great chafer alternative buffet events heater heats hot money needed

Customer Reviews


We purchased this to replace one that had gone bad. It arrived promptly and installed really easily. We were happy to be able to purchase this separately, it saved a lot of money not having to replace the entire chafer.

Not as great an item as I had hoped. The base is really large and doesn't fit in all chafer holes. It is handy to have it all in one piece and heats very quickly.

Caryn R. from Heirloom Cuisine on 11/17/2016

This unit is quite expensive and it never really kept the chafer hot. I used it for 2 weeks and had to purchase a water pan.

Works really great for our Buffet. Heats up really well. We tried the alternative, less expensive Chaffing Heater made in China with no success. This was the better way to go.

Linda J. from JMF on 08/01/2015

Great alternative to flame sternos and much safer. Seams to do the job just as efficiently. Also great as a back up when needed, especially for places that don't allow fire.

really, really great way to keep chafing dishes hot. If you have the capacity to fuel a whole buffet line with these, do it. it will take a while, but it will save you money and they don't need replacing half way through an event!

Matthew M. on 04/05/2013

This electric chafer heater is great! We bring this to all our catered events. It's brillant for out door use because the wind can't blow it. Great deal!!
