A few years ago, our stove on the fritz for the umpteenth time, we decided to take the plunge and just invest in a new, high quality stove that would, in hope, last us for decades to come. We had been saving up money in a “stove fund” for quite some time, so, with our budget firmly set, we headed out to find our kitchen’s new workhorse. We hunted, we researched, and we eventually bought what we thought was going to be the greatest appliance our kitchen had ever seen. Alas, such was not the case.
I am not going to name any names here, but the range we ended up buying has been nothing but trouble from day 1. No, literally day 1. When the stove was delivered to us, parts of it didn’t actually work. I won’t get into the specifics, but, suffice it to say, if I could go back in time, I would not even consider buying a stove from this company (or the larger company that manufacturers all of the appliances under their brand name).
Bluestar Cooking, maker of restaurant quality home ranges (including the gorgeous red stove seen above) recently named Savory Salty Sweet one of their best food blogs of 2012, and, in light of my constant stove struggles, it got me thinking about the type of product they make. Bluestar gets fantastically great reviews for their products, and if you are looking for consistent quality, they are known for having enormously powerful gas cooktops and the best stove oven for even air exchange. For those of you looking for even more cooking options, Bluestar make the best broiler available to home cooks.
I think I need to start saving up my pennies for a Bluestar.
