Hour Wick Chafing Dish Fuel with Safety Twist Cap - 12/Pack is a great product we will be ordering more for our shops in the near future I am sure
    This choice 6 hours wick chafing dish fuel pack of 12 is perfect for parties. I used it for my party and I am very happy I did.
    Amazing product. This product does just what it says it does. I would certainly recommend this for any cookout or family reunion event. Burn baby burn!!
    Awesome product they lasted the entire event. The best part is I didn't have to go and changed them mid dinner. Perfect one thing less to do
    IMPOSSIBLE to open. I took these to an event an ended up being super late wile trying to open them. I asked plenty of people for help and no one could open. Such a frustrating experience.
    Thank you for your feedback! We’re sorry you did not prefer this product. For recommendations, please contact our Customer Solutions team.
    Fits standard chafing dish fuel holders. Did not burn for 6 hours though. Closer to four and a half, but we think that was because it was a little windy that day. Would like to try inside to see if they go for the advertised 6 hours.
    Need some strength to open the cap. Easy to use once the cap is open. Last as long as it described. We also used different brands and this brands seems to be our favorite.
    Easy to use although the caps are little difficult to remove and you need some strength. The burning time is as described. Having a larger pack is great, so you don't run out.
    Excellent fuel burning to keep chafer pans hot up to 6 hours. This fuel is top of the line and comes in a 12 pack
    These wick chafing dish fuels work well for events where food is needed to remain over heat for a longer period of time. The MAJOR drawback is that pliers are needed to open them. I read in a previous review that they are difficult to open but didn't expect that pliers will be necessary. While they are convenient, unsure if I will purchase again.
    These cans are great! They burn very hot, and I get the full 6 hours (or more) from each one. It is easy to recap them if you don't need the full 6 hours, especially since they just screw on (much easier than getting the lids in just right for regular gel canisters).
    These cans of chafer fuel are a great value. Last for six hours and work under most type of chafing dishes. Easy to light and keep your food warm at banquets or receptions.
    Very clean burning fuel source! We didn't quite need the full twenty four pack, but this convenient twelve pack suited our needs just fine! These fuel burners work just great for daily use.
    This is a 12 pack of chafer wick fuel by choice. Great for keeping your buffet food warm and these last for six hours. These are an economical choice for food warmers.
    These work as expected. They last pretty much the entire 6 hours like advertised. Kept everything hot at our outdoor pig roast for many hours. only complaint is the lids are so hard to get off!
    I used the Choice 6 Hour Wick Chafing Dish Fuel this past weekend with the new chafing dishes I purchased from Webstaurant Store and they worked well We turned them off after 4 hours they were still going strong at that time.
