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).

  • Arrange by 
    These fuels are EXCELLENT for chafed foods and for keeping portable holding cabinets up to temp. The liquid fuel is a major improvement over the classic solidified alcohol being much less messy. The twist caps make it easy to economize and ensure that these canisters are used to 100% completion - I typically mark the # of hours used on each cap for quick selection of partials later.
    Last minute item and totally was worth it. The price is great. I checked for the same items in different stores but the prices and quality of the ones i,ordered from this site were better hands dpwn
    We were not sure these would be any better than the no name brands, and to be fair fuel is fuel. But, these are extremely cheap by comparison, and we have since moved on to ordering these by the case. Wonderful little product. We have used hundreds of these over the years, and I cannot think of one time we had a canister that leaked or did not perform as expected (re duration).
    These wick fuel cans last for at least 6 hours. Keep your food warm at parties, receptions or banquets. These light easily and work great.
    This 2 pack of warming fuel is perfect for keeping food warm at parties or receptions. Each can burns for 6 hours giving you 12 hours of heat per pack.
    This two pack of chafer wick fuel is perfect for any banquet or reception. Simply light these cans and they will burn for six hours keeping your food nice and warm.
    Choice 6 hour wick chafing dishes fuel comes in a 2 pack. Essential for caterers. Keeps chafing pans hot up to 6 hours with this dish fuel
    If you've only ever tried gel fuel, you're in for a treat. These burn strong, hot, and consistently. The lids SCREW back on, so they're easy to reseal and finish using another time.
    I really like using this choice brand six our WIC chafing dish fuel it really last long they really hold up to being in the wind
    I would recommend this product to anyone who may be having a hard time finding reliable sternos. The long lasting 6 hours makes your job easier and they are a nice option that will not spill.
    Choice six-hour wake chafing dish fuel is perfect for any aluminum pan warming. Last nice long time so there's no need to worry about having to replace it. Provides plenty of heat to keep our food items warm
    My biggest regret with this product is that I only got a 2/pack. I'm ordering a much larger package next time. They last a lot longer then many dish fuels out there.
    These are great burners for my chafer. They really last for the 6 hours promised. Great price also. I will buy again in the future.
    Not much to hate about these, they pretty much are what you should expect them to be. The light fine and burn clean for a decent amount of time. overall a good buy.
    It does the job. Not much more can be said. They are well priced and it is great that two is sold in a pack.
    These are great burners for my chafers. They last more than long enough for my use. The only downside is that the wick sticks up higher than the lid of the holder so you can't use the top to put it out.
    These wick chafing dish fuels are perfect for catering events, using to keep trays warm, or, using for a fondue station. The only thing I'll say that I had an issue with, is that the twist caps are rather difficult to untwist. Not sure why, but some are easier to twist off than others, but I would have a rubber can opener read for these. Also, just to be aware, once you extinguish the flame, you're not able to relight it.
    These are amazing! They keep food warm for hours and the light up easily! These don't have the "sterno smell" I have gotten with other fuel.
    What a noticeable difference from those cheaper chafing dish fuels. Easy to open twist cap which is resealable so you can use fuel again if you like.
    Great chafer fuel, keeps things hot for a long time. Used these for an outdoor event and they did the job very well. Will be ordering again.
    Very economical wick chafe fuel is easy on the pocket book for mere change. It last a long time but it keeps food warm not hot in the mostly middle areas where the can is located so you need to stir food around.
    Good fuel. Burns nice a long, good for self serve events and situations where the food doesn't have to be kept blazing hot, just warm.
    This Chafer fuel is just what we needed to go with the Chafer Sets that we ordered. They lit easily & lasted as long as promised. Definitely a quality product at a wonderful price!
    I always thought Chafer Fuel was all the same but apparently I was wrong... My husband and brother in law that these cans were better than the previous purchase that I done on this site... (can't remember which cans I purchased prior to this) I think it came down to the screw type lid and not the pop off type that a lot of cans have.... Anyways... Webstaurant delivers again. :-)
