Blue Star Stella RO+UV Review: Blue Star Stella is India’s first hot & cold RO+UV water purifier. Blue Star, India’s leading air conditioning and commercial refrigeration company have launched a series of feature packed, technology rich and stylish water purifiers that fits in any modern kitchen. Having reviewed over 50 water purifier models in India, I’ve got my hands on the Blue Star Stella RO+UV series and here is my honest opinion on the water purifier.
Build: Blue Star Stella RO+UV is made with food grade, non-toxic, engineering grade plastics. Such plastic is considered nontoxic and BPA free, this keeps the water bacteria free even when stored for longer duration. The device looks tall and handsome measuring 290(W)x497(D)x474(H) mm and weighs 19.3 kg’s. The body corners are neat, elegant without any sharp corners or gaps between the panels. The 8.2 liters large water tank comprises 4.2 liters of room temperature water, 3.4 liters of cold water and 0.6 liters of hot water. Blue Star Stella is designed to be installed on a table top, however, you can find wall stands that can be installed on a wall, I do not recommend this option as the total weight can exceed 28 kg’s with a full tank of water.
Technology: Blue Star Stella is equipped with the industry standard 5 stage water purification process that includes a sediment filter, pre-carbon filter, RO membrane, post-carbon filter and a UV lamp. Even though the purification process is the same when compared to other brands, Blue Star has installed high quality filters that can remove up to 96% TDS from water, whereas other brands can remove up to 90% TDS. These filters also reduce water wastage and help in recovery of up to 33%.
Blue Star Stella is India’s first water purifier that can dispense hot water up to 85 degrees centigrade , cold water as low as 5 degree centigrade and room temperature water, hot, cold and room temperature water is stored in 3 different tanks within the device, you also find a thoughtful separate hot water faucet with a child lock that dispenses water from a separate hot water tank in the water purifier. The separate hot water tank can hold 0.6 liters of water, the small storage volume helps in saving heating costs.
Blue Star patented Anti-stagnant Ripple Technology ensures the water in the tank is not stagnant thereby preventing the formation of slime. Other key features enabled with technology are the touch sensor that can dispense a liter of water with a touch of a button, Electronic dispense button that is easy to operate, Full tank indicator that highlights the tank is full and a 1 liter smart selection function. Blue Star Prisma has a purification capacity of over 250 liters per day, this is a significant improvement when compared to other brands that can purify only 75 liters per day. Having a small dashboard with the filter status would have been a nice feature on this water purifier.
Design: Hands-down, Blue Star Stella RO+UV is one of the best thoughtfully designed water purifiers out in the market, right from separate water tanks to store water with different temperatures, a separate faucet to dispense hot water, child-lock to prevent any accidental burns, touch sensors for quick and easy selection between cold, hot and ambient temperature options
are some of the wow-features. Blue Star Stella is offered in black / silver and white / silver color options, I also like the water disposal compartment which is blended within the product, this ensures a neat finish that adds to the brilliant product exteriors.
Service & Price: Blue Star has a network of 35 offices, 2500 employees, 2200 dealers and nearly over 600 retailers, Blue Star’s integrated business model of a manufacturer, contractor and after-sales service provider enables it to offer end-to-end solutions to its customers. Blue Star Stella RO+UV is retailing at ₹ 44,900.00 and is available online from Amazon.in at ₹ 41,000.00 onwards.
Conclusion: Blue Star Stella RO+UV is one of the most intuitive, feature packed, stylish water purifier with robust technology that can dispense cold, hot and ambient water. The 5 stage water purification is best in-class that can remove over 96% TDS from water. Excellent design & finish, advanced 5 stage water purification technology, advanced features and great service network justify the premium price tag of the water purifier. Blue Star Stella RO+UV is retailing at ₹ 44,900.00 and is also available at Amazon.in from ₹ 41,000.00 onwards.
