Chafing dishes, need to purchase or rent

Hosting a party for 35pl, need chafing dishes and would prefer to buy from a party store. Does all food sit above steaming water (unless it's cold cold)? I thought you put the food in aluminum pan and over sterno. Any experience, would love advice. Thank you!
