There are two definitions of Paraffin. The American version is a petroleum wax. The British version matches the American definition of Kerosene.

Yes it is an alcohol burner but it has a specific purpose.

It could be used for that but that is not its intended design use.

No Carlos.

Its purpose is for a cooking procedure but it can warm just about anything you put on it.

Well we have decided that it is an alcohol stove. But if it can be used to cook, or warm anything, then we could still be here in the Spring!

A chaffing diss seems what we would call a Hostess trolley in the UK.

It is a Flambé lamp.
http://www.alessi.com/en/3/510/pots-and-pans/la-cintura-di-orione-flambe-lamp

"The lamp and the flambé pan are among the most recent cooking utensils to be developed in order of time. They are believed to evolve directly from the Réchaud or Spirit Warmer, a device in fashion in the XVIIIth century and throughout the neo-classical period. They were used to carry the heat source (Charcoal, candle or spirit) direct to the table for placing a vessel with food over it to keep it warm, or even to make coffee. A short but significant step taken towards the end of the last century was to improve these devices formally and functionally, thereby sanctioning their use for cooking certain foods at the guests table, with the spectacular effect so typical and fashionable of the belle epoque period, flambéing. The special feature of these utensils make them particularly indicated for Sautéing (especially fruit sweets, sweet and savoury crêpes, médaillons or miniature escaloppes, fish fillets), although the lamp, as a heat source, strictly speaking could be used for many other cooking techniques.Although its image is so bound up with fin de siécle, above all with the traditional, international cuisine of Grand Hotels, it must be underlined that the lamp and its pan can be used in preparing dishes of great interest and novelty, as shown by the cuisine of Angelo Paracucchi. The most noteworthy feature of our lamp (a spirit or alcohol burner, as in the traditional model) is that it has been designed as a highly professional tool. In the first place, as flambéing is a very fast way of cooking, it is possible to obtain a wide range of flame, from very strong to very reduced heat, depending on requirements, and easily controlled. The upper grid of heavy concentric discs can be used for the other vessels besides the traditional pan."

Looks like you came up with the right answer first:
"A methylated spirit (wood alcohol) food warmer ?"
