How many BTU's do you need - 15000 vs 22000 Blue Star

frznrth | Jul 27, 2011 10:23 AM


I've been looking for a gas range and have been trying to decide if this one

would be a good choice. It is a Blue Star RCS type - Blue Star as I'm sure you all know makes this type with a 15000 BTU burner and a RNB type with a 22000 BTU burner. It might not be as good as some other ranges but the price is sure nice! - Not sure how to justify spending twice as much or more on a "better" range

How many BTU's does an average person need?

Also is the build quality of Blue Stars RCS line still decent comparable to the RNB line? Someone said that it was junk and shouldn't even be called a Blue Star - What is different between these two besides the BTUs?

Thanks much for your time.
