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.

Chafer Accessories Review

Accessorize your Choice chafer with our full, 1/2, and 1/3 size food pans! Also check out our 3 types of chafer fuel, convenient microfiber cleaning cloths, and even our refillable long tip lighters.

Another question we get sometimes is whether or not you can use different sized pans in these chafers. And the answer is yes, you can half size and 1/3 size pans. Now, the unit comes with a full sized 2 1/2" deep pan, which I’ll remove, but as long as you’re using 2 1/2" deep pans, you don’t want them any deeper than that or else you’ll be into the water in the water pan. But you can see those half size pans fit in there just right, and if you take this off, we can see that you can put the 1/3 size pans in there as well. Besides being able to purchase different sized food pans from us, you can also purchase different types of fuel. We have the wet fuel, the gel fuel, and we even have environmentally friendly fuel. We also have these microfiber cleaning cloths; these are the perfect thing for polishing the chafer, sometimes they do so well you don’t even need a chemical polish. And we also have these long tip, refillable lighters available as well. Well thank you for watching, and if you have any questions, please feel free to use our live chat button.

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.

    1 out of 1 found this review helpful

    Our church already had many sizes of chafing dishes, however, nothing to hold and serve soup. This item worked perfectly to serve Chicken Gumbo at our first ever Mardi Gras celebration to prepare ourselves for Lent. The item is lightweight and easy to clean.

    from St. Mary Magdalene Byzantine Catholic Church Posted on

    This is so good you should have one, because I'm having trouble finding a soup cooker that has a lot of room in a cheap price, and this one beats other product with price and capacity.

    from Amazing Home Depot Posted on

    wow, is what you say when you lay your eyes on this item. remember to order the spoon if you do not have one its not included. item is a nice size and weight and also a beautiful shine.

    Posted on

    again webstaurant has done a great job. this item is beautiful, the weight, the size, the shine, its all nice.

    We love this soup chafer, but the bottom pot got a hole in it after using it once. We just use another 7 quart pot under it and it works just as good.

    Nice looking soup chafer. Great service by webstaurant in delivering it so quickly. It will look great on my dining table. Easy to set up. Not too big or too small, just right. I am happy with this purchase.

    The 7Qt soup chafer, ready to be used. Very Convenient and will make a lasting impression indeed.

    I purchased this for one of our customers birthday party for at my restaurant and it worked really good. Looks really nice, kept the seaweed soup that we serve very warm for the enough time. Easy to set up and clean

    from yori Posted on

    We bought two of these soup servers and couldn't be more pleased. Not only are they perfect for serving soup, but they look so classy on a buffet line. You won't be disappointed with this purchase. They are of great quality too.

    from Portage United Pentecostal Church Posted on

    Great size for our cheese.. that goes on fries & hot dogs.. so convenient.. so glad I saw on this site. Very easy to clean..

    from Tasty Dawgs& More Posted on

    Great soup chafer at a great price. Can easily use this chafer to keep any liquid you want hot. I have used it for aujus, soup, stock, syrup and much more.

    Posted on

    This is my first time to have a soup chafer. When I received this product, it can see that it is very shiny and it looks beautiful. I will be going to use it to my parents 50th wedding anniversary on November and I am extremely excited. I will be ordering again.

    In the same vein as the Choice chafer's that we use for service, the Marmite's are the perfect compliment for a unified display. Same great quality as the chafer's coupled with a very similar design, it's the perfect wing man for the completion of our look. Aesthetics aside, the unit performs beautifully; even heat from top to bottom & at 7 qt's., refills are kept to a minimum. We usually have an extra unit in reserve, so the issue of hot refills at the area of service are instead accomplished with the extra insert. Regretfully, we have not been able to get Choice to commit to us with a UPC code for the insert only. For now, we make due & is our only complaint. For an economy piece, it's hard to go wrong with this Marmite.

    from KB's Rollin' Smoke BBQ Posted on

    Strong sturdy product made with quality and care from the look and feel of the chafer. It's a great size for my cheese sauce and it works wonders keeping it nice and warm

    from The Hutton Posted on

    This particular chafer allows me to serve everything from soups to vegetables to sauces. I'm overtly pleased with this product and the standard it allows me to set.

    from Michael's Fine Dining Experiences and Cakery Posted on

    Used on this particular occasion to serve string beans. Perfect!!!

    We used this chafer at a graduation dinner. It was very sturdy and we loved how it keep the food very warm! We will be buying more of these!!!

    from Shelton Place Posted on

    I bought two of these chafers for my ice cream business and love them. Its easy to use, keeps the sauces warm and has a great look. We've had many compliments.

    Posted on

    This product worked very well for our events. We have served soup in it as well as hot grits. One note is that when you put the chafing sterno in the holder, it might touch your table or counter because it is low. We always have to place a piece of foil underneath the round section (for safety). Otherwise, we would have given this 5 stars.

    from Jes Catering LLC Posted on

    This soup chafer looks great and is well made and durable. Looks great on a table by itself. We often use this one for weddings.

    from 5-0 BBQ LLC Posted on

    These chafers have been a life saver for my business. They're affordable, beautiful, and they truly enhance our buffet presentation. Also, more importantly, they keep our sauces and stocks warm without overheating or scorching them. We use them to keep our sauces at a safe temperature for our pasta stations and to keep our stocks hot for our risotto stations. We even used it as a gravy warmer for a big Thanksgiving buffet we served last year. Another added bonus is that since we've been using these, we have completely eliminated the need for electricity for our action stations, which really simplifies our setup. It comfortably holds a gallon and a half of liquid, it's easy to clean, and looks great.

    from Mr. Pasta Catering Posted on

    This adds a special touch to serving soup. It is nice looking and also helps to keep the food hot. The only issue is that I now need to find a shorter stainless steel hooked edge ladle. The pot of this is 9 inches tall.

    Posted on

    I love this! I ran a catering business, and this perfect for the soups. This specific chafer holds 7 quarts. It is very durable too
