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.

Choice Deluxe Chafing Dishes

Check out the style the Choice Deluxe chafers can bring to your event. With a durable construction and sleek design, it is the perfect choice when you need to display hot food with ease.

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.

    coffee Great hot events urn price urns Beautiful more CLASSY
  • Arrange by 
    This is such a beautiful addition to my equipment. I use it for my coffee bar at weddings and events and it makes a beautiful statement. While it is intended for hot beverages it can also be used for water or tea. When using for coffee be very careful when removing the lid, it gets extremely hot.
    Very nice looking, but not as heavy as our original urns. The price is perfect so if we do dent them, we can easily replace them.
    This is a gorgeous chafer, it is decorative and functional and is a screaming good deal. It makes those chilly outdoor events much more appealing.
    We've used these beautiful coffee urns for several years now and they never fail to add a touch of class to coffee service stations. We started with one, and I was so impressed with the quality and style that we just kept "adding as needed" to our inventory of presentation tools. They have a classic appeal and easily fit in with the newer, more contemporary trend as well. Great style at a great price- we'll never go back to using a corded electric urn on the stations when this urn still keeps the coffee hot, is easier to refill during extended service and looks so much better.
    This urn has style and class without a price tag to match. I've used it for several events to hold coffee or tea. Holds hot, just like you'd expect it to. It compliments my chafing dishes, as they have the gold accents too. Nice way to pull everything together.
    What a great look this brings to our events. Our clients love the look, and we love the easy clean up and storage this great product has.
    Presentation of the item looks great. However, when we first unpackaged the item, the plastic used to protect the gold trim was difficult to remove. We also experienced a small leak from the handle, do not fill past the handle to avoid that problem.
    Thank you for your review! We are sorry to hear that the chafer urn you purchased had a small leak. A Customer Solutions Representative will be in contact with you to resolve the issue.
    Very nice looking coffee urns. We also use this for iced tea. Makes our coffee service area very elegant . Make sure to open top after filling carefully because it gets very hot. Would recommend.
    I am an event planner, so I always look for products that make events run smoother. I used this for Christmas Brunch at our home, and set it up right at the entry with mugs and all the other coffee accompaniments. Our 30 guests loved having something hot waiting for them at the door and I never had to refill for the rest of the day. One less thing to worry about for the busy hostess. Just be mindful to check to make sure your heat did not burn out. AWESOME AND CLASSY PRODUCT. we plan to purchase several more for hot water and cocoa.
    This coffee urn is great for parties and banquets! The classy stainless steel tank is beautifully accented by the gold plater legs! Keeps the coffee and and it's such a great value!
    Beautiful and elegant coffee urn. My family has one for family parties. The three gallons is great to make cup for large groups of people!
    This is an excellent Urn, definitely a great deal on the price as well. The stainless steel has a sleek finish that is great for any banquet room! The only down side is the heat so be very careful if you're changing it out.
    Price was great, product is very good. HOWEVER you should be aware that this urn's lid gets very very HOT and should never be lifted with bare hand after being lit.
    These coffee chafers are well worth the money. I priced others that were far more expensive but not as good looking. Also the faucet did not leak. You will love using this chafer
