Ask any caterer and they will tell you exactly how vital chafing dishes are to their business. When serving food buffet-style, it is essential to insure that the meal is kept warm and presentable. Update International's 4-qt. stainless steel rectangular Continental chafer (CC-9P) will do exactly that, allowing a caterer to focus back on the quality of the food instead of whether it's being properly heated. This chafer features 18/8 stainless steel with a mirror-polished finish. It is heated using canned fuel, which is great in the event that no electrical outlets are nearby. Its Bakelite lid handle protects the user from heat. This model is half size and has welded legs.
