BlueStar Launches First-Ever Dual Fuel Range Line

January 5, 2023

Unique 8-Point Star-Shaped Sealed Gas Burners Offer Restaurant-Level Heat and Control with Unmatched Design Options

BLANDON, PA — January 5, 2023 — BlueStar®, manufacturer of professional-grade kitchen appliances for the home cook, announces the launch of the brand’s first line of Dual Fuel Ranges – pairing the revolutionary X8™ sealed burners with a precision electric oven.

The new line will be the first BlueStar® product to feature a totally reimagined sealed 8-point star-shaped burner, which flawlessly combines high heat with subtle simmer on every burner – the X8™. Each burner delivers full-spectrum power, performance, and the largest range of BTUs – from up to 25,000 BTUs down to 500 BTUs. The gentle, constant simmer is standard on all burners. The new X8™ burners have the expansive 8-point heat coverage of BlueStar’s iconic open burners in a modern sealed design for optimal control and easier cleaning. The sprawling 20” circumference offers even heating across any size or style of cookware, while 152 precision-control heat ports provide three times the flame distribution over any other sealed burner. Home cooks can have it all and do it all on every single burner.

“As leaders in handcrafted, kitchen appliances that deliver restaurant-quality results at home, we exclusively designed the new X8™ burner to bring incomparable power, performance, and control. Home cooks can now seamlessly transition from sear, to sauté, to simmer to warm on every burner, revolutionizing and simplifying the cooking experience,” says President, Eliza Sheffield.

The new line features oversized true convection ovens that provide even and consistent multi-rack cooking and fit commercial-size 18″ x 26″ baking sheets. Eight cook modes include Bake, Convect Bake, Roast, Convect Roast, Convect, Broil, Proof and Dehydrate, plus Sabbath mode, and a temperature probe. The oven offers an environmentally friendly 90-minute express clean cycle and ContinuClean™ technology, a gentle clean whenever the oven is on. An intuitive 7” full-color touchscreen with an ergonomic tilt-up display controls the oven, and Quick Start™ functionality allows home cooks to begin baking with three easy touches. Users can also customize the design and color of the clock display to fit their personal style. The ranges are available in both 36” and 48” sizes with an optional 12” built-in griddle on each.  

As with all BlueStar® appliances, the new Dual Fuel line is available in over 1,000+ color options, custom color matching, and 10 metal trim finishes. This unlimited customization gives designers and homeowners alike the utmost freedom of choice for a bespoke kitchen design. Pair with customized BlueStar® refrigeration and ventilation products for a cohesive look.

“We are offering the best of both worlds, not just with gas burners and electric ovens, but in performance and customization,” says Sheffield.

This September, BlueStar®’s new Dual Fuel Range was announced as the winner of the Kitchen & Bath Business (KBB) 2022 Product Awards in the ‘Cooking Appliances’ category. The KBB Product Awards honor manufacturers for superior products that meet the market need, technological advancement, aesthetic merit, and innovation. The judges were impressed by the collection’s customizability and color options and feel it is a strong development from a U.S.-based cooking appliance brand.

This December, BlueStar®’s Dual Fuel Range was also announced as a winner of a 2022 GOOD DESIGN® Award in the ‘Kitchen + Appliances’ category. The Chicago Athenaeum Museum of Architecture and Design’s annual GOOD DESIGN® Awards program announces the most innovative and cutting-edge industrial, product, and graphic designs produced around the world.

Since 1880, BlueStar® has handcrafted high-performance appliances in Pennsylvania, offering infinitely customizable ranges as unique as the home chefs who use them.
