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.

    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.
    We prefer this chafing fuel over any others we have tried. It burns effectively and doesn't leak like others we have used. Highly recommend this!
    these are awesome. especially for the price. We do hundreds of catering jobs and these really allow us to keep buffet hot and they last actually a little longer then 2 hours. Worth it!! TRUST ME
    These are one of my favorites when I cater, they light every time and are perfect for short events. We use daily for our factories and office caterings.
    Great product. Very easy to purchase. same if not better quality than name brand product, and lasts as long as it states. Nice to find a gel product that works for less.
    We've used tens of thousands of cans of chafing fuel. This is the best and the price is 1/3 what we pay from our distributors. I only wish we could get the product with free shipping.
    Excellent product that performs adequately. I would recommend to buy these by the case and to have enough of these at hand. I would recommend these to colleagues.
    the lids are easy to open if you use the side of another stereo. not too loud when opening either. we prefer not to have labels visible and these are easy to remove.
    Great low cost short burning chafing dish fuel. I have tested one and these do burn for two hours, which is much better than other brand's I have used in the past. Ethanol also burns cleaner than alternatives.
    this chafing dish fuel is great for our catering events. It helps keep our food hot and ready to be served as delicious as it is when it leaves the kitchen.
    Excellent product. I use these all the time very good price. Thank you for such a great product. These are great for catered events, family gaterings and churce event.
    We stock up on these for private events. These are easy to open, lights quick, burns as expected: both in length and temperature. Containers stack neatly.
    We purchased these and were surprised. They lasted a bit longer than 2 hours which makes these even better. The price was also not bad.
    This choice chafing fuel does exactly as it should. It keeps our food warm for the duration of our catering events. It is easy to light and stays lit.
    These chafing dish fuel will work great for our caterings. Buying in bulk and from Webstaurant is so much more inexpensive than anywhere else I can get them. They do not last the full 2 hours, but do appear to burn a little longer and hotter than the methanol chafing dish fuel.
    I iike the gel sterno because it doesn't leak everywhere, but you can't relight it more than once, so there's some waste. If you're planning to use it for the full 2 hours this is a great option!
    Wish I would have purchased these sooner! Great quality, consistently last at least 2 hours, and so much more economical than what I had been purchasing locally. Will definitely keep stocking these!
    This fuel is perfect for our buffets. They run 2 hours long & we always light the fuel at least 30 to 45 minutes before they start & haven't run out of fuel yet!
    We do a lot of catering orders and more and more people are wanting chafing dishes. I would recommend this fuel brand as it actually lasts the 2 hours it says it does!
