The Next Iron Chef Redemption features BlueStar™ ranges

BlueStar™ is proud to be the range of choice for the Food Network’s hit competitive cooking show The Next Iron Chef Redemption. For the title of the next Iron Chef, ten elite cooks compete in the Kitchen Stadium to create a multi-course gourmet meal that will wow the judges, and rank them among the best in America.

When it comes to cooking like a pro, what’s the ingredient that makes the biggest difference? It’s the range used, and with its unmatched performance and power, BlueStar™ is sure to turn up the heat in Kitchen Stadium.

There can only be one winner of Iron Chef, but with a BlueStar™ restaurant grade appliance in your home kitchen, you can cook like a pro, too. BlueStar’s UltraNova® burner delivers an intense 22,000 BTU flame that lets you sear meats like a Kitchen Stadium champ, and gently simmer sauces and soups on the complementary 130° simmer burner. Extra large oven capacity accommodates a commercial sized baking sheet, and removable racks give you cooking and cleaning flexibility. The durable, lasting build of each handcrafted BlueStar™ can handle the heat in any kitchen, no matter how hot the competition gets.

With a BlueStar™ range, the power of the pros comes straight from Kitchen Stadium and into your kitchen. Tune in to the Food Network to catch The Next Iron Chef Redemption, and see BlueStar™ ranges in action.

The Power and Precision of Cooking With A BlueStar™ This Holiday Season

The holiday season is a wonderful time to gather with friends and family for home-cooked meals­.  Every BlueStar™ professional range comes with restaurant quality features that can help you take your holiday meal preparation to an entirely new level.  It has the versatility to: sear specialty meats at high temperatures, simmer delicate holiday sauces, cook tricky, temperature-dependent seasonal treats, and let you cook like pro in your home kitchen with the professional-grade  22,000 BTU UltraNova® burner.

The range’s 22,000 BTU UltraNova® burner delivers an intense flame to sear in the flavor and juiciness of meats, like a holiday flank steak.

That same burner that has the power to sear and sizzle at ultra-high temperatures can quickly adjust to simmer at just 130 degrees.  You’ll find you can gently warm drinks like eggnog without scalding.  This kind of simmer control makes melting a holiday chocolate sauce effortless – no more burned residue at the bottom of your double boiler, and in fact, no need for a double boiler anymore!

The precision and control of the BlueStar burner means you can take on the challenge of cooking some of the most difficult, temperature-sensitive holiday candies like a pro. The ideal cooking temperature of English Toffee is notoriously difficult to reach on a stovetop, but with the precision flame of a BlueStar range you can reach and maintain the ideal temperature for perfect holiday candies every time.

The holiday season is also a busy time of year for roasting and baking. BlueStar’s 30”, 36”, 48” & 60” ranges each feature a full-extension rack, and space enough for an 18”x26” commercial baking sheet. With this superior oven capacity, there’s no need to choose between roasting your turkey and baking a pie—you can cook both at once.

Cooking during the holidays can be a big job, but with the versatile, powerful, and precise cooking features of a BlueStar range, you will be ready to cook up a delicious holiday season.

In the spirit of the upcoming holiday season, we’d like to share one of our All Star chef’s recipes for Roasted Chicken with Yukons and Green Beans. We hope you enjoy it as much as we do.

Roasted Chicken with Yukons and Green Beans

  • 1 – Whole chicken, 2 ½ lbs
  • 4 cloves – Garlic, minced
  • 4 leaves – Fresh sage, chopped
  • 1 sprig – Fresh rosemary, stem removed, chopped
  • 2 sprigs – Fresh oregano, stem removed, chopped
  • 1 lb – Yukon gold potatoes
  • 1 teaspoon – Salt
  • 1 teaspoon – Ground pepper
  • 2 tablespoons – Olive oil

1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees Fahrenheit with convection fan on.

2. Place chicken on cutting board and remove any innards and save for another use or discard. Wipe chicken dry with paper towels. Mix the chopped herbs together with garlic and half of the salt and pepper.

3. With the chicken cavity facing you, place index finger under the skin and carefully form a pocket over each breast of the chicken. Using your fingers, push the herb mix under the skin and spread evenly over the chicken breast without tearing the skin. Pin the wings back and using butcher’s twine tie the legs together. Rub the chicken with the remaining salt and pepper.

4. Place potatoes in a tight even circle on the roasting pan. Top the potatoes with the chicken and drizzle with the olive oil.

5. Place in the center of the preheated oven and cook for 1 hour. Remove from the oven and let rest for 20 minutes before carving.

6. Carve and serve with the chicken fat roasted potatoes underneath and enjoy.
