Kanhaiyalal Hotelwares Chafing dishes are serving pieces used to keep your food at an enjoyable and servable temperature, regardless of how long the buffet line is, or how late the pre-meal ceremony runs. Kanhaiyalal Hotelwares chafing dishes are metal pans inserted into metal stands with lids. Water is placed between the pan and the stand and a source of heat is activated from below, to keep your food warm, without risking drying it out.
How do you heat a chafing dish?
Kanhaiyalal Hotelwares Chafing dishes come in a variety of shapes and sizes, from rectangular to oval and can have hinged, lid, and roll off covers. They also vary in the way they can be heated. They are most commonly heated or gel fuel and a wick placed inside of a metal dish below the chafer. The metal dish serves as a perfect conductor of heat for the low flame below. Alternatively, electric chafers can be plugged into a wall socket, enabling the dish and its contents to enjoy even, continuous electric heating. A most innovative chafing dish heating method is the drop-in induction warmer, which eliminates the need to add water under the chafing dish, enabling a more even distribution of heat over a longer period of time.
