It is a ceramic tile that looks like concrete. Bedrosians was the manufactuer. This one is discontinued but they have new lines that are similar.

What material was used for the counter?

That is honed black granite. Honed is better than polished in that it doesn't show the dirt/smudges. If you want something that more forgiving, go lighter. Happy New Year

Hood height? - How far above the range did you mount the hood? How tall are the cooks in your family? Thanks!

I think performance and having your product installed so it will fall under the guidelines for a warranty should be the most important factor. When cooking, one is typically looking down and 6' is not an unusual height for men.

Thank You. We werent thinking of raising it higher than 36" was just trying to figure out what the lowest height could be that he would be comfortable with. I am only 5'2" so 30" above the range is fine by me!

What size hood is that? - Is your Blue Star range a 36"? And what size hood did you get for it? Thanks so much!

Amy A. Alper
The hood is 36". Hoods should be at least as wide as the cooktop or range below. For really professional appliances (and cooks) it is often recommended to go wider. We just didn't have the room. Even if you buy elsewhere, the salespeople at a good showroom can help.

Do you know the RAL color of this range? - I am ordering this range, and this color looks amazing!!!! Looks like ruby red????

The Owner ordered the stove. I believe Blue Star offers a range of reds but this one was their standard. I always recommend seeing a swatch or visiting a showroom with samples of other materials you'll be using to be confident of the choice.

Thanks very much for responding to me. I just picked up some swatches from my local appliance dealer and can't wait to order. Thanks again!!!

Do you like the Blue Star Range? - We are considering this exact range and I am wondering how it performs-pros and cons?

We have a 36" Blue Star range like the one pictured and we love it. I haven't noticed the door getting hot at all, and I use the oven a lot. We've had it nearly 3 years now.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

The careful placement of appliances also made room for extra prep space on either side of the range. Using Ikea cabinetry and affordable flooring allowed most of the budget to go toward the Blue Star range.Cabinetry: Adel, Ikea; refrigerator: Jenn Air
