Born in the USA more power than a july 4th fireworks celebration

June 30, 2015



Reading, PA, June 30, 2015 – Red, white and blue are only three of the 750 color and finish choices available for BlueStar® commercial gas stoves for the home, proudly manufacturered in Reading, Pennsylvania where the company has produced premium cooking products since 1880.

For 135 years, BlueStar has built a heritage of craftsmanship.  Each BlueStar commerical gas range is hand-crafted in Pennsylvania by skilled American workers.  BlueStar is a homegrown, distinctly American brand preferred by leading chefs who want to create a restaurant-quality kitchen at home.  What’s more, BlueStar caters to the American penchant for individuality, allowing consumers to customize a range from top to bottom, including a choice of burners, colors and even unique accessories like salamanders and French Tops.

“Most ranges are mass-produced so it doesn’t make sense for companies to make them to order.  But for BlueStar, which makes each piece of cooking equipment by hand, customizing every little detail is a way of life,” said Eliza Sheffield, vice president of marketing, BlueStar.  “Customers can order our products with a wide variety of configurations in virtually any color or finish, including custom colors.”

Part of an extensive offering of premium, customizable cooking equipment, a BlueStar gas oven provides a cooking experience that only can be matched by a restaurant kitchen environment.  The PrimaNova™ power burners provide up to 25,000 BTUs of cooking power for consistent, controlled heat and shorter cooking times.  For delicate soups and sauces, no gas stove matches BlueStar’s gentle 130 degree simmer burner.  And, if the weather on July 4th isn’t ideal for an outdoor barbeque, take the celebration indoors with an indoor charbroiler.  With 15,000 BTUs of power and adjustable grate positioning for variable temperature, the charbroilers offer perfect indoor grilling, thanks to the intense, even heat.

BlueStar also has been a leader in color customization for nearly a decade, offering its cooking equipment in 750 color and finish choices as well as custom colors.  An interactive website tool, ‘Build Your Own BlueStar’, allows consumers to completely customize a new range – from the intensity of the burners to the color of the knobs and the range or oven itself – before buying.
