Bluestar--All that cast iron retaining heat during summer cooking
We'd seriously considered Bluestar when we bought a new range six months ago, but for several reasons decided against the brand. Instead we bought the now-discontinued open burner, AG Wolf. So, I am not in the market but have been wondering about this question ever since the summer heat arrived.
My Wolf has big, clunky cast iron grates that retain heat for a long time after I turn the burners off. And, all of that extra heat sitting there after cooking is not pleasant in the hotter months. When we were shopping and looking, in some ways I'd been attracted to the idea of the entire top of the BS being cast iron. But, now, standing by the Wolf with the grates that take a long time to cool down, I started to think about the Bluestar with its entire top made of cast iron and wondered if there is so much after cooking heat radiation that is a problem in the summer heat (all that extra warmth would be great in the winter though).
As I said, just curious about this.
