My stainless steel item has fingerprints and scratches and I can't seem to get it clean. What can I do?

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?

Deluxe Chafing Dishes

Our stainless steel chafing dishes come in a variety of shapes and sizes at a great price. Perfect for any occasion, these chafing dishes will add pizazz to your presentation while going easy on your wallet.

Hi I’m Steve with the WEBstaurantstore and these are our deluxe chafing dishes. They are called deluxe because they are a step up from your economy chafing dishes. They have these gold tone handles and legs that make them suitable for any occasion. They also come in three different shapes. We have the round rectangular, and also the oval shapes to add a little bit of interest to your buffet line. Now, don’t be fooled by the price. These Choice brand deluxe chafers are complete sets. First, you can take a look at the outside and see how high polished that is. Its 18/8 stainless steel. It’s extremely cleanable and it’s also very durable. Now, this dome cover comes with a very heavy gold tone handle. You can see inside here you have a 2.5” deep food pan with little ears on the side on this oval one which makes it really easy to pick up. Inside here we have a 4” deep water pan with a high polished outside and we have the heavy gold handles on either side and heavy gold welded frame. And then you can see on the bottom here, we have the two fuel cell holders making it a complete kit. I love the fact that the Choice brand deluxe line of chafers comes in three different shapes. In additional to the oval one that I already showed you, we do have this rectangular one which is a full-sized chafer. It also has the added, extra benefit of a dome cover holder welded right onto the frame. For smaller portions, we also have this round chafer as well. Well, thank you for watching and if you have any questions about our deluxe chafers, please feel free to use our live chat button.

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. These charts will help you make a better buying decision! As always, click on the chat button for further questions regarding Choice brand chafing fuels.

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.

    from AIE, Inc. Posted on

    purchased along with rectangular gold accent chafer to use for rehearsal dinner; disappointed in the quality of the item, the handle was broken on the top. Missed the deadline to return and tried afterwards but was told it was too late. The material was thin; not as durable as others I have purchased in retail stores.

    Thank you for the review! We’re sorry this has not worked well for you and that you were not satisfied with the services provided.

    We have ordered this unit before but never left a review, Superb, Elegant, Professional, Awesome! only a few words that we choose to describe how this item looks.

    from HJS SERVICES Posted on

    This item gave my dish an extra "pop" and the quest loved it!!!! I was able to to utilize this item without having to add additional chafting pans as space was limited....

    from a touch of l.i.n. Posted on

    Just like the 8 qt rectangular chafer, this chafer is stylish and fits any occasion! We usually use the oval chafers for side items and rectangular chafers for main dish (meats mainly). The only reason we reviewed this chafer as a 4 is because the lid fits akwardly.

    Posted on

    I was disappointed when I received the 6 qt. oval chaffing dish. The lid doesn't fit. There is about a half inch gap on the ends and it is a little wide for the tray, so I hope it will keep the heat in. Also, one of the handles had a gummy film on it. The box that it was packed in was missing a whole corner side, so I don't know if it was damaged during delivery. I ordered two Deluxe 8 qt. and one Deluxe 6 qt. for a wedding reception and the 8 qt. were in great shape.

    Thank you for your review, Leslie! We are so sorry to hear that the chafers you received were defective. A Customer Solutions Representative will be in contact with you to resolve the issue.

    WebstaurantStore Customer Solutions

    A must for buffet lovers out there. You don't have to worry about if your guest will be a little late because food will still be warm when they arrive. I gave it four stars because one of the lid will not close properly, leaving a gap of half an inch or so. It is still reusable. Customer service gave 20 percent off. Thank you!

    from Genie Posted on

    I ordered two of this along with the 8 Qt gold trim chafer. This is so beautiful that i am going to order more. I will recommend this for a friend.

    Absolutely fabulous and enticing, the shape and every aspect of this oval chafer is georgeus. Will definitely buy some more a later time when in need of them for an occasion or even for personal use, either way, it is a great way of saving money from buying disposable foil pans.
