You’re Fired!!!

Over fired! Fired up! About to be burned, broiled, caramelized, seared, and melted? You’re hot!! So hot!!! *Poof* You’re a Salamander!!!

So for a few months now we’ve had a pretty impressive, counter-top, professional grade broiler on our floor that has our clients asking “What is that thing?” “What do you do with it?” My friends, it’s a BlueStar Salamander and if you are ALL in with your kitchen equipment, this is the piece you’re missing (or maybe not because you already have one?).

Why would you want this broiler? Well, for one it offers super fast results if you want to sear a restaurant-quality steak. If you are looking to finish off your French onion soups or delicately caramelize your crème brulee, toast some amazing garlic bread, or crisp anything for that matter, you can do so in minutes. I’m thinking heating up a slice of leftover pizza might even be fun and crispy in seconds which is how fast you want it out of the refrigerator. It frees up your oven so you don’t have to switch to a broil mid-prep.

Ovens provide “under” fire, while this broiler provides “over” fire, concentrating the heat from above using ceramic infrared heat. With 11,000 BTUs of power, 215 square inches of cooking space, and a max broil temp of 1850 degrees, you can get serious about finishing off meals or making them right in the broiler. It offers three levels so you can use the lowest broil setting positioned furthest from the top to broil delicate things like fish, quickly. I’m just loving the idea of crisping everything. Fast. Super FAST.

You know I love colors….you can coordinate the knobs to your BlueStar Range knobs!!! There are over 190 color knob choices and 10 metal trim finishes available. What a gem of a company. And it’s all stainless steel construction made in Reading, PA. Truly American made.

It can go on your counter-top or above a range with their mounting shelf. We show it here wall mounted under a BlueStar range but in person it’s a stunning and powerful kitchen look. Stop in and see for yourself!
