What are the Different Types of Chafing Dishes?
Chafing Dishes are used to keep food hot on the buffet table, and come in a variety of attractive sizes and shapes. They range in capacity from 4 to 10.5 quarts. They also come with a variety of covers: hinged, removable and roll-top.
Chafing Dish Tip
Removable and Roll-top chafing dish covers are best-suited for buffet display.
Chafing dishes with hinged tops can be difficult to arrange in a buffet, and when handled by guests have the potential to create a mess.
