BlueStar, manufacturer of high-performance ranges and wall ovens for the home, announced that its ranges will be featured on season two of 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 some of their challenges on one of five high-performance, ruby red BlueStar 48″ ranges. Each of the 48″ ranges features four 15,000 BTU open burners, one BlueStar trademark UltraNova 22,000 BTU power burner, one 130 degree simmer burner, and a 12″ charbroiler. More on indoor charbroilers.
According to Keith Wolf, Vice President of Marketing, BlueStar was approached by the show designers, looking for a true high performance product for the chefs to cook on. Impressed by the premium, professional-quality performance delivered in a home kitchen environment, Next Iron Chef picked BlueStar. BlueStar owners will be delighted for sure to watch some of the best chefs in the world cook on the same brand of range they have in their own homes. The Next Iron Chef premieres on the Food Network on Sunday, October 4th at 9pm Eastern / 8pm Central.
BlueStar has long been recognized as the only true professional quality range for the home. The unique 22,000 BTU burner system is the highest powered open burner on the market. For lighter cooking, the ranges also feature a 130 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.
