Chafer Accessories Review

Accessorize your Choice chafer with our full, 1/2, and 1/3 size food pans! Also check out our 3 types of chafer fuel, convenient microfiber cleaning cloths, and even our refillable long tip lighters.

Another question we get sometimes is whether or not you can use different sized pans in these chafers. And the answer is yes, you can half size and 1/3 size pans. Now, the unit comes with a full sized 2 1/2" deep pan, which I’ll remove, but as long as you’re using 2 1/2" deep pans, you don’t want them any deeper than that or else you’ll be into the water in the water pan. But you can see those half size pans fit in there just right, and if you take this off, we can see that you can put the 1/3 size pans in there as well. Besides being able to purchase different sized food pans from us, you can also purchase different types of fuel. We have the wet fuel, the gel fuel, and we even have environmentally friendly fuel. We also have these microfiber cleaning cloths; these are the perfect thing for polishing the chafer, sometimes they do so well you don’t even need a chemical polish. And we also have these long tip, refillable lighters available as well. Well thank you for watching, and if you have any questions, please feel free to use our live chat button.

How To Use A Chafer

Watch as Steve demonstrates the proper way to use your chafer, from how much water you will need to when you should light the fuel. And remember, a chafer is only for keeping food warm, not for cooking it!

And now to take a look at how we’re going to use the chafer. The first thing you’re going to do once you have it set up and your water pan in your frame is you’re going to fill the water pan with about 1 inch of very hot tap water. This will allow the temperature to come up a lot quicker. So once you do that, cover the chafer with the lid. Open up your fuel cell and place it in your fuel holder along with the fuel holder cover, which you should have open. Don’t light this until you’ve placed the fuel cell underneath the chafer. Then you can light it with a long-tipped lighter. Let it come up to temperature for about 20 minutes and then you’re ready for your food. The important thing about your food is that it has to be hot going in; a chafer is not designed to cook your food. It’s designed to keep it warm once it’s already cooked. I’m going to take the lid off, get my hot asparagus, and there we are. We’re ready to serve. Thank you for watching, and if you have any questions, please feel free to use our live chat button.

Choice Chafer Fuel

In this video, Corporate Chef Matt Schuler explains the best options to suit your needs when it comes to chafer fuel. From gel fuel or wick fuel, or fuel that burns up to 6 hours, Choice Chafer fuel has just what you need for every occasion!

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. These charts will help you make a better buying decision! As always, click on the chat button for further questions regarding Choice brand chafing fuels. We hope this video helped you make the right “choice” for your foodservice application!!

    pan pans water nice chafer decent dishes fit full Great

    The price is right on these water pans, and they preform as expected. That being said, be careful about putting these pans away when they are not thoroughly dry! We have spent countless hours trying to "pry" apart stuck together water pans due to wetness. Pans have been bent, thrown away, due to trying to pry wet pans apart a few days later when we use the chafing dishes after sitting.

    from Peppercini's Catering Posted on

    We appreciate your review, Jason! We always recommend these pans are fully dry before stacking them, for ease of separation in the future.

    These water pans were a direct fit for my chafing dishes. They will fit a full pan as well as a half pan and still have room for water. Great addition for my uses.

    Nice water pans, fit our knock-down metal chafers perfectly. Paired this up with the roll top chafer cover and it worked like a gem. Used to 1/2 pans in one of them and then a full steam pan in the other with smaller loaf pans to sample more products at a food show. Highly recommend and will order again.

    Decent product, lighter than ones I purchased at a club store in 1999. Be careful, as when they nest they can be difficult to separate, and they are thin enough they might bend.

    This pan is a good value and gets a lot of use in our kitchen. The only down side is that the edges around the rim are extremely sharp and will cut your fingers.

    from LUV Ice Cream Posted on

    Perfect for buffet and catering! These are a decent light to mid weight pan at a decent price. Purchased as a replacement for the ones that came with my chafing dishes. They are better quality than the original so we are happy with the purchase.

    A perfect replacement, the 4"Deep full size chafer water pan. We use this for hunting! During Deer season this is the perfect size for processing our deer out in the woods.

    from HJS SERVICES Posted on

    This is a nice size pan. This is not a heavy built pan but still good to use for buffet and catering needs. Overall it is good.

    this 4" deep full- size chafer water pan is a solid and strong pan. and the price cant be beat. overall a great product that last.

    We use these chafing pans in our wrought-iron chafers. They look great, are sturdy, and stack pretty well. Only downside is they are sometimes hard to pull apart from each other.

    from The Delish Dish Posted on

    Ordered as a replacement water pan for one of our chafer dishes. It fit right in with no problem. Has a decent weight, nice shine, and will certainly be useful for us.

    Nice gage, just what we wanted and needed. it is has to write about a pan only but what else can we say. It was perfect for our needs...

    from A&C Wholesale Distributors Posted on

    I have to say that these are great for some of our small wholesale brownie orders. None of our products ever stick and the stainless steel never warps!

    Posted on

    Nice pan, not flimsy, clean,easy to clean,and does its job overall for the money a nice pan compared to others would like to see these a little cheaper though

    Posted on

    I rate this product 4 stars, upon unpacking it i became increasingly impressed with the spectacular design; so much so i purchased an additional eight more pieces (ranging in sizes) . During the transport some were damaged,as a credit to the Webrestuarant Store, all damaged items were replaced without hassell. During these hard econmmic times it's good to know you can trust a company to stand by their products.
