If that's all you can get, and it does the job of re-heating and then
heating the dish then go for it.  I guess I just love my new medieval
chaffing dish toys too much.  I'd love to see the presentations at a display
as medieval as possible.  That may not be the requirement or wish here.  The
concept is the same.  Dish, rack to hold heat a bit below dish.  You might
want to include a picture of an actual medieval chaffing dish from that site
just to show the judges that you know what you are replacing.

Absolutely no criticism or snarking intended, but from horrible experience,
watch that pot seriously.  It took me months to get the two round burn marks
off the inside of my first try with the Corning Ware and candle trick.
Never had that problem with the medieval ones combined with the medieval
pot.  Someone said that the heat and shape made the stuff circulate better
on it's own. Believe me, they don't quite follow me around with a fire
extinguisher, but I notice there is one quietly dropped near me some times
