Viking Reviews and Testimonials

I purchased my Viking appliances when I did a full Kitchen remodel last November 2012. I did the commercial Refrigerator, Gas Range, Dishwasher, & Microwave. Needless to say, they are beautiful & make quite a statement in addition to the great function. Everything is easily accessible in my refrigerator unlike my previous one. My dishwasher cleans better than any I have ever had. My stove, OH my stove! I love it! I love the ease of cleaning with the grates, the slide out rack in my oven & basically just love cooking on the gas top. I looked at other high end brands & decided on Viking when I discovered that I could do a complete matching Kitchen. Also, after looking at other high end refrigerators, I realized that the Viking shelving was made better & had better space & features.

I purchased my 30" gas Viking Range along with the hood in 1996. It has been a workhorse all these years with minimal trouble. I was given the newer non-powder coated grates about 10 years ago since the original ones had chipped. I love the range and the improvements Viking has made on the newer models. No more open drip trays; the sealed burners would be much cleaner. It seems these days that too many appliances are not made for the "long haul." Our Viking range sure was, and almost 18 years later....still cooking like a pro.

I love my Viking range. It is large,powerful,and very handsome! We are people on a very tight budget, and I was only able to afford it because I got a great rebate. Thank you Viking!

When I decided to remodel my kitchen with upgraded appliances, I looked at all manufactures. After much shopping and testing of different rangetop, I decided on the Viking (VGRT530-30") four burner gas rangetop. Clean, simple design and very high BTU's on its burners. It was priced like similar units, but the output, simple knobs and grates and being able to light sealed burners in power outages were the deciding factors. The unit is just about two years old and not one problem. I am happy that I made the right choice.

I am a seasoned amateur cook with many years of experience and when I moved into my new dream apartment my biggest concern was working with an electric range as the apartment block does not supply gas. Also I wanted to upgrade the present range for a Viking and was very pleased to see that Viking made a profession line induction range. As I had some experience with induction cooktops and owned a complete range of All-Clad cookware I went ahead and bought the Viking induction range. It was the absolute best thing I ever did. Not only was the range extremely well made and very attractive but it is possibly the best cooking range I have ever used. The oven is spacious and efficient and the induction cooktop is clean, fast and in combination with my stainless steel cook ware, it gives me all the versatility of gas without the mess.

I could never go back as cleaning the glass top is easy and efficient. The convection oven is also efficient and turns out beautiful pastries and pie crusts. In all, I feel that purchasing this beautiful range was one of the best things I have ever done and certainly provides me with all the efficiency of gas cooking. I love my Viking range and take every opportunity to show friends and introduce them to the efficiency of induction cooking and the efficiency and beauty of the Viking range. I would fully recommend this product to anyone who like to cook but is restricted to electricity as the source of heat. Now I am buying the Viking microwave with built-in hood to complete my cooking area.

Great piece of cooking equipment. And Great looking... Only problem is it looks so professional that my friends now expect gourmet dinners on such a pro stove... So in fact this good looking Viking has forced me to take a cooking course... Bottom line: as a result of buying this 30" Viking range, I am in fact now a better cook... No make that Chef... And my friends now are not disappointed when dining here with us... Would definitely recommend Viking products to anyone who is serious about cooking... A well engineered product and in addition it is made right here in the good old USA...Yea...

I'm a firm believer that you "get what you pay for" and I truly loved my Viking Pro Range and hood. I loved the styling, quality and the high BTU's but after really getting into using the oven - I wanted a range with convection - so I decided to upgrade to a convection oven. When I went to purchase a new range - I had not worked in a while due to the economy and I didn't want to finance any large purchases so the salesman talked me into purchasing a DCS range with convection. BOY - was that a MISTAKE! I've had nothing but problems with this stove the minute the warranty expired! How I dream of the old days of my Viking! I should have just trusted my gut and purchased what I always wanted. So I pass on to you what I was told as a child - "When you buy - buy good - cause when you buy good - YOU HAVE"! I need to heed the lessons I learned as a child! Someday - I'll get that new Viking Range WITH the Convection oven!

Many years ago while walking down a street in Boston, i saw my first Viking Range in the window of a restaurant supply store. It was so beautiful in stainless steel, and with two ovens, i just had to have it. My wife and i swore that someday we would have our own house, and we would have that Viking range. Well we did finally build a beautiful big home, and we did buy that Viking range. We have had many large dinner parties, and have cooked and baked anything and everything you can imagine. It has been the best appliance we have ever owned. It works flawlessly day after day, and still looks great with its shiny stainless steel skin. It is now about 16 years old and still, it looks as good as the day it arrived. Its the focal point of my kitchen. Now we are looking at remodeling our summer home, and would love to have a Viking range for that home too. I'm sure we will find the right one to fit nicely in this beach house too. "GREAT JOB VIKING". WE LOVE IT
