BlueStar Introduces Platinum Series Gas Ranges
BlueStar introduces the Platinum Series, the newest generation of professional gas ranges designed to transform the art of home cooking. Brand new features include two searing PrimaNova 25,000 BTU burners for maximum, concentrated heat; an interchangeable cast-iron griddle/charbroiler that offers the ultimate in cooking flexibility; and the revolutionary PowR Oven technology to ensure faster, more efficient heating.
"This is a truly amazing cooking machine; a technological leap forward in high-performance cooking equipment for the home," says Michael Trapp, president, BlueStar. "For people who love to cook, and want the highest degree of performance, flexibility and efficiency, the new Platinum is unmatched."
The new PrimaNova burners deliver 25,000 BTUs of high concentrated heat, ideal for searing and achieving an ultra-rapid boil – more than three minutes faster than current, already high-performing professional ranges. BlueStar's classic open burner design ensures that heat is evenly distributed across the bottom of the entire pan, with no hot spots around the edges. Combining the PrimaNova burners with your choice of any combination of 22,000 BTU, 18,000 BTU, 15,000 BTU and 130 degree simmer burners allows you to customize the power options to meet your personal cooking requirements.
"The majority of professional chefs use gas ranges, primarily because gas offers exceptionally high temperatures and heat control. The higher the BTUs, the hotter the range can get. This enhances any cooking method that requires high heat, such as searing and wok cooking and also helps reduce cooking time. Besides, combining burners of different power gives you practically unlimited possibilities, and by changing the gas flow you can control the heat instantly and with precision," adds Trapp.
What's also new about the BlueStar Platinum range is that it offers an interchangeable griddle/charbroiler system with up to 40,000 BTUs of heat for ultimate flexibility and power. You no longer have to choose between a griddle and charboiler when designing a range. With the BlueStar Platinum, simply place the cast-iron griddle or charboiler anywhere on the range, interchange the two components based on the day's menu, and enjoy the dual zone cooking control on four unique surfaces. Indoor grilling means that grilling meats, vegetables or anything else is possible from the comfort of your own kitchen. Or, when the mood strikes, simply remove the charbroiler and change to the griddle to enjoy varied dishes like pancakes, grilled sandwiches and seared meats.
The Platinum Series also features a new PowR Oven technology that preheats the oven nearly 40 percent faster and provides a 30 percent increase in overall heat efficiency. Combined with BlueStar's extra-large oven capacity that accommodates full size commercial sheet pans, unique convection oven system and professional grade 1850 degree infrared broiler, the PowR Oven delivers top professional-quality results.

Re-Imagined Design And Ultimate Customization
The Platinum Series' exciting new design features will be incorporated across BlueStar's entire line of professional gas ranges. The entire BlueStar line will now offer a sleeker, contemporary design, with a one piece control panel, smoother front edges, stainless steel knobs, sleeker side trims, as well as a full-width oven door and handle. The new design's easy-to-clean rangetop burner system features formed grease pan inserts and an easy-pull handle to make cleanup a breeze. The oven is easier to clean with a new curved corner cavity and removable bottom. The larger glass oven door offers increased visibility.
"BlueStar engineers have paid meticulous attention to every element of the new design from both a style and function standpoint," notes Trapp.
Constructed of superior-quality, commercial-grade stainless steel, all BlueStar products are designed to withstand the rigors of the busiest home kitchens. Push-to-turn burner knobs with infinite settings provide the precise temperature control home chefs desire.
BlueStar has been a leader in color customization for nearly a decade, offering cooking equipment in more than 750 standard color and finish choices plus thousands of custom color options. Even the knobs are available in 190 colors, and both knobs and trims are offered in designer metals.
Like all products in the BlueStar line, the new BlueStar Platinum is customizable to each individual buyer's taste: choosing from an almost infinite combination of range colors, knob colors, trim finish, backguard, doors and more allows you to make your BlueStar truly your own.
