BlueStar® to Showcase Innovative New Products at IBS 2023 with
Booth Curated by Award-Winning Interior Designer Noz Nozawa

BlueStar to Launch Dual Fuel Range Line, 2023 Color of the Year, and New Vent Hood Plus Preview Wine Storage at Booth C2108 in Las Vegas

BLANDON, PA — January 20, 2022 — BlueStar®, manufacturer of professional-grade kitchen appliances for the home, will showcase cutting-edge new products and designs at the International Builders Show (IBS) from January 31 to February 2, 2023 in Las Vegas. The booth was curated by designer Noz Nozawa, regional winner of the BlueStar 2022 Kitchen Design Contest and founder of San Francisco-based Noz Design. This year’s booth will highlight the award-winning Dual Fuel Range Line, statement ventilation, new wine storage, and BlueStar’s 2023 color of the year, Wine Red, as selected by Noz Nozawa.

Noz designed the BlueStar booth to express two opposing sentiments. The front features BlueStar’s color of the year, Wine Red — a deep burgundy that brings warmth into 2023, reflective of renewed energy and vibrancy. The vignette includes a custom mosaic by Artaic, to bring a sense of artwork into the kitchen. In contrast, the back of the booth celebrates the cool tones trending in 2022 — blues and greens — and has the energy of spring and summer. Dusty turquoise cabinetry and tile from Fire Clay are paired with copper hardware throughout the appliances and cabinetry.

“I love color in the kitchen,” says Noz. “It brings a unique touch while adding glamor and luxury. Part of why I enjoy working with BlueStar is the numerous customization options — finishes included. With endless color offerings and digital rendering tools, it was easy to find colors and finishes that worked together and intuitively land on Wine Red, a color that spoke to 2023.”

BlueStar will showcase its latest range, the brand’s first-ever Dual Fuel Line, now shipping throughout the US and Canada. The series features a fresh take on the brand’s iconic burners — an eight-point star shape, now in a show-stopping sealed format with restaurant-level heat and control plus the largest range of BTUs, from up to 25,000 BTUs down to 500 BTUs on every burner. The extra-large True European convection oven is designed for precise and even cooking and baking. An intuitive, full-color, 7” touchscreen offers improved visibility, high resolution, and “Quick Start” three-touch cooking. BlueStar designed and engineered Dual Fuel from scratch to exceed customer expectations and deliver a product that combines complete customization with trademark professional performance.

Additionally, visitors will get a fresh look at BlueStar’s ventilation line, and a first-time introduction to BlueStar’s first 36” high hood — the Ridgeline. In 2021, BlueStar introduced the Abbaka Series Line of 30” tall hoods, including the Atlas, Normandy, and Mesa, to meet increased market demand for statement ventilation. Seeing the need for even larger scale hoods, BlueStar introduces the Ridgeline, the brand’s first 36” tall hood — perfectly compatible with a 9” ceiling with no duct cover required. Available in any of BlueStar’s 1,000+ colors and comes standard with strapping that is available in any of their 10 trim finishes.

Finally, BlueStar’s booth will preview the expansion of the award-winning line of integrated column refrigerators and freezers to wine storage. The 24” wine refrigerator will have two cooling zones, — an upper and lower compartment individually temperature controlled between 39 °F and 64 °F — a humidity adjustment setting — and a bottle capacity of 72 bottles, with twelve (12) shelves with six (6) bottles per shelf.

“We are thrilled to be at IBS and provide an inside look at all the exciting innovations happening at BlueStar,” said Eliza Sheffield, President of BlueStar. “The home cooking experience is the driving force behind BlueStar, and we are excited to continue to elevate performance and design for our customers.”

Designer Noz Nozawa will be walking attendees through her booth design and inspiration for the color of the year. BlueStar will be at booth C2108, inside the American Gas Association.
