Customer Q&A Ask a Question

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.

    Buy these. I first hesitated to buy these because I wasn't sure of the quality or even the need for 4 qt. I used these in our catering business they bring an elegance to any event.
    This product works great for serving small groups. The price of the equipment is very reasonable and it keeps the product hot and ready to serve. We love to use it for dips and appetizers.
    I purchased this for my sons wedding. Well made chafer for 1/2 size trays. I did have to contact Custer service for one item to be replaced. Very pleasant to deal with on getting my replacement.
    The half chafer works perfect for small parties and deliveries. Instead of having to use a large chafer with two half pans this makes the buffet look much nicer.
    very good catering equipment , stainless steel that wont rust. 4 quarts enough to serve for your party. or just double the quantity to fit your serve needs.
    This is a well-priced chafing dish that works as it should. Keeps products warm without drying them out too much or burning them. We used the dish successfully for Apple Crisp and Brownies so far.
    I bought these for my daughter's engagement party. I was worried about keeping the food warm throughout the party and these worked really good. Love the smaller size for side dishes. I even put ice in one of them to keep salads cold.
    Great Chafing dishes for basic use. Easy to store and stackable. Definitely an economy use chafing dish. Durable for the price, have lasted for over 3 years
    These are the best things I ever purchase. I used them for my husband and kids birthday parties and Graduation and anniversary ... love everything about them.
    Product arrived quickly. Everything was in excellent condition. No bent parts or dings. Won't be used until the end of October for my wedding. These things look professional.
    These are great for our monthly catering event. They are very sturdy, even on rickety tables. The only complaint is that they don't stack very easily.
    Its great for the price, but only the half pans that come with it fit inside nicely. My standard 1/2 pans do not sit all the way in the chafer
    Thank you for your review, Katie! We are sorry this Choice Economy 4 Qt. Half Size Stainless Steel Chafer has not worked well for you. A Customer Solutions Representative will contact you soon!
    Love love love these! They are so cute but also sturdy, easy to transport and made out of quality materials. Would definitely purchase again, although I won't need to for quite a while due to the quality.
    these chafers are perfect for anything but i love to use them for my dips and to keep appetizers warm and they are great for the price
    The small change is an excellent product that my client loves to rent. It keeps hot sauces and we use them for other decoration projects.
    If your just starting a catering business these are great for the price. They clean up easy and have a great look. Id buy them again.
    The Choice brand economy style four quart chafer is terrific and well made. The small size chafer is great for smaller events and does a great job keeping the food warm. The stainless steel makeup is great and makes it easy to keep clean.
    Great set for those applications where a full chafer isn’t necessary. Elegant appearance, yet economical. Complete with food pan, water pan, lid and stand. Ready to use! Somewhat confused that this product is more expensive than the equivalent full size one, but still a great value.
