Customer Q&A Ask a Question

There are 16 cups in a gallon. Why do coffee urns with similar gallon capacities have different cup amounts listed?
Coffee urn manufacturers use different size cups to state the output of their urns, commonly 3.5 oz., 5 oz., or 8 oz. To figure out how many cups you’ll get using your existing dinnerware, simply convert the urn’s gallons to ounces and divide by the ounce size of your coffee cups or mugs! Remember, there are 128 oz. in a gallon.
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 brew coffee in this urn?
No, coffee urns and coffee chafer urns are designed to hold hot coffee at appropriate serving temperatures and cannot be used to brew coffee.

Chafer Fuel Handling Tips

Check out this video to learn some vital tips about handling chafers and chafer fuel!

Serving hot food at a buffet, breakfast bar, or off-site venue requires efficient, reliable supplies. Choice offers a great line of chafers perfect for these and other applications, with economy, mid-range, and high-end options to choose from. Choice Economy chafers are made of stainless steel and come with a frame, pan, and lift-off lid. Plus, each frame features built-in side handles, which make transporting the chafer easy. For a more stylized buffet, Choice Classic chafers are the perfect option! Each dish is made of 18/8 stainless steel with a mirror finish, making the Classic series both durable and great for formal events and venues. These mid-range chafers are designed with elegant features, from ornate lid handles to beveled legs. Each chafer also includes a lift-off lid, frame, food pan, and water pan. Choice Deluxe and Choice Supreme chafers are other mid-range lines that deliver a different aesthetic. They’re made of stainless steel with eye-catching, gold or chrome accents. These accents add a touch of elegance while keeping the design sleek with straight lines and rounded edges. The stainless steel construction features a mirrored finish, and the round, oval, and rectangular shapes ensure versatility for any business. As an added benefit, most chafers include a roll-top lid. The Choice Deluxe line even offers soup chafers, with lift-off lids, and are designed to accommodate sauces, soups, and glazes. Like Choice Economy and Choice Classic chafers, food pans, and water pans come standard. For high-end applications, Choice Supreme offers induction chafers that boast glass tops and soft-close lids; these are perfect for use with portable or drop-in induction ranges. Standard Choice Supreme chafers are even available with a pine wood stand and built-in fuel drawer.

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.
