Appliances: BlueStar Wall Ovens

I have long been an admirer of BlueStar ranges. The company originally produced only high-powered restaurant ranges, but they now manufacture exclusively for the residential market. Last year, BlueStar introduced a gas wall oven, and the color options alone are a selling point—190 choices. Other features to recommend it: the door configurations (the 24-inch size features a swing door and the 30-inch and 36-inch sizes feature French doors) for easy access and viewing and the roomy interiors (BlueStar claims they offer the largest oven capacity available in a 30- and 36-inch wall oven). Available in three sizes (24, 30, and 36 inches), the BlueStar gas wall oven can be purchased as single- or double-oven units.
