Customer Q&A Ask a Question

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!
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.

    food chafers lids chafer drying great round small vollrath lid
  • Arrange by 
    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
    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.
