New BlueStar Refrigerator: “30 Most Innovative Products 2017”

Posted: April 7, 2017

Each year Beautiful Kitchens & Baths magazine, on newsstands now, reviews thousands of products to select just thirty that will come to define innovation in the kitchen and bath for that year.  “We wanted to recognize those products and manufacturers that were changing the conversation in the kitchen and bath industry by offering consumers the opportunity to significantly enhance their home experience in new and exciting ways,” says Samantha Hart, editor-in-chief of Kitchen + Bath Ideas. “These top products work better, faster, and smarter than ever before. They also combine form and function with fun, which is so important to today’s home owner.”

This year we are honored that our new 36” Built-in Refrigerator was selected as one of these elite products.  Here are the features that we believe helps our refrigerator stand out:

Stainless Steel Interiors

The new BlueStar® built-in refrigerator features an innovative, commercial-style design with professional grade elements like durable 304 grade stainless steel interiors and stainless steel and glass shelves and drawers.  The stainless steel not only adds a luxurious finish, but also helps temperatures stay more consistent.

Rugged, Commercial-Style Construction

BlueStar’s high-end refrigerator includes an articulating hinge that enables them to be installed built-in to your design.  An additional benefit of this hinge is that it allows the drawers and tray to fully extend without being obstructed by the bins on the door.  This allows you to easily access everything in your refrigerator no matter where it’s stored.

Full Extension Tray that Fits Commercial Size Sheet Pans

Seamlessly move from cooling to cooking with the assistance of the refrigerator’s full extension tray that can accommodate a full-size commercial baking sheet.  Much as BlueStar is known for the capacity of their gas ranges and wall ovens, their refrigerators feature the same extra-large capacity.

Extra-Large Capacity

With an industry leading 22.4 cu ft of capacity you’ll have ample space for all of your refrigeration needs.  Since the interior is fully customizable, shelves and bins can be easily changed to fit any entertaining need.  When special occasions come around, from birthdays to holidays, the shelf is fully flexible to handle large food trays or oversized cakes.  The refrigerator also features extra-large, fully-extending drawers with soft, self-close glides, making it easy to access items quickly and easily.  The oversized freezer offers metal drawers featuring soft, self-close glides plus an automatic icemaker with Max Ice feature.

Dramatic Lighting & Touchscreen Controls

Dramatic, ramp-on LED lighting, which reflects beautifully off the metal interiors, adds a clean brightness to the interior.  The intuitive OLED (Organic Light Emitting Diode) touch-screen offers precise temperature control plus advanced features like Max Ice.

Dual Compressors & Evaporators

Independent compressors and evaporators provide optimum food preservation in both the refrigerator and freezer. Fresh foods enjoy moist and cold air in the refrigerator, and frozen foods last longer with dry, frigid air in the freezer. The result is longer, lasting fresh and frozen foods – and no chance of odors circulating in between.

Unmatched Customization Options

Available in stainless steel and more than 750 color and finish combinations to match BlueStar® cooking and ventilation products, the 36-inch built-in refrigerator also offers the option of right or left side handles in 10 metal trims including stainless steel, brass and copper.  With a choice in trims, colors and interior configuration possibilities, BlueStar® refrigeration offers creative options for personalization and function.  The fridge is a replacement size for the most popular 36-inch models.
