At Global FSE, all of our chafing dishes are designed with the user in mind; they are fully portable and free-standing they are ready to be used in any environment. All are designed using gastronorm sizing making them flexible to accept different sized pans to present more than one food stuff.
We have a choice of polished or mirrored finish and oval or rectangular designs. Dependant on your budget you can choose standard fitting lids as well as roll top designs. We also stock a wide range of chafing fuel with burning times up to 6 hours long.
Chafing dishes are, and always have been, synonymous with luxury. The use of chafing dishes dates back as far as the first century AD where bronze chafing dishes were found in the ruins of Pompeii.
They were very popular in Roman times where they would have been used in huge extravagant banquets for the emperors of Greece and Rome and are mentioned in historical letters dating back to 1520.
This fine example of catering equipment has clearly stood the test of time as they are still widely used for mostly the same uses to this very day.
Parallel to the use in ancient banquets, today’s use of chafing dishes is primarily found in buffets. Although employed for the same task as years ago the modern chafing dish has undergone a slight upgrade.
Chafing dishes are no longer made of bronze or iron but now modern chafing dishes are constructed from stainless steel and use a simple water bath and heating the water ensures that food is kept hot with no direct heat on the base of the container; making them look attractive whilst losing none of the functionality.
We stock a wide range of chafing dishes of varying designs and sizes.
A chafing dish directly lends itself primarily to cooking a certain foods like lasagne’s and casseroles, which can be cooked directly in the chafing dish and then place over the fuel tins to keep warm until it is ready to be eaten.
But this is by no means the only way they can be used, any food can be cooked and then placed in a chafing dish to keep warm from eggs and bacon in a breakfast buffet to pasta dishes to curries.
For complete flexibility we have a range of electric chafing dishes which just require a 13 amp socket. Global FSE offer chafing dishes from the simple units for all budgets; and with free delivery available on many orders there has never been a better time to buy new chafing dishes for your business!
