BlueStar Platinum vs. Capital Connoisseurian
So I've been browsing this forum since I started building my house in January. My home is due to be completed in January so I'm getting pretty close to appliance selection time.
I was pretty set on the Capital Connoisseurian until I saw the Press Release for the BlueStar Platinum series. I really like the fit and finish of the Platinum - looks very nice.
I'm concerned about the hot doors and I know that it has been discussed many time. I called BlueStar and they stated that the doors use the same insulation as previous models and are UL certified to 180F.
I have a 2 year old and another on the way. What is the current consensus on the BlueStar's external door temp? Is it only at its peak when heating up?
Also, how does the BlueStar oven work for baking? I was drawn to the Capital Connoisseurian as my wife likes to bake a lot and the duel fuel compliments baking.
Has anyone seen either of these ranges in person yet?
