Please tell me you didn't buy all those nice chafers. That's a whole lot of silver on that table!
I own a few of them. I am lucky to have a friend who use to cater. He lost his resturant and now the stuff is in storage. He lets me borrow anything I need. I do plan on buying a new one per job from now on. I will just figure the cost into the price. I love those small round 1/2 chafers. They work great.
