September 29, 2009

(Reading, PA – Sept. 29, 2009) – BlueStar™, manufacturer of high-performance cooking equipment for the home, announced that the company’s line of BlueStar ranges will be featured on season two of The Next Iron Chef. The show pits 10 world-class chefs from around the United States against each other in cooking challenges each week, with the winner crowned the Next Iron Chef.

Throughout the series, the contestants will complete some of their challenges on one of five high-performance, ruby red BlueStar 48” ranges. Each of the 48” ranges feature four 15,000 BTU open burners, one BlueStar trademark UltraNova® 22,000 BTU power burner, one 130 degree simmer burner, and a 12” charbroiler.

“We were approached by the show’s designers because they were looking for a true high performance product for the chefs to cook on. BlueStar was up for the challenge, since we have always stood for delivering premium, professional-quality performance in a home kitchen environment,” said Keith Wolf, Vice President of Marketing at BlueStar.

Mr. Wolf continued, “It’s an exciting opportunity to be able to showcase the cooking performance of the ranges and I think it’s going to be fun for BlueStar owners to watch some of the best chefs in the world cook on the same brand of range they have in their own homes.”

BlueStar has long been recognized as the only true professional quality range for the home. The unique 22,000 BTU burner system is the highest powered open burner on the market. For lighter cooking, the ranges also feature a 130 degree simmer burner, perfect for preparing delicate sauces and soups. It boasts an extremely large oven capacity, powerful convection fan, and a roll out rack that will support even the largest and heaviest turkey. The line offers 24”, 30”, 36”, 48” and 60” ranges and is available in more than 190 colors. Each BlueStar range is hand-crafted in Reading, Pennsylvania.

The Next Iron Chef premieres on the Food Network on Sunday, October 4th at 9pm Eastern / 8pm Central.
