(Reading, PA – November 20, 2014) – BlueStar®, manufacturer of restaurant-quality cooking equipment for the home, has combined professional level features and a sleek design into its new sealed burner Culinary Series, built in the U.S.A. at the company’s historic 1880’s factory in Reading, Pennsylvania.  The new Culinary Series is the latest addition to the BlueStar lineup of high-performing ranges for the home, including the top-tier open burner Platinum® range and the classic open burner Residential Nova Series gas range, each designed to offer professional level cooking options to fit any need or personal preference.


The Culinary Series’ burners provide an intense 18,000 BTUs of high heat cooking and searing while the 5,000 BTU burners allow for more controlled simmering and gentle melting.  Thanks to the full motion grates, pots and pans move seamlessly across the cooktop, and the sealed burner design allows for a quick and easy clean up.

“This is a great way for people to get familiar with the quality and pro performance of the BlueStar brand,” said Eliza Sheffield, vice president, Marketing, BlueStar.  “At BlueStar, we pride ourselves on providing top-tier, pro quality options to fit any home cook’s personal style.”


The Culinary Series features the BlueStar® signature extra-large oven that can accommodate a full-size 18″ x 26″ commercial baking sheet.  The precise convection fan system combined with the cavity design of the oven provides incredibly even heat distribution for precise baking results.


Because of its popularity in the commercial market, the direct-fired ceramic infrared broiler is standard on all BlueStar® Culinary Series ranges.  The large burner produces 1850° of intense, searing heat close to the burner, while effecting a gentler broiler for foods placed farther away.  The broiler is fully recessed into the oven’s top to create maximum cooking space.


Handcrafted in Reading, Pennsylvania since 1880, BlueStar products are built with the highest-quality materials and the distinctive workmanship that comes from 130 years of expertise.  The company’s commitment to precision in form and function is why many top chefs consider BlueStar to be the world’s top-performing residential cooking equipment.

The Culinary Series ranges, made of heavy-duty stainless steel, are available in 24″, 30″, 36″ and 48″ sizes and are offered in stainless steel finish.
