(Reading, PA – October 7, 2010) – BlueStar™, manufacturer of high-performance cooking equipment for the home, announced that the company’s line of BlueStar ranges is again being featured on The Next Iron Chef. The show pits 10 world-class chefs from around the United States against each other in cooking challenges each week, with the winner crowned the Next Iron Chef.

Throughout the series, the contestants will complete many of their challenges on one of five high-performance, ruby red BlueStar 48” ranges. Each of the 48” ranges feature four 15,000 BTU open burners, one BlueStar trademark UltraNova® 22,000 BTU power burner, one 130 degree simmer burner, and a 12” charbroiler.

“We’re thrilled to be back on The Next Iron Chef for a second consecutive season. Last year’s show was a huge hit among cooking fans and it was exciting for BlueStar to be a part of it. In addition to cooking on BlueStar ranges, this year the chefs will also be cooking on BlueStar professional grade cookware. It’s always fun to see some of the world’s best chefs matching skills using our products,” said Keith Wolf, Vice President of Marketing at BlueStar.

BlueStar has long been recognized as the cooking equipment of choice for the serious home chef. The unique 22,000 BTU burner system is the highest powered open burner on the market. For lighter cooking, the ranges also feature a 135 degree simmer burner, perfect for preparing delicate sauces and soups. It boasts an extremely large oven capacity, powerful convection fan, and a roll out rack that will support even the largest and heaviest turkey. The line offers 24”, 30”, 36”, 48” and 60” ranges and is available in more than 190 colors. Each BlueStar range is hand-crafted in Reading, Pennsylvania.

The Next Iron Chef appears on the Food Network on Sundays 9pm Eastern / 8pm Central.
