Top Tips for Cooking like a Pro at Home

Lucas, 04/26/2017

Everyone is entertaining at home these days, and whether it’s for a small group or a large party, the trend of professional-grade kitchens in the home is here to stay.  A high end chef’s kitchen adds lots of value to your home, and the focus is the appliances.  Here are some key factors to consider when choosing pro-style chef-grade kitchen appliances.

BlueStar High BTU Open Burners

Open Burners with High BTUs

The world’s top chefs consistently choose open burners verses sealed burners for their home kitchens.  With open burners, the flame is completely exposed giving you higher (and more even) heat that is not impeded.  BlueStar’s open burner gas ranges max out at a scorching 25,000 BTUs of concentrated heat, perfect for searing meats or achieving a rapid boil.

Integrated Wok Cooking

The key to cooking with a wok is to expose the bottom of the pan to controlled, high heat levels that will flash-cook the food producing a crisp, fresh flavor.  BlueStar’s integrated wok cooking feature allows you get the bottom of the pan directly over the flame.

Softly Simmer for low temperature simmering

Softly Simmer

Every range has a low BTU burner that’s called a simmer burner, but how well it does its job goes beyond temperature.  BlueStar’s 130° open simmer burner efficiently spreads the heat across the cooking surface to provide a consistently low temperature for the most delicate sauces.

Ample oven space gives the home chef the space to fit appetizers, entrees AND desserts.
