How to choose the best roll top chafing dishes

Why are Roll Top Chafers so Useful?

Roll Top Chafers are very useful because they allow you to keep food warm and fresh. They keep food away from the environment and they also allow guests to serve themselves, meaning you will never have to worry about how you are going to keep your guests fed, while simultaneously thinking about food hygiene.

Are Roll Top Chafers Better?

The chafer you choose will largely depend on your application. We stock a vast range of roll top chafers as well as stocking rectangular chafers, so you can find one that ultimately suits your every requirement and more.

Why is Stainless Steel the Main Material in a Roll Top Chafer?

We like to make sure that any chafers we stock are made out of stainless steel or aluminum, as this is the best metal for heat retention, not to mention that it is able to withstand rigorous use in a commercial setting. We believe that our chafers can last for years on end.
