(Updated: May 11, 2021)

Handcrafted in Pennsylvania, BlueStar® ranges are designed for discerning home chefs who demand restaurant-quality results in their own kitchens.   We offer a wide variety of models to fit your unique cooking and design preferences.  Even though all of our ranges offer different features and levels of customization, they are all built on a time honored tradition of quality and workmanship.

Here is a quick overview of the lines offered and the features and benefits of each.

Platinum Series

The Platinum Series is BlueStar’s most premium line from a performance and design standpoint.  The Platinum Series™ features searing 25,000 BTU burners for a true restaurant cooking experience.  22,000, 18,000, 15,000 and 9,000 BTU burners plus an integrated wok capability round the Platinum Series out.

The Platinum also exclusively offers the Interchangeable Griddle Charboiler – a cast-iron piece that offers incredible flexibility.  You can place the griddle or charbroiler anywhere on the range, interchange the two components based on the day’s menu (meaning use the griddle for pancakes for breakfast, then charbroil a steak for dinner).

The Platinum is the only range line to offer the revolutionary PowR Oven™.  This new technology heats the oven from the back instead of the bottom, thereby resulting in a 30% increase in overall pre-heat time and efficiency.

Instead of heating the oven from the bottom up, the flame is positioned around the convection fan which heats the oven cavity in almost half the time it used to take.

Available in 24” up to 60” sizes, the Platinum Series also features a streamlined design.  Like all of our products, the Platinum is available in 1,000+ colors and finishes.

RNB Series

The newly redesigned RNB Series, available in 24” up to 60”, is our most customizable line.  You can customize the cooking surface (choose from integrated cooking options such as griddles, charbroilers and French tops), the doors (add a swing door) or color (over 1,000+ colors and finishes).  With the RNB Series you can truly create a range built to your own unique cooking preferences.

Performance wise, the RNB Series features 22,000 BTU UltraNova™ burners & 15,000 BTU Nova™ plus a precise simmer burner for even heating.

The extra-large convection oven with 1850° infrared broiler that accommodates a full size 18” x 26” commercial baking sheet.

The RNB Series is available in 1,000+ colors & finishes plus additional customization options

Precious Metals Series Ranges

The Precious Metals Series was designed with the help of one of our All-Star Chefs and includes all of the features that a chef would want in their home range.  What stands out most about these ranges, available in 30″ & 36″, is the contemporary styling of the exterior and the French doors.  The Precious Metals line of ranges are the only ones that include this convenient feature that allows for easy loading and unloading from the oven.

Another outstanding feature on these units are the unique color options available.  On top of the 1,000+ color and finish choices available, Precious Metals units include the choice of six unique colors including Infused Copper and Matte Black which are two of our most popular.  With this series of ranges you also have the choice of getting matching knobs and trim to go along with the color you selected.

RCS Series Ranges

If you’re looking for a pro-style range but aren’t interested in all of the customization features, than the RCS Series is for you.  The searing top burners and extra-large oven capacity that BlueStar is known for is definitely on display with these ranges.  Available only in stainless steel, there are few customization options available with the RCS Series, but you can give it a pop of color by adding painted knobs available in over 190 colors.

Sealed Burner Ranges

Our Sealed Burner Series is the perfect combination of professional level power and a sleek design.  This is the only sealed burner option that we offer and is the ideal product for someone who decided against having an open burner range.  Available in 30″ and 36″, this unit has up to 21,000 BTUs of top burner power and also includes a precise simmer burner for more delicate items.  It also features an extra-large convection oven with an 1850 degree infrared broiler.
