Stylish Lid Handle

The lid's decorative handle accents the chafer, while providing safe and easy access to your food. Additionally, it's elevated off the lid to keep it cooler so customers and staff don't burn their hands when touching the handle.

Beveled Legs

The beveled legs provide optimum stability to keep your chafer firmly planted even if the table gets bumped by customers or service carts.

Elevated Fuel Stand

The fuel stand is positioned close to the water pan. This helps maintain your food's serving temperature for hours.

Customer Q&A Ask a Question

My stainless steel item has fingerprints and scratches and I can't seem to get it clean. What can I do?
Try using a microfiber polishing cloth. You may not need to use any chemicals to get rid of the scratches and fingerprints. If they are not easily removed by the dry cloth, our Noble Chemical stainless steel cleaner should do the trick!
Can I put the chafer's food pan in the oven?
Yes, the food pan included with this chafer can safely be used in the oven.
Is this chafer dishwasher safe?
While the food pan, water pan, and cover are dishwasher safe, the chafer stand and fuel holders should be hand washed. Wash with soapy water and a microfiber cloth for best results.

    This one of our most used chafers. They are perfect for sauces and some soups. The best part is they add an elegant look to any buffet table. I HIGHLY recommend them!
    Love this round chafer. 5 qt is enough. A very high quality and beautiful product. No change in color. Very quality and They were exactly as described
    These are some of the cutest chafing dishes. They look very high-quality. They work very well and seem like they will be durable enough to last for years to come.
    The round chafers are so elegant on a buffet. The dish holds a lot of food, is easy to assemble and clean. Food didn’t stick and was easy to heat, serve and clean. I recommend the chafer as I will buy at least two more soon.
    Beautiful and spacious chafing dish with ornate handles and top. Definitely has a royal look to it (with very affordable price). I bought 3 of these to use at my next home entertaining event. Capacity for a good amount of food as the inner dish is quite deep.
    We really love the Choice Classic 5 qt. chaffers, they are perfect for small events and add such and elegant touch to any buffet table.
    I was really scared purchasing these items. Took me more than 2 months thinking about it. Glad I did. They are extremely beautiful and great deal.will be placing more orders
    Very elegant chafer and a great buy for the price. It is a nice shape easy to identify and it is a great size 5qt right in between 4qt and 8qt. I find myself using this one a lot. It cleans nicely and is easy to store due to shape.
    I was a bit hesitant about ordering these from an online source, however, when I received them, they exceeded all my expectations! The elegance of the product is by far my favorite feature - you can use it for any occasion. I used it for a graduation party as well as a large family dinner. The chafing dish is stainless steel so the clean up is super easy, holds the food hot for a long while, and looks fancy enough to have at a wedding reception! I will definitely be using these at my wedding in a few months!
    I love the elegant, sophicated and rice look this chafer projects. Just add a great ambiance to your buffet. Easy to handle and store away. Doesn't require any special cleaning agents.
    Very beautiful chafer! I love using them for gatherings I receive endless compliments! Highly recommend this product you will not be disappointed! I have used them multiple times still look new.
    I recieved these beautiful chaffing dishes today. They are great for more than soup these chaffing dishes are very sturdy, heavy and pretty deep. I am in need of more of them already. I love the classy wooden handles and the long legs on this chaffing dish. The item didnt take long to arrive!

    The Choice classic five quart round chafer is gorgeous in appearance and well made. The chafer is perfect for serving soups and gravy. It makes a great addition to our chafer collection and we use it at every catering event.
    We love this Chafer. It is beautiful on the buffet table and it is sturdy and works great. It has an elegant touch and appealing to the eye.
    Choice Classic 5 Qt. Half Size Round Chafer has some assembly required, but this chafer works well for everything from soups and stews, to aju sauces and depending on which food pans you get with it, you can also use them to bake cakes in.
    Purchased these to replace older chafers and I love them. They look great and are a fair price for what they look like. Would purchase again.
