Blue Star French Door Wall Oven BWO30AGD – Review

Written by Appliance Dude | January 8th, 2015

I brought the BlueStar French Door Wall oven, model BWO30AGD in for display around a year ago and following my reps advice, floored it in a cobalt blue color.


The piece sat in its wall space for a year, untouched and unsold, as if it was waiting for King Moonracer to take it to the Island of Misfit Appliances.

Then a funny thing happened.

I requested a color swap to stainless (while maintaining the blue knob which matches up well with the BlueStar logo) and this thing POPS now. In just a matter of days it has received more floor attention and it looks like it could now be a stud piece.

While I’m still not thrilled with the way the door mechanism works (it will only open and close if you pull from the left side, unlike the Viking French Door oven which opens and closes either way and without must exertion), this is certainly a piece worth considering if you A) need a gas wall oven B)have 30″ in width C) and want the ability to access the oven cavity in a completely unencumbered fashion.

I’d also give a thumbs up to the aesthetics on the BlueStar. It’s nicer looking than the American oven, prob not as nice as the Viking. From what I understand they are making some tweaks to it (no more speckled interior) and more importantly the mechanism driving the doors is going to change soon. And that could then move this from a cool piece to a stud.

    We have the French door oven in our BlueStar range. I love the look but also am not a fan of the opening mechanism. Overall it’s still a “like”. I don’t mind the speckled interior, either.

    I am less interested in the appearance and more in the performance. Specifically I would like to know about preheat time, fan noise, how evenly it bakes, energy efficiency, and how repair issues have been dealt with.
