The National Association of Home Builders Selects Products that Represent the Most Innovative Offerings Among Nine Categories, with BlueStar Winning Kitchen and Bath

BLANDON, PA — February 6, 2023 — BlueStar®, manufacturer of professional-grade kitchen appliances for the home, is excited to announce that the brand’s new Dual Fuel Range has been selected as a recipient of the 2023 ‘Best of IBS Award’ in the Kitchen & Bath category.

Winners were chosen from over 400 submissions throughout nine categories and judged by 26 industry and media representatives last week at the 10th annual NAHB International Builders’ Show in Las Vegas. Winning criteria included innovation, functionalism, design, and usefulness to consumers and/or home builders.

“Our team is thrilled to receive this outstanding recognition for the Dual Fuel Range from IBS,” says Eliza Sheffield, President of BlueStar. “As leaders in handcrafted appliances, we set out to bring the best quality and performance to home cooks with leading design. This win for our brand’s new Dual Fuel range is a testament to that.”

The award winning Dual Fuel Range is the brand’s first entry into the dual fuel category and the first product to feature the brands innovative X8™ burner, a fresh take on their iconic 8-point star-shaped burner, now in a sealed format. The new X8™ burners deliver full-spectrum power, performance, and the largest range of BTUs — from up to 25,000 BTUs down to 500 BTUs — on every burner. The new line features an oversized true convection oven that provides even and consistent multi-rack cooking and fits a commercial-size 18″ x 26″ baking sheet, as well as an intuitive 7” full-color touchscreen control. The new line delivers restaurant-level heat and control with unmatched design options for the home cook.
