The perfect chafing dish for parties, buffet service, and everyday cooking.This Philippe Richard multi-functional 5 quart Stainless Steel Chafing Dish/Sauteuse is great for efficient everyday cooking as well as elegant buffet service. It comes complete with a 5 quart stainless steel sauteuse, 3 legged stainless steel frame, and stainless steel fuel holder with snuffer, making it ideal for stove to table service. The chafing dish/sauteuse is constructed of stainless steel, an ideal material for cooking and serving food. Stainless steel is naturally non-corrosive, does not react with food or odor, is easy to clean and maintain, and brings a polished look to your kitchen or buffet.The 5 quart sauteuse comes with a 5 layer encapsulated disc that transfers heat evenly and quickly for even cooking and excellent energy efficiency. The stainless steel sauteuse excels at braising and sauteing, as well as cooking flavorful stews, casseroles, pot roasts, poultry and pasta dishes – then keeps them warm for hours as a chafing dish.A tight-fitting, shatter-resistant tempered glass lid allows you to monitor the food without disturbing the cooking process, and helps keep food warm longer at buffets. Patented Smart Rest-A-Lid feature allows the lid to rest on the handles – making buffet-style serving simple and clean. This advanced design also allows the lid to sit upright on the countertop, keeping it hygienic. Handles stay cool to the touch, and are riveted to the sauteuse for extra durability.The 5 quart stainless steel sauteuse fits securely into the 3 legged stainless steel frame, as does the stainless steel fuel holder with snuffer, which delivers heat safely and efficiently (fuel not included).
