Blue Star Cleaning Question [moved from Los Angeles area board]
I am close to buying a Blue Star range with baked enamel finish but wanted to ask if anyone could advise me about the ease of cleaning the enamel surfaces. I am a commercial fiber artist and will be using it, principally, to dye big pots of wool in my residential studio. I mostly need 6 burners that boil water fast (then turn down to simmer for an hour) and an oven that holds a constant temperature. Because my business is messy - and I am messy - and pots sometimes boil over -- I wonder how durable and easy to clean the baked enamel finish might be? Since it would go in an art studio, color is good ... and I just happened to find a discounted floor model in a color I like. Can I easily wipe away the spills ... or use a little bleach water to clean the enamel? Thanks for any advice.
Thank you for your candor. The goal, of course, is for the pot to not boil over but it does happen with regularity. When you say "finicky" do you mean they stop working until they dry out or that they stop working and need a maintenance call? If Blue Star is so finicky, can you recommend another brand that has a high powered, 6 burner stove, with automatic pilot lights and a good oven .... that can be supported by maintenance calls to my home studio? I now use an old commercial stove but can't get service to come to my residence to maintain it.
