Customer Q&A Ask a Question

What is the best way to care for my melamine item?
There are a few simple guidelines you can follow to get the most out of your melamine item. In general, melamine is not microwave or oven safe. You can use a commercial dishwasher to clean your melamine items; however, top-rack only is recommended for residential dishwashing units. Avoid cutting directly on your melamine products with a serrated knife, as this can cause them to warp. For additional guidelines, please refer to the Care and Use sheet included on this page.
Did the bottle design for this candle fuel change over time?
Yes, Sterno improved the bottle structure for safer handling per the Global Harmonized System (GHS) restrictive flow testing requirement. The new design also no longer requires the GHS warning label for a more appealing aesthetic.

Note that these improvements slightly changed the size and shape of the bottle, which may result in it no longer fitting in a container that you previously used.

The Importance of Ambiance for Your Restaurant

Sterno Products explains the importance of ambiance in your restaurant., and how simple yet elegant, tabletop lighting can affect your establishment's mood.

My name is Kenny Bowers and I am the Chef owner of Kenny’s Wood Fired Grill in Addison, Texas. Honestly, there is really three main things to a restaurant, you’ve got the food, you’ve got the service, and then the rest of it is ambiance. Ambiance is everything, because it affects the way the food looks, it creates energy. Lighting is huge, what we do is we shut the blinds to darken everything out, almost like you’re in Vegas, then we lower the lights, and put the little lamps out on the table. When you add the lighting it totally changes the whole mood and ambiance of the restaurant. It has a big effect on it. One of the things I love about table top lighting is the fact that when our restaurants get really busy, and when people sit down at the table, everything is kind of dark around them and once you sit down it becomes very intimate and you almost forget about what is happening around you.

    burn long fuel light candles Easy nice price cartridges holders

    We love ordering items that we use daily from Webstaurant. The Sternos are exactly what you would expect. The price is better than you find at other places.

    from Forest Dunes Golf Club Posted on

    I absolutely love these smokeless Sterno candles. They have no unpleasant odor, like the usual kerosene ones. They burn for the 50hours as promised. Easy to light and relight when needed

    Posted on

    This is the place to buy liquid wax inserts. These burn well, easy to light and cheaper than buying them any where else. Fast easy shipping and great price for product. Really last

    Work good and the webstaurant price is good. These are really big and after using them for a while I realized that the next size down is much more versatile for us but your mileage may vary...

    Don't want to have your candles constantly running out of fuel in the middle of dinner service, try these long lasting liquid candle fuel cartridges!

    from Verdon Restaurants, LLC. Posted on

    I am very please with these 50 hour liquid candle inserts. We don't burn them all day just in the evening. They are truly smokeless and unlike other brands they don't have that Kerosene smell that the cheater brands have when first light and blown out. I hate that small so I was happy to find a cartridge that did not "Stink" up the place. Since we don't burn them all day they last for about 2 weeks which is nice because we are not replacing them all the time. They burn at an even rate so they all can be replaced at the same time without wasting lots of fuel.

    These are exactly what I needed at a great price! They work perfectly with no smoke or odor and last a long time so you don't have to keep changing them out as often.

    from Verdon Restaurants, LLC. Posted on

    We use these in our table sconces, and they are quality products. I appreciate the excellent value of buying them through webrestaurant.com They are still on the pricey side, but worth it if you want to make a nice impression.

    from Bay Pointe Inn Posted on

    long lasting and really clean would recommend to everyone who wants a nice lighting for restaurants and date night no odor and no more wax

    from Yamato Posted on

    We have been using these for about 3 months. They fit perfectly in the SternoCandleLamp 80128 sold on this site. I looked at purchasing re-usable fuel holders because I felt bad about throwing these away when they are finished but, after the cost of the fuel holders, the actual lamp oil is MORE expensive for the same amount of oil that you get in a case of these....and then you have to refill the silly things. Since these cartridges are made of recycleable plastic, I now just pop the top off that holds the wick and recycle the plastic base. They do really burn smokeless and last a long time.

    These come in handy in Florida with the hurricanes. They are a reliable, easy source of light. I always try to keep them on hand.

    These are VERY long lasting cartridges! They fit the SL50 lamps but work well with some other models!! They last long but are not super bright!

    Posted on

    Make sure you know that these are REFILLS that fit into a holder. That being said, the light output is really low. I wouldn't recommend them for emergencies, but rather, as decor or ambience for an area that is already well lit.

    from Accu-Noise Inc. Posted on

    excellent little item. lasts long, clean and easy to light. highly recommended for restaurants. adds a touch of ambience to the place. a good deal.

    from akselrud studio Posted on

    These lamps are a lifesaver. We used to use candles and it was really a hassle. These lamps look nice, burn a long time, & have no odor.
