This range is incredible. The 22,000 BTU burners make pan seared steak frites restaurant quality."

The new PowR Oven™ features a power burner that is located inside the back of the oven cavity. This burner technology, which is widely used in commercial ovens, provides heat directly to the cooking chamber, enabling faster preheating and overall enhanced efficiency. When the power burner is running the convection fan cycles on a low speed to promote even heat distribution throughout the oven cavity.
No, there is no additional heating element in the bottom of the oven. The power burner, located at the back of the oven cavity, provides a more efficient heat source.
All units come standard with a convection fan. It is controlled by a switch located on the front control panel. For more efficient and even baking and roasting, use your PowR Oven™ with the convection fan turned on. If you choose to use the convection fan, standard adjustments in temperature are recommended. The convection fan will always run at a low speed when the power burner is on. The fan will run at a high speed when the burner is not lit and if the convection switch on the front control panel is on.
The power burner cycles to maintain the desired air temperature for a constant and even heat. The power burner flame will automatically ignite and extinguish during this process. The blue indicator light, located on the front control panel, will turn on every time the power burner is on as the oven cycles to maintain the set temperature.
No, the cavity design, which features coved corners, and the automatic cycling of the convection fan while the power burner is running promotes consistent heat distribution for even roasting and baking.
Recommended temperatures are a great starting point. With the power burner you may need to adjust your temperatures slightly to get your desired results. In general lighter, smaller recipes such as cookies, muffins, and thin layer cakes, will cook in roughly the same amount of time as your recipe. The denser the recipe (e.g. cheesecakes, pound cakes, large meats) the faster the cook time will be verses your recipe. Consult your user manual for additional guidance.
No, the power burner located on the back wall of the cavity is the heating element for the oven.
Although the indicator light is on, it may take up to one minute for the power burner to ignite, this is normal.
The power cord is 5ft long.
Yes, both casters and legs are available. Each range comes standard with legs. Casters must be requested at the time of order.
The standard backguard is Island Trim, which is grate height. Additional available backguards are 6", 17" and 24", and must be specified at the time of order.
All Platinum™ Series ranges come standard with all burners. The BTU configurations for the 48" & 60" are below:
The Interchangeable Griddle and Charbroiler System comes with 6 pieces.
No, the cast iron pieces are not non-stick, but they are porcelain coated.
It can be placed on any two burners from front-to-back on the range.
There is a stainless steel diffuser that fits into two grooves within the frame (skirt). It is placed underneath the cast iron charbroiler grate pieces. It works to deflect any potential drippings from hitting the burners and directs them to the grease trays.
Yes, there are 2 cooking zones with the griddle and charbroiler, a front and a rear. The front and rear are controlled by using the knobs on the control panel to adjust the flame of the front and rear burners. You can adjust each zone by moving the knobs to your desired heat.
Only 1 frame (skirt) comes standard with each range.
Allow all parts to come to room temperature. For the cast iron frame, griddle, and charbroiler grates, wash with warm water and a non-metallic grill brush. Rinse well and dry thoroughly. Do not submerge grates in water for extended periods as this may cause rusting. For the stainless steel diffuser, wash with hot, soapy water. Rinse and dry thoroughly.
TIP: For easier clean-up of drip pan, add some water to the drip pan underneath the charbroiler before using.

Yes, but we recommend that they air dry.
CFM stands for Cubic Feet per Minute and is a measurement of air volume velocity.
Hood size: we recommend a hood size that is at least as wide as your range or cooktop. Ideally, your hood would be slightly wider than your range or cooktop to allow for greater air capture. CFM: it is recommended that for every 100 BTUs of heat generated by a cooking vessel, the blower in a hood should move 1 CFM of air.
No. Your hood needs to at least match the width of the cooking product you are placing it over.
BlueStar does not manufacturer downdraft ventilation and In most cases we do not recommend a downdraft for use with BlueStar ranges and cooktops.
Depending on your style of cooking, BlueStar generally recommends cleaning your baffle and mesh filters at least once a month. If you frequently fry/wok cook, you may want to clean your filters more often. BlueStar hood baffles are dishwasher-safe.
BlueStar recommends that the bottom of the hood should be 30" minimum to 36" maximum above the countertop for both Pyramid and Pro-Line hoods. These dimensions provide for safe and efficient operation of the hood.
BlueStar’s Pro-line series can be vented from the back or through the top; our Pyramid series is top venting only.
Prepping your cookware: it’s important to prep your BlueStar cookware before using it for the first time. Before first use, wash your cookware thoroughly with hot, soapy water to which you have added ¼ cup of vinegar. This will remove any manufacturing oils or polishing compounds. Rinse with clear hot water and dry immediately.
After every use: Wash in warm soapy water, rinse, and dry. Burned-on food can be removed by filling the utensil with water and letting it soak until food loosens. Sprinkle with stainless steel cleanser. Rub in a circular motion with a moistened folded paper towel. Wash in warm soapy water, rinse, and dry.
Removing Burned-on and/or Dried-on Foods: Let utensil cool, partially fill with cold water and bring to a boil over medium hear unit food particles loosen. Let cookware piece cool again and then clean as usual.
Heat hints: When excessive heat is used, heat tints of blue or golden brown, or white hard water spots may appear. Make a paste with water and a non abrasive stainless steal cleaner that do not contain chlorine bleach. Suggested cleaners: Steel Glo and Bar Keepers Friend. Apply paste with a cloth or sponge (do not use an SOS type pad) and rub lightly in a circular motion. Due to the condition of the cookware piece, several applications may need to take place to restore the color/condition of the pan. Wash cookware again, rinse and the dry promptly.
Warping: Never put cold water into a hot utensil or plunge a hot utensil into cold water. Sudden changes in temperature may cause metal to warp, resulting in an uneven bottom.
Yes. Do not store foods or allow fats, salts, acidic foods, or foods that have been seasoned to remain in the utensil for long periods of time or pitting may occur. Salt should always be added to boiling liquid in the utensil and then stirred until completely dissolved.
If preheating with oil, always add the oil before heating, and do not cover the utensil.
Use the right tool for the job. Best results are obtained when cooking utensil is at least 2/3 full of food. Be sure to also adjust the flame of your gas range so it does not extend past the bottom of the cookware.
