Enhanced Kitchen Hood Line & Design Innovation

January 31, 2019

BlueStar®, manufacturer of high-performance appliances for the home – and a trailblazer in color innovation – will debut a groundbreaking new look in appliance design, new ventilation hoods and showcase a full commercial-style kitchen suite in coral, one of 2019’s top color picks, at the American Gas Association Booth #C2129, International Builders Show (IBS) in Las Vegas, February 19-21.

New Leading-Edge Design Technology to be Unveiled
BlueStar® will unveil a bold new look that promises to change the face of appliance design and offer the ultimate in customization for a truly bespoke kitchen. With the help of designers John Loecke and Jason Oliver Nixon of Madcap Cottage, BlueStar® will unveil the first application of a new innovative design platform exclusively at IBS. Madcap Cottage is a global lifestyle brand that encompasses sophisticated fun, history, whimsy and grace. From interior design projects to home décor products and more, Madcap Cottage channels a spirit and sensibility that is always unique and special, yet also decidedly approachable.

Handcrafted in the Pennsylvania since 1880, BlueStar® first introduced 190 standard colors on its appliances more than 15 years ago and single-handedly helped to reenergize color in the kitchen. Today, the company offers more than 750+ colors and boasts unmatched customization.

Living with Coral in the Kitchen
A full BlueStar® kitchen, featuring the award-winning French Door refrigerator, 48-inch Platinum Gas Range with interchangeable griddle/charbroiler and complimentary custom ventilation, will be shown in eye-popping coral, an orange-pink hybrid hue. Only BlueStar can precisely custom color match to any hue and apply it across its entire line of pro-style appliances, including gas ranges, wall ovens, ventilation and premium refrigeration.

The awarding-winning BlueStar® 36-inch French Built-In Refrigerator offers the largest capacity of any 36” Built-In French Door refrigerator in its class. It features stainless steel interiors – no plastic – dual compressors for enhanced food preservation and exceptionally roomy interiors. The flexible shelves handle large food trays or oversized cakes. A fully extending bottom shelf fits a full-size commercial sheet pan — as does the freezer – so extra-large pans prepped with pastries or hors d’oeuvres can go straight from refrigerator to oven.

A Hood Above the Rest
Launching at IBS is the enhanced line of BlueStar® kitchen hoods, featuring a completely upgraded internal ventilation system with new, powerful baffle filters for high performance and quiet operation. The pro-style ventilation hoods combine heavy–duty construction with seamless design to offer uncompromised durability, functionality, and beauty. The refined internal design, with dimmable LED lights and new two-stage grease filtration system, offers ease of installation and service. The redesigned hoods also are fully compatible with the Abbaka Hy-Ex range hood blowers to produce the ultimate in quiet operation. Abbaka hoods also are owned by BlueStar® and, like all BlueStar® appliances, are available at dealers nationwide.

All BlueStar® cooking, refrigeration and ventilation products are handcrafted for discerning home chefs who demand restaurant-quality results in their own kitchens. The award-winning line includes high-performance gas ranges, cooktops, electric and gas wall ovens, complementary kitchen ventilation hoods and premium refrigeration.
