Some companies that rent food warmers include Party Unlimited Rental and Supplies, Ralph's General Rent-All and CaterRent. Most catering equipment rental companies charge a per day rate. However, Ralph's General Rent-All has weekend rental rate options as well.
Party Unlimited is located in Los Angeles, California, and it has a wider selection of chaffing dishes than the other two companies, with per day rental prices ranging from $17 to $52. It also offers two different types of chaffer sternos that last between 2 1/2 hours and 6 hours. However, the company has a smaller selection of food warmer carriers than the other two companies on this list.
Ralph's General Rent-All, which is based in Woodstock, Illinois, boasts a wide inventory of food warmers and food warmer accessories that it provides at affordable weekend rental rates. However, its selection of individual equipment pieces is small. It has one option each for chaffer and heat lamp rentals, and it offsets this lack of diversity with specialty heat warmer items, such as two types of steam warmer tables.
CaterRent, located in Minneapolis, Minnesota, specializes in concession-style food warmers such as nacho cheese and chili warmers, bread and bun warmers, and pizza oven warmers that double as delivery units.
