What are the main differences between gel and wick chafing fuels?

Both types provide high quality heat for consistent performance. Wick chafing fuels are available in several varieties ranging in burn time and heat output. Wick fuels are considered a safer option as they are not flammable if spilled and the can stays cool to the touch when lit. Gel chafing fuels offer a strong, hot flame and are a good choice when an event lasts up to two hours. Caution should be used with gel chafing fuels: when lit the can gets very hot;  if spilled, the gel will remain lit and could cause proper damage.
