BlueStar® Introduces First 36” High Hood as Latest Addition to the Abbaka Series of Ventilation

The New Ridgeline Hood is a Fully-Customizable Statement Piece for Any Home Kitchen

BLANDON, PA — June XX, 2023 — BlueStar®, manufacturer of professional-grade kitchen appliances for the home, introduces a new hood to its Abbaka Series – The Ridgeline. The 36” high Ridgeline is a first for the brand and fits perfectly with 9’ ceilings without requiring an additional duct cover. By offering a larger scale ventilation hood, the brand acknowledges the evolving trend in kitchen design, where the hood becomes more than just a functional appliance but also a striking element that enhances the overall aesthetic appeal. The Ridgeline’s taller height ensures that it becomes a prominent feature in the kitchen, drawing attention and adding visual interest to the space. Modeled after one of the brand’s most popular designs, the Sahara Curved Hood, the Ridgeline is  6” taller than any other hood in the BlueStar line.

Like all BlueStar products, the Ridgeline is made for professional-grade performance to effectively remove smoke, odors, and grease from your kitchen. The Ridgeline is produced with heavy-duty, commercial-grade materials, and has three exhaust settings and a boost feature, all while running a whisper-quiet operation. Complete with easy-to-use push-button controls, the hood features an innovative multi-stage grease capture system and stainless baffle filters seamlessly easily removed for dishwasher cleaning. Strapping and rivets are included standard with this design, as well as LED lighting that is dimmable. The Ridgeline is available in six widths starting at $6,895, all compatible with BlueStar’s in-hood, in-line, or remote HYEX blowers.

“Over the last couple of years, we’ve seen a shift towards larger, bolder, statement hoods in kitchens. Homeowners and designers alike are creating beautiful focal points in the kitchen, and a larger scale hood is the perfect way to do it,” says Eliza Sheffield, President of BlueStar. “This design has been a frequent request within our custom hood line, and we are thrilled to make it a standard.”

Since 1880, BlueStar® has handcrafted high-performance appliances in Pennsylvania, offering infinitely customizable ranges, hoods and refrigerators as unique as the home chefs who use them. The hood could be fully customized with over 1,000 color options and 10 metal finishes for the strapping and rivets. Pair this new hood over the brand’s latest cooking innovation, the Dual Fuel Series Range.
