[Costco] Blue Star 30" Open Burner Range $3499.99

Costco has the 30" Open burner bluestar range on sale. I've purchased this stove twice in the past (2014 - $2399) and (2018 - $4299), In both homes.
Best stove hands down for commercial grade cooking at home.

I loved my 30" Open burner Bluestar Range.
Bought it in 2013 while at the GTA Home Show for $2199.
I think it is what sold the house when we moved!
At $3499 this is a great deal.

Gaaaah, this is my dream (or even the 36''). If only I had a kitchen to renovate...

I have this one. I love it but you really need to change one of the burners to 21k btu. 15k simply doesn't cut it.

Good point. And I think from previous research I had done Bluestar will not sell the UG kit on the Costco model. Maybe this has changed?

Does anyone has issue with the oven getting hot on the outside or heat loss? I read this in some reviews and from talking to appliance stores.

I ended up getting a Capital Range instead of Blue Star because upon testing Blue Star in store, the outer lower part got so hot that it would easily burn a child or dog who touched it. Absolute nonstarter. I ended up spending $6k on a six burner Capital Range back in 2015. It is wonderfully insulated and has 25,000 BTUs per burner, absolutely insane. The only thing is I had to order two burners with smaller output to be able to simmer small pots effectively.

Can the 6" backguard be removed so that it is a like a slide in range? The instructions talk about using an island trim but wanted clarification whether the 6" backguard is just an add-on piece.

We have a Bluestar range, Anyone get condensation on the knobs when the oven is on? Also, how do you clean the oven glass door on the inside?

You are absolutely right. The outer lower part is hot when the oven is running on my bluestar.

I bought it back in 2014 for 2399, right before CAD start tanking. Proud owner till this day.

15k BTU is ok when I am woking without wokring and with moderate quantity of food. It's a 5 year old stove, I don't want to 300 to upgrade the burner now. If I buy it now, definitely!

I have had the 36" since 2014. It gets warm/hot, but no issues with heat loss or injuries. You wouldn't want to hang out touching it, but a quick touch won't result in a burn. I have a 4 and 2 year old, never been an issue.

FYI I upgraded on my 36" to have one of the burners be 22k.

I'm as white as rice, but you take off the grate, and a round steel wok sits directly above the burner, and you've probably got one of the best home wok setups short of installing a proper wok burner. Sides get hot too, as they get direct flame too unlike flat bottom woks.


To upgrade I did the following (this was in 2015 mind you). Ordered a replacement 18/22k "Star" burner from Blue Star's parts supplier. I needed a friend's RNB model's serial to order it. Even with the serial, they refused to sell the 22k gas orifice unless you could prove to Blue Star that yours was broken. (Since the orifice is far away from heat and food, it should really never get damaged, so I understand the policy). The orifice basically dictates how much gas comes out to the burner head.

Luckily the star burner is the hard part, the orifice is a common part, and not blue star specific, so plenty of options online to get it. You need a #47 orifice, I ordered the following from WebRestaurantStore.com - "All Points 26-1107 Burner Orifice; #47"

Man I wished there was an easy way but I had to buy second hand from a guy who was selling his RNB.
