Customer Q&A Ask a Question

What is the main difference between chafer fuel cells with twist-off metal caps and fuel cells with stem wicks and plastic caps?
Once lit, chafer fuel cells with twist-off metal caps provide a quick, safe, and easy way to extinguish the flame at the end of events. The cap can simply be placed over the flame to snuff it out. Chafer fuel cells with stem wicks and plastic caps require a separate snuffer paddle, regulator, or saucer to extinguish the flame.

Choice Chafer Accessories

Take a look at what accessories Choice has to offer for chafers!

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.

    This fuel is very good. The container is a great size for long parties that have food that needs to be kept warm. The flame is also a nice size that wont burn or cool down your food.
    Great price for the amount you receive, I wish I had started purchasing earlier instead of using the big box stores. They last 2 hours and burn very hot.
    I use these for all of my caters. Very very reasonably priced and they get the job done. I never have any problems with his fuel. They light quickly too.
    We use A lot of sternos for our catering. Found these there cheap and work good. Even stays lit outside with slight breaze. Will be reordering soon
    True to the product description, each fuel tin lasts exactly two hours. Under stable conditions, the chafer stayed plenty hot. Though these do not blow out in moderately windy conditions, there is significant heat lost. I will have to figure out a wind block for my chafers on windy days at the market.
    Great deal on chafing fuel. I bought this case so I wouldn't have to place another order for a long time! This fuel is going to be great for our new chafing units also purchased here on Webstaurant!
    Excellent product. About $15 cheaper than if you buy from your food supplier. Local food distributors want to overcharge for these kinds of nonfood products.
    This fuel is great if you're setting up a spread of food and you need it to stay warm for a couple hours. Set it up under your chafing stands, light the gel, and use the lid to adjust how much of the flame is exposed.
    This chafing fuel is great not only for the price point, but also for the burn time and BTUs that it outputs. I was a diehard user of Sterno branded fuel before.. Not any more! Choice is my go to!
    Great chafing dish fuel with a convenient 2 hour window. Those 2 hours are sufficient for just about all of our catering needs. No more keeping 6 hour cans for other caterings without knowing how long they're going to last.
    Excellent Chafing Gel Fuel! I would definitely purchase again. Used for parties. Chafing Gel kept food hot and gel burned consistently. Great product for price.
    I used this choice ethanol fuel to warm up my desserts. Does not product any smells that's the good part. It last long and does not go out easily. Love it!
    The Ethanol Gel Chafing Dish Feul worked great for heating our chafers. They lasted as expected and kept the food warm. i would recommend this product to anyone who caters.
    Very happy with product quality. Margins tight on most products but your price on sale recently unbeatable. My only regret is I did not buy more!!
    These chafing fuel are great for the price! The lids pop right off. As long as they are stored in a cool place they are great and won't dry out.
    This is an economical fuel that works well for all of our catering needs and lasts long enough for all of our drop off and full service catering orders.
    We used these at our wedding. We had about 11 chafing dishes and used 2 gel fuels per dish. It kept the food steaming hot for several hours and had extra fuels left over that we will use at our next event.
    These worked GREAT. We had warm food for three hours! NO smell, NO mess...Just did what it was supposed to. And...it last more than 2 hours! Will definitely purchase again. These are a great price, especially if you purchase a full case. One note: did have an issue with shipping but Webstaurant was awesome! Thanks!!!
    I used these for the first time and am now planning on always useing these. They are so easy to light and they burn for a long time. And a great price too!
    We really like this fuel. Clean burning and gets very hot. Seemed to burn out quickly so next time, we will adjust the flame more efficiently. Great price too.
