IF you want your "Chafing Dish Party"
to be a success, your Chafing Dish itself
must not only look well, but cook well.
Like all Meriden productions our Chafing
Dishes are not only attractive but thoroughly
For instance, we have fitted them with
the Alcolite Burner, which we control, by
far the most efficient burner that is made.
Perfectly simple, absolutely safe, it has
the heating power of a regular little furnace.
Our Chafing Dishes are lined with Ivory
Enameled Food Pans that are positively
appetizing in appearanca We control the
Coffee Percolators, quite important
enough for a story by themselves.
Good looking, of course, the coffee they
make is delicious and ready in next to no time.
Any of these may be had fitted with
electric heating devices.
