Wanted to come back and update this as the evenness problem in the oven seems to be largely resolving itself over time. Its not perfect but its a lot better than it was. For things like the pizza and meatloaf, I no longer feel the need to turn the pan. We baked some cookies a week or two ago and didn't turn the first batch and while it still wasn't perfect, it was acceptable. We did turn the remaining batches just to keep things as consistent as possible.Sarah Kirschbaum wrote: ↑August 26th, 2018, 5:36 amUgh, very sorry to hear that. We have the 36 inch model, and have noted a vast improvement in the Platinum series over our old one, where we also had to rotate sheet pans. That's a shame.Brian Gilp wrote: ↑August 26th, 2018, 5:30 amIt’s a platinum 48 inch and purchased this spring. It is an evenness problem that isn’t a reason to avoid the product but is bad enough to require turning of sheet pans when baking. Same issue with the broiler.Sarah Kirschbaum wrote: ↑August 26th, 2018, 5:18 am
Hi Brian - We also had oven issues with our old Blue Star, but the company claimed, and reviews supported, that those heating problems (evenness and time) had been addressed in the newer Platinum series. We bought one when did the new kitchen, and have been very happy - no perceivable oven problems anymore. I don't know which models of Blue Star oven you have tried, so apologies if this comment is irrelevant and you are still finding problems with the Platinum. It made us very happy to find that the oven was now performing at the level of the burners!
The broiler remains an uneven mess.
