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.

  • Arrange by 
    Easy to use no bad smells from the fuel and when you are done just put the caps back on to discard. No mess and you don't have to change out during the saving of a meal.
    Hi I like the price on these. That’s a very good deal last up to 2 hours I haven’t tried but I will to make sure it’s the 2 hours it says.
    Great for catering jobs that need only 2 hours of heat. Keeps the food warm for longer in the chafer, easy to pop off top and easy to light.
    Very good, I received it at the estimated time, I still do not try them, but they look very good, I hope they work for my buffet!
    I have just become partial to the Gel. The tops are easy to open, has a pretty accurate burn time, minimum if not at all leakage. I have ordered this product a number of times.
    These chafers are excellent for keeping food warn for a short period of time. These specifically keep your food warm for two hours. The price is awesome and these are great to have on hand.
    These Gel Chafing Fuels work well for our catering needs. We have ordered them a couple of times and will order again. They last for 2 hrs. and sometimes a little bit longer. They are easy to open and convenient for fitting nicely in the chafing holders that came with our chafers. They are easy to light and we love the convenience of the 12 pk. option. Would definitely recommend this product.
    This has a really good price point on it which will be great for using our catering jobs these work really good to have a nice hot flame
    I ordered this chafing gel as back up plan! They work very well and in all honestly I am glad i ordered them! I now only use Choice Fuel Gel. It seems as if they last forever.
    These chafing fuels were great lasted the time stated. The price was cheaper thay any online or brick and mortar store. I would definitively order again.
    these were purchase to use for event ..these seem to burn a little faster ..unsure if it was 2 hours exact ..but not bad for the price recommend on not so cold items to heat
    This chafing fuel lasts a little longer than the stated timeframe. We like to use the gel fuel because it burns clean and doesn't leave the burn marks under the chafing pans.
    We purchased this form of heating fuel for our three chafing pan sets...the gel form burns well and does a great job keeping dish warm...pretty clean burning too, which I was worried about but they did a great job...very happy with the price too.
    i bought choice gel chafing fuel methanol .and i use it for warming food and boiling the water to make tea .even to cook small meal .its hard to find it in stores.THANKS WEB.
    Great for the price. These are the cheapest found online and in store after searching multiple places and sites. Using for a smors bar at wedding reception.
    The 12 pack of chafer fuel is GREAT! what a bargain for my clients, they loved the fact that I was able to give them a great overall deal on a combo of chafing dishes and chafer fuel!
