Chafing dishes need heat in order to keep the water pans hot and food ready for serving. Our chafing dish fuel is made of a variety of types, like wick fuel, ethanol gel, methanol gel, and other fuel types. Chafing fuel is used in a variety of settings, like buffet lines, restaurants, catered or outdoor events, and more. Wick fuel is thinner than gel fuel and can spill easier. Wick fuel is adjustable, which gives you a variety of warming options in your chafing pans. Gel fuel is thicker, which means there's almost no chance it will spill, which means they are safer for users and customers. Depending on what your needs are in your restaurant, stocking more than one type of fuel is a good idea. Beverage urns and other vessels designed to keep food warm need low temperature fuel while chafing dishes and other apparatus' need hotter burning fuels.
Foodservice Superstore offers a wide variety of different chafing fuels that will meet the needs of any caterer, restaurant, or other establishment. Our chafing fuels have different burn times, depending on the size of the wick or the burn hole. We offer top brands for chafing fuel like Sterno and Hollowick, with fuel burn times ranging from 2 hours to 6 hours.
