What's more, BlueStar pro appliances are available in 190 different colors as well as custom-colors in endless configurations. A full spectrum of designer hues – from vibrant Ruby Red to subdued Stone Gray – help to reinvent the kitchen as a work of art. BlueStar lets you unleash your inner designer with ranges, wall ovens and hoods available in a painter's palette of color shades to complement any kitchen decor.
"BlueStar was developed for people who love to cook and so was ICE - a perfect match," said ICE President Rick Smilow. "Its professional performance and durability has become apparent as BlueStar pro appliances continue to be enjoyed by thousands of students. Now, visiting award-winning chefs, students in many of ICE's 1,500 yearly recreational cooking classes, as well as guests attending our special events, will have a chance to experience the quality and performance of BlueStar firsthand."
ICE's demonstration kitchen, equipped with BlueStar ranges, cooktops and wall ovens, has hosted chefs such as Red Rooster's Marcus Samuelsson, Modernist Cuisine's Nathan Myrhvold and ICE alum Marc Murphy, among many other culinary luminaries and chefs. It frequently hosts media events and has served as a set for shows such as Top Chef, Next Food Network Star and Celebrity Apprentice. Distinguished Iron Chef Jose Garces recently previewed selections from his upcoming cookbook "The Latin Road Home" at ICE and prepared a South American feast on his cooking equipment of choice, BlueStar.
Founded in 1880 under the Prizer-Painter name, the company introduced its own professional ranges to the residential market under the BlueStar name in 2002. With technology and performance usually only found in professional ranges, BlueStar is a true genuine restaurant range for the home.
