An Economy Chafer Can Hold All of Your Guests... and Their Food

Mar 25, 2008
How many times have you been to a party, only to arrive at the buffet that's been picked over long before you got there? Heck, the serving utensils are already gone and the chefs are packing up. What kind of fun is that? Instead of throwing a shindig that runs out before your guests do, you need to start looking at an economy chafer to fit all of your serving needs. But what can you expect from an economy chafer?

Space, Space, and More Space

Unlike the little serving platters that you put on your table, an economy chafer can hold an entire roast without breaking a sweat. Well, of course, it's supposed to sweat a little because it's also keeping your food warm. With a place for a solid fuel source, this chafer is going to not only hold an entire main course (and could easily fit some of your smaller guests -- you can try this after the fuel can is out and you've all hit the bar a few times), but it will also make sure that you don't run out of dinners for the back tables.

Hot Stuff Stays Hot

With a tightly sealed top, your economy chafer is also going to make sure that each bite is hot enough to pass inspection... by your discerning mother. Though people will be pulling off the top to serve themselves, the deep dish is going to keep meats hot and even your larger portions of side dishes bubbling. You might also want to try out some hot desserts in the chafer like a nice fruit crumble or even a chocolate fondue.

More Ways to Use a Chafer... Without Getting Burned

But you can also use that economy chafer for serving up salads and other cool dishes. Of course, you don't want to use the fuel then, but when you put ice trays underneath the chafer, things can stay fresh and cold for hours.

You can also use the chafer for dry items that you simply want to present in a more decorative manner than using plastic plates (not that your decorative ones aren't lovely, of course). Line up cookies and breads in the chafer to make an instant impression with your guests.

Finally, you can use the economy chafer as a backup ice cube tray if you're serving drinks that need to be on the rocks. Just be sure to add an ice scoop or tongs to make sure you guests know that you're not serving them ice chips as the main course.
