Bluestar range update (after 3+ years)
The Bluestar saga has been dormant on my blog for quite some time and for the first time I am happy to report good news. My oven door has been opening and closing for 1 year and 4 months! Most of you dear readers are probably perplexed at such trivial news. Your oven doors might have been opening and closing for 5, 10, or even 20 years. But if you keep in mind that in the 3 years of ownership, 4 doors got stuck and needed replacing, the fact that this 5th door is still opening and closing feels like a miracle to me.
My door problem was not unusual. It was reported on many appliance forums. I used to get frequent e-mails from Bluestar owners whose doors wouldn't open. I hope these problems got resolved for all of you dear cooks because being without an oven sucks.
I frequently get e-mails from people who are considering purchasing a Bluestar. They have read the horror story of my range on my blog and want to know how the range is doing now. The final door still opens with no greasing or any other trickery besides pulling on the handle. Life is good.
