Types of Chafer
It is easily to see chafer being widely used in different events (e.g. catering events, parties, banquet) and locations (restaurants, hotels ). Different types of chafer fits with different events and locations.
Belows are the three main types:
Induction: It uses device like electric heating plate. Since no open flame is involved, it is safe and widely used. Excellent for outdoor use.
Electric: It connects with electrical outlet instead of flame to heat the water in chafer pan. Same as induction chafer, no open flame is involved. Excellent for outdoor use.
Fuel: It uses fuel can (like chafer burners) to heat the water in chafer pan and in turn to keep food hot / warm. Fuel can contains either flammable chafer gel or liquid. It is suitable for venues where electrical outlet is not available.
