November 14, 2013:
On Tuesday, November 6th, a select group of bloggers were invited to the BlueStar and Prizer Hoods factories for the debut of the new Platinum Series range and a culinary experience they soon won’t forget.
The day began with a tour of our Reading, PA facility that has been continuously producing stoves and cooking equipment for over 130 years. Our guests were able to see the meticulous work that goes into every one of our handcrafted products and the commitment by the staff at Prizer Painter Stove Works to produce a high-quality, customized product.
After the tour, the bloggers had a chance to experience the power of BlueStar for themselves in our interactive showroom. Our 130 degree simmer burner gently melted chocolate for chocolate covered strawberries (without a double boiler) while the searing power of the new 25,000 BTU PrimaNova burner produced restaurant quality stir fry. We finished by demonstrating the baking prowess of the new PowR oven featured on the Platinum Series range with our new favorite chocolate chip cookie recipe.
The day was completed with a delicious lunch prepared by BlueStar All Star Chef Paul Marshall who prepared a menu of seasonal favorites from his Malvern, PA farm. Grilled paillard chicken, a fresh arugula and fennel salad, a seasonal fall soup and of course our delicious strawberries and cookies completed the day and showcased the cooking expertise of the chef and our BlueStar cooking equipment. We enjoyed sharing our factory and showroom with these special guests.
