Building a good buffet line, whether it is for breakfast or dinner, takes good chafing dishes and an assortment of sizes to fit your menu items. Most of these dishes have additional pans you can purchase so you can have your surplus food ready to go when you need it fast. All are sleek and stylish and make a lovely display.
In fact these dishes are a convenient and reliable way to keep foods warm when serving food to guests may take place over a long period of time. The bottom pan functions as the boiler and it holds the water. The top pan, or the blazer, will hold your foods. Stainless steel dishes also have a wire frame for support when they are in use. The frame holds the stainless steel chafing dishes above the table surface. This allows a heating source to be placed under these pans. The heat can be controlled and as a result you are able to warm the water to the desired temperature.
