Chafers and Urns
- Do not use anything but the Handy Fuel or other Sterno-type fuel in the burner.
- NEVER light the burner before putting liquid into the water pan, urn, or kettle body. Low flame is sufficient to maintain proper heat.
- Do not put unit on a hot stove or open flame.
- Stainless steel food pans can be used for cooking. They can also be placed in the oven to keep food hot.
- Chafing dish water pans should be filled with hot water. Check water pan when in use to insure sufficient water is contained at all tirnes. DO NOT USE WITHOUT WATER.
Use of Handy Fuel
Pry lid off and set container into the heat cup. Light Handy Fuel and adjust lid of heat cup at approximately ½ open. One can of Handy Fuel should last 2 hours.
Chafing Dish and Urn (Using alcohol burner):
- Use ONLY ALCOHOL in the burner unit. NEVER use lighter fluid, gasoline, or kerosene.
- NEVER light burner unit before putting liquid into water pan or urn. Low flame is sufficient to maintain proper heat. The wick, therefore, should not extend more than ¼” above wick opening.
- Do not put unit on hot stove or open flame.
- Do not overfill. Wipe burner dry before lighting.
- Chafing dish water pans should be filled with hot water. Check water pan when in use to insure sufficient water is contained at all times. DO NOT USE WITHOUT WATER.
- Kettles and urns must always contain at least 1½ cups of liquid while in use.
- For coffee and tea urns: fill with hot coffee or tea before lighting. Burner unit may then be turned up full and lit. Before drawing liquid from urn or kettle, reduce wick raiser down until only the top row of holes is visible (approximately ¼” of wick will be exposed). Leave flame at this level as long as liquid remains in urn or kettle. Shut off burner when liquid is withdrawn.
We suggest you always rent an underliner tray when you rent items that use burners, in order to protect your linens and serving surfaces.
Before returning chafing dish, scrape and wash food pans. Wash chafing dish and urns in lukewarm water and mild detergent. NEVER USE HARSH ABRASIVES.
