Where to buy a Blue Star Range

Hi, I'm looking to buy a Blue Star Range. It's hard to find pricing listed anywhere, so does anyone have suggestions for local stores (East Bay or SF) or online retailers?

Thanks!

  1. did you look at Blue Star's website? They have several dealers, apparently, in the area. It really isn't hard to find this info there!!!!

      yeah, i was hoping to get some personal experience with the stores. for example, i saw that airport appliance is listed as a local retailer, but then i've heard some pretty bad reviews about their service after the purchase. i guess I should have specified this in my post! :)

        I saw them at Airport Applicance when I was shopping, though I ended up buying a Wolf. Does service really come from the dealer?

        Their web site doesn't show any service centers in California. Could be a bug on the Web site.

      This was quite a few years ago, though, so not sure if anything's changed. At the time they were nice and helpful.

      1. I'll give highest marks to Mike Eros at Cherin's for best customer service at 727 Valencia Street, San Francisco 415-864-2111
        We purchased our Blue Star range January 2011.

        Before we made the final decision to purchase, we attended a hands-on demo in Berkeley that was inspiring.

        Do your research on exhaust hoods for your range...

        1. Contractors Appliance Source on Geary at Jordan carries Blue Star. The woman salesperson is excellent: knowledgeable and willing to look up answers to any questions she can't answer. Gladly give out relevant brochures. I don't know how competitive their pricing is.

            Bluestar, like Wolf and many other high-end brands, does not allow discounting on their appliances. Unless you're buying a floor model, the pricing is similar all over CA.

            Nothing wrong with Airport Appliance, but they and a couple of other dealers don't do anything but drop it off at your doorstep. Pro-style ranges are very heavy and have specific install requirements (such as where the plug and gas lines must be located), so be sure to do your homework about what happens AFTER purchase.

          2. We bought ours at General Appliance in Berkeley, closed now. Every problem we have had has been able to be solved by purchasing parts online.
