A great wedding product these chafing stands makes self catering easy!
Our disposable chafing stands come in two sizes, some colors, and are too good to dispose of. If you take reasonable care of them, and don’t leave them behind on the job, they should last a long time.
Even if it’s not a large event we suggest you buy the full size chafing stand as it offers more flexibility. You can always put two or three different items in the full size stand by using two half size steam table (stm.tbl.) pans or one half size and two one third sizes (not pictured), instead of one full size pan. But just keep in mind that if you are trying to fill up a space, using a number of half size chafing stands gives a fuller illusion.
In either case, we always recommend buying two food pans for each item you are serving so that you can bring out a full pan and take away the less than full pan to be re-filled in the kitchen…it just looks nicer.
You will only need one water pan per Chafing stand, even if you use two half (or one half and two one thirds ) size food pans in the full size stand.
Remember, always heat the water on the stove FIRST, as it saves a lot of time. You might want to assign someone the duty of checking to see that your water pans are full at all times as clients hate scorched food!
To make transporting food less worrisome, we suggest the investment of lids (reusable) for your food pans. But, if you need to keep the contents of the pans hot or cold, I recommend your investing in the ThermalCor Insulated Carriers. It maintains food temperature for hours, is lightweight, stacks better, stores flat and can be wiped down and reused at least 30 times.
The large size holds 2 full size or 4 half size steamtable pans.
The small size holds 1 full size or 2 half size steamtable pans.
Both sizes have foam center insulation and are covered inside and outside with Reflective Radiant barrier.
STERNO… Just bring extras. One never knows when an event will start late and, don’t forget to communicate to your staff where you are storing the tops so they will be handy to partially cover the sterno if you need to lower the heat.
NOTE: Fantastic, fire resistant skirts. Makes our disposable stand as nice as the real thing!
