Customer Q&A Ask a Question

Can I use different sized food pans in this chafer?
For any of our chafers that come with a 2 1/2" deep, full-size stainless steel food pan, you may also purchase two 1/2 size or three 1/3 size pans for added serving flexibility. Whichever size food pans you decide to use, make sure you're using only 2 1/2" deep pans, as they allow the proper amount of space for water and steam.
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.

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. We hope this video helped you make the right “choice” for your foodservice application!!

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.

    chafer gold price chafers nice expected event food bought love
    1 out of 1 found this review helpful

    Excited to find this item and a good price, but excitement changed to disappointed when removing the item to use at my son's rehearsal dinner; extremely disappointed in this item, quality was not what was expected; sturdiness and luster of product was poor; all material was thinner than expected, construction of the item was cheaply put together; did not expect the handles and legs to be glued on, use to being screwed on; needed it for a buffet table at a rehearsal dinner; had no time to replace as i did not examine when received thought I was getting a superior product based on customer reviews; had to use it along with the other items purchased in this line and just as equally dissatisfied with those products as well...6 qt oval gold accent chafer and 4 qt round gold accent chafer. I would not recommend if you really one elegance; far from it in my opinion.

    Ok, so these Chafers are not durable, lets go ahead and get rid of that idea. They are EXTREMELY thin and obviously scratch and dent very easily. Every Chafer I received had scratches and dents. Its basically like i bought used Chafers. Now, keep in mind that at the price, I kinda expected thin chafers that I could use till they got beat up and just toss them and get new. I just didn't know they would be beat up for me. Unfortunately, I need them for an event next week, so I don't have time to return them. They would have gotten three stars except for one other thing. The gold accents are just painted on, so it scratches off pretty easily. One of my frames came with the gold scratched up. So I feel like paying the extra per chafer was kind of a waste of money, and would advise anyone looking at these to go with the solid stainless version. I probably would have been a lot happier with those. Anyways, the good about these is they are cheep and will do the job, and once they get beat up they are easy to replace. The bad: expect them to arrive slightly damaged, and don't over pay for cheap gold paint that's just gonna scratch off anyways. Bottom line, I would NOT buy these again, but would try the solid stainless version.

    This Choice Deluxe Chafer is beautiful and fits any occasion. We have used these for weddings and small luncheons, and they are just stylish! The only reason I am giving it a 3 star is because during our last gig, we experienced a leakage in the water pan. Apparently there is hole in it.

    from TRIPLE J Catering. Posted on

    We received our chafer today and all pieces where there. As I was looking at them the gold finish looks very dull and rusty looking, they don't look nothing like the pictures. The edges of the food and water pans were BENT, I USUALLY DON'T HAVE PROBLEMS WITH WEBSTAURANT BUT LATELY I'VE BEEN MISSING PIECES AND GETTING DAMAGED ITEMS.

    from Mr.Roland's Catering, LLC Posted on

    Thank you for your review! We are sorry to hear that the items you purchased arrived with damages. A Customer Solutions Representative will contact you shortly to resolve the issue.

    from June Catering & Floral Design LLC. Posted on

    We have used it 5 times since we purchased 4 for our home. It always makes the dishes look store-bought! It creates a very professional and catered feel to our parties, plus keeps the food warm the whole time. I also tried placing ice cubes in one chafer for the salads, and that was a hit too!

    from Winky's Kusina sa Eskina Posted on

    I use to these chafing dishes all the time when catering events. Not only does the gold trim make them look nice they hold large amounts of food and keeps them nice and hot.

    I just received my chafing dishes today and I love them. Not only were they exactly what i expected, but they arrived way sooner than i expected. They really exceeded my expectations.I would recommend this item and specially ordering it from this seller because they definately deliver. I am very satisfied !!

    Posted on

    not as nice as I expected. I should have known by the price. They are low and lightweight. They don't polish well with stainless polish either. The silver/gold combo looks nice, but they are kind of cheap looking up close and need to be higher off the table. Won't purchase these again.

    from The Savory Spoon Catering Co. Posted on

    This is an entry level chafer that is meant to provide a quality, low price option for those entering into catering. If you are looking for a more durable option then you may want to consider one of our High End Chafers.

    WebstaurantStore Customer Solutions

    This product is amazing. The shine stays no matter what the condition. After being handled for the whole event the fingerprints wiped right off. I would recommend this item to put a little flare to your event.

    from Innovative Catering Posted on

    Very nice chafers for the money. I have compared several in the past and these are far better than any others compared to price and quality.

    A classy and nice looking chafing dish for a bargain price. Not as sturdy as the real expensive chafers but looks the same and worth the price
