Sterno cans for chafing dishes burn time?
 
Can anyone tell me how long a sterno can will burn for?

TIA

The ones that Rapids sells say up to six hours I believe.

mredowling 06-17-2009 04:47 PM

yup 6 hrs.
they make a longer time ones but not worth the money.

Goose 06-17-2009 05:53 PM

Thanks gents, thats plenty of time then.

I imagine that the 6 hrs. is for non windy conditions. Wind or fans etc. can greatly reduce that time IMHO.

Mine burn for over 5 hours, little cans seem to have almost half of the liquid in them left.
I buy mine at Sams Club.

Look at the Sterno. Some are 2 hours and some are 6. It will say on the package.

Sam's here has the best price on 6 hour. 2 hour are too expensive.

I never get the 6 hours as advertised. that said, the 2 hr type last about one hour.

the one I get at costco last for days.. The farkin wind keeps blowing them out and they dont burn when they're not lit. :)

I hate trying to keep the sternos with leftovers. The farking can tends to leak no matter how tight I screw the lid on.

And then I'm the one trying to unscrew the lid that you used every ounce of might to screw on!!

I use the cans at Smart & Final (2 & 4 hour). Of course, they don't last that long. I have a hard time seeing the use for a 6 hour sterno.

Has anyone looked into getting the electric or propane chafers?
