Customer Q&AAsk a Question

Can I put the chafer's food pan in the oven?
Yes, the food pan included with this chafer can safely be used in the oven.
My stainless steel item has fingerprints and scratches and I can't seem to get it clean. What can I do?
Try using a microfiber polishing cloth. You may not need to use any chemicals to get rid of the scratches and fingerprints. If they are not easily removed by the dry cloth, our Noble Chemical stainless steel cleaner should do the trick!

food vollrath chafers lid lids products america chafer drying great

Customer Reviews


These used to be much nicer. It's clear they're being made in a new factory without much quality control. They are still lovely, but I had 4 problems right out of the box. Scratched lids, dents, defective coating on lid holders and one unit was completely missing a lid! My second bad experience with Vollrath products this year, after 30 years of offering some of the best quality FS products in America. Webstaurant is going to solve these problems for me, but these will be my last purchase from the Vollrath company. Sure wish they were still made in America!

We appreciate your review, Brent. We wish this Vollrath 46503 4 Qt. Orion Lift-Off Small Round Chafer would have worked out for you. Our Customer Solutions team will remain in contact with you about this.

Our office uses this 4qt chafer for soups and sauces. Our main reason for purchasing this is the lid is able to sit in a holder attachment. We hate when guest have to find a spot to place the lids of chafers. We would have preferred a small roll top but this does the job just fine!

These units are still shinny and new after a lot of use great product, great price. Once again I am very happy with my items

Steven R. from Steven Riccardi Enterprises on 04/05/2011

I have used other small round chafers and found h=the food drying out quickly, with the vollrath samll round chafer it kept the food at just the right temperature for the duration of time needed without drying out the food or scorching the bottom of the food. Highly recommend Vollrath products.
