Every experienced caterer knows that high quality catering supplies help produce amazing meals for catered events. Though disposable supplies are often the most handy, they don’t give the presentation that most clients require when meals are served. Professional chafing dishes are some of the most versatile pieces of restaurant equipment, and are essential for many catering jobs.
6 Unique Chafing Dish Uses
1. Maintaining Food Temperature
Preparing food in advance and transporting it to a third party location to be served does not have to be worrisome. Chafing dishes have been used for centuries as a reliable way to keep food warm. Every caterer needs high quality catering supplies, including chafing dishes.
2. Serving Fondues or Sauces
A chafing dish is a great way to present and serve sauces, marinades and desserts that need consistent temperature for self-serving conditions. Fondue must be kept at the right temperature to avoid clumping, this is a staple at most catered events for instant application on desserts. A quality chafing dish is the most effective and aesthetically pleasing way to serve this dessert to a large group of people.
3. Seafood Presentations
When properly displayed, seafood can attract even the most diehard meat lovers. The depth and size of chafing dishes allows for various types of seafood entrees or appetizers to be arranged in a unique way that will appeal to partygoers.
4. Elegant Salad Displays
Party guests may give salads a second glance when they are presented in a unique way. This can be a simple, yet elegant way to remind people that there is more to salad than just lettuce. A large chafing dish filled with ice is the perfect way to keep salads chilled, eliminating the need for additional catering supplies.
5. Bun Warmer
Guests often expect to have hot sandwiches served at catered events. Putting buns in a chafer and allowing them to steam and stay warm offers an easy, sophisticated way to keep buns and rolls fresh.
6. Buffet Serving
Your catering company may not have the budget to hire extra staff. Allowing guests to serve themselves is easy when you use chafing dishes for buffet meals. The wide base, cool handles, and optional roll top cover provide safe and easy serving.
