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.

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.

    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. Read Less Read More
    Thank you for reviewing these chafers, Matthew. We're sorry they were defective. A Customer Solutions Representative will contact you about this shortly.
    I searched everywhere for this specific design of chafer at an affordable value. Webstaurantstore.com was the most affordable online, and able to get them to me delivered overnight. The quality is great, and they match perfectly with the other chafers I had already. They come with everything, even sterno covers!
    With the term deluxe!I was expecting something of good quality but nah!the stand was a nightmare!one of the legs got broken I tjust so disappointed with the whole set I got
    Thank you for your feedback! We’re sorry you did not prefer this product. For recommendations, please contact our Customer Solutions team.
    Thes chaffing dishes work wonder. once i put water in them with the sternos, didnt even have to check if it was still hot because the steam was still coming off
    Good price for chrome buffet chafer. They definitely work and look better than the wire chafers. But they are the basic ones, nothing fancy yet still makes for a nice presentation. They do scratch easily and need to be wiped and cleaned well and often. The handles seem to lose their shine and finish over time. Keep up with the sterno holders that comes with the chafer, looks better than a sterno just sitting in the hole. I lost mine at events and wish I now had them.
    Great item, good quality and look, very impress with look and quality. I will buy two more in the near future to finishes my set.
    Got this product for many graduation parties we were throwing this last year and it held up. Not in love with the gold and silver but it was nice and got the job done. Recommend if you don't mind the accent gold.
    Very nice Chafer. Made of good quality materials and welds are strong. Definetly worth the upgrad from general chafer, but those are made well as well.
    The Choice Deluxe 8 Qt. Full Size Gold Accent Chafer has a profession look without the cost! The gold accent makes it visually appealing and it keeps food hot for long periods of time.
    No one else is using this style in my area and people were very impressed with their look, they were easy to assemble and cleanup and heated the food quickly!
    This food chafer is beautiful, the gold accent makes this very classy. Very sturdy and I can't wait to use it for an up coming wedding.
    I absolutely love this dish because it can serve double duty. It can be used to serve on large dish or you can place two pans in it to serve two small dishes.
    I bought this product for my mom! Everything was great and arrivedon on time. Nice and great product it was a hit when people saw it!
    I fell in love with this chafer when i opened it. The stainless finish makes it look more expensive than it is. Very well polished, and I love the look. Great use, and display for gatherings.
    This full size Chaffer is amazing. You are able to use full size pans as well as half size pans. They are very durable and the price is right. So glad I found them. I have all shapes.
    This item is very large and it can hold a lot of food. I was able to put a large portion in this chafer so I wouldn't have to keep refilling. Love it.
    I bought three of the chafers. I looked around on the web and this is the place to get them at the best price. Got them right away fast shipping. They look nice I am happy with the product. I bought them for my party and I had that restaurant professional look.
    Simply stunning, everything looked so rich and luxurious with the gold trim. Our event was the talk of the night. We will be ordering more of these high class units!
    I am very happy with the chafer I bought the price was right I will buying more as gift but I wish you had coupon.
