New Induction Cooktop for Restaurant-Quality Results at Home

March 16, 2017

Chef Inspired Induction Cooking Technology, Designed for the Culinary Enthusiast

Blandon, PA, March 16 – BlueStar®, manufacturer of high-performance appliances for the home – and a trailblazer in color and customization – is unveiling a new induction cooktop, featuring advanced cooking technology with maximum power and precision for restaurant-quality results at home.

“Our new cooktop is the closest you can get to a professional experience in induction cooking,” says BlueStar® President Eliza Sheffield. “From our Platinum gas range to our new chef inspired refrigeration, and now precise and powerful induction, BlueStar continues to set new standards in performance and customization. We want to empower cooks with the tools they  need for a truly bespoke cooking experience.”

The BlueStar® 36-inch Induction Cooktop combines the sleek design and efficient performance of induction with the precise control and power that is the hallmark of the BlueStar® brand. The new induction cooktop offers the most powerful single burner in the industry, thanks to the exclusive Power Boost feature: a 5,500 Watts burner can bring one gallon of water in a large pot to a rolling boil in only three and half minutes.

The seamless two burner bridging technology is perfect for grilling or searing with the duel zone plancha/grill, sold separately. The unit offers exceptional temperature control with 12 cooking settings.

BlueStar’s induction cooktop features Smart Power Management that automatically calculates and disperses the maximum amount of power across the number of burners in use. The home chef also has the ability to kick start the cooking process on all cooking zones, boosting the power immediately for no-wait cooking and optimal flexibility. There are two levels of even, low temperatures, a true simmer burner at 200 degrees and a warming burner at 150 degrees. Foods like sauces and melted chocolate can be held at a simmer for hours without scorching. “It provides the kind of evenness and accuracy that makes a meaningful difference in the end result,” said Sheffield.

Robust safety features include a “knob lock” and pan detection technology so the unit will not start unless a pan is on a burner. No heat is wasted during cooking because energy is supplied only to the cooking receptacle.

The simple, yet stunning design offers unmatched customization in the category, with the opportunity to personalize the unit with 190 colored knob options and 10 different trims, including brass, copper and stainless steel. The unit comes standard with sleek, easy-to-use stainless steel knobs with “natural white” display lighting, unlike the harsh red glare typical in other units.
