(Reading, PA – August 25, 2008) – Today, BlueStar™, the manufacturer of high-performance gas ranges and cooktops for the residential market, announced the launch of two lines of ventilation hoods for the home – BlueStar Pyramid Hoods and BlueStar Pro-Line Hoods.

Both BlueStar hood lines are available in 30”, 36”, 42”, 48”, 54”, 60”, and 66” width sizes and peak at 1200 CFM. While the lines feature similar performance capabilities, the Pro-Line hood offers a more traditional, restaurant-style appearance, while the Pyramid hood has a more chiseled, chimney aesthetic. The heavy-duty, stylish hoods eliminate odor, smoke, grease, and vapor with expert efficiency. Both models are available in 190 standard colors – at no extra charge – so consumers can match their hoods to the color of their range and kitchens.

“Any time we introduce a new line of BlueStar products, our overriding objective is to deliver well-constructed products that perform at the highest level, equivalent to those found in a restaurant kitchen. When you’re thinking about ventilation, the most crucial performance elements are the quality of the steel and construction, the air capture, and the CFM power,” said Keith Wolf, BlueStar’s Vice President of Marketing.

Providing the ultimate in ventilation, the hoods’ standard features include variable blower control, welded seamless corners, dishwasher safe stainless steel baffle filters, and halogen lamps with dimmer controls for optimum visibility and efficiency.
