Blue Star Range

Sorry you are having so many problems. Did you get an extended warranty? I have had my 30" Blue Star RCS range for just a short time and so far so good. I have had no problem with anything. The range works perfect.

I watched a You Tube video on how to clean the cook top presented by the Culinary Cooking School how to clean a Blue Star cook top. They said be-careful around the ignitors. Mine are attached to a plate so they don't wiggle around. Plus I understand many changes have been made to the oven and stove since 2007 so I'm assuming Blue Star has paid attention to their customer feedback and made improvements.

Some people claimed that the door got so hot you could not touch it. I have not found that to be true. I can touch my handle and oven front without burning my hand, as some have claimed.

I love the fact that the cook top cooks so evenly throughout my cooking pan. I no longer burn things, everything is evenly heated and browns beautifully. I find myself cooking at a much lower temperature as the high heat is not needed for most things I am cooking. Water boils so much faster and roasting in my oven is wonderful. If I have any spills I clean them up right away as the manufacture recommends. It is just so simple right now for me.

I hope you find the range that fits your needs. They do not sell DC's stove's in our area. We live in a small town so that would be something I would have to find on line or go to the city to find.

Need a new range-Husband wants a Blue Star! [moved from Site Talk board]

Thank you so much. This really eases my mind. I really did like the large oven and the way the stove top worked in general.

Our local appliance center did have several Blue Star Ranges on their show room floor and I am hoping that they put one to in their test kitchen. I have never heard of Blue Star before only Viking, Wolf and Thermador. But the cusumer ratings were so good I had to take a second look.

I appreciate all positive feedback as this defiantly puts my mind at ease. I am looking forward to my new range as it is replacing a 12 year old GE Profile that the oven no longer holds the temperature.

Need a new range-Husband wants a Blue Star! [moved from Site Talk board]

My sister just bought a 36" Thermador and loves it. She says her new stove does not get not at all she bought model number PRG364GDH . The new Thermador has the star burners. My husband and I saw a demonstration of one and if I had the money I would buy one myself. Unfortunately it's out of my price range.

So then I looked at the Blue Star and Wolf ranges. The Blue Star seemed to get really good reviews so I settled on the Blue Star 30" RCS I just ordered it yesterday but have been hearing that the oven gets really hot so now I'm a bit leery. I hope I really like it. The cook top is what really sold me on this range.

Your "pro-style" range: Would you spend the money again?

I have the same stove I am replacing now. The Grates I cleaned with oven cleaner and they came out great!

Thank you. It was just a concern after seeing the You Tube video posting.

I don't have small children. So I'm hoping when I get the range it will be a good fit to my updated kitchen.

I just ordered a Blue Star 30" RCS yesterday. I was watching a You Tube video where someone said the door of the BS gets really hot and you cannot touch it or you will have to call 911 and go to the hospital.

This is a scary thought and now I am wondering if I made the right choice.

I like everything else about the product and the way it cooks and all other reviews. This one has spooked me. Can you give any feedback regarding this please.

Do you have any trouble with the range getting to hot to the touch on the outside?

I saw a video on You Tube someone posted and said the oven gets too hot to the touch on the outside. This is a scary thought.

I just ordered one yesterday in a 30" RCS. Did I make a mistake?
