Electric French-Door Double Oven Product Information (Video)
I want to introduce to you the new Viking French-Door Oven. Now the beauty of this is... This one is in demo mode right here. Do you see the nice blue lights around the knobs? We call these CoolLit, but what I want to show you is what happens when you actually put it in a mode. We're going to turn it to bake and we're going to turn it to a temperature. I want you to notice this knob in a second. It's going to start to pulse and it will pulse that blue until it gets to the proper temperature and then it will go solid. I want you to notice also the beautiful Viking Blue display here. I want you to notice the letters and the graphics. They're all laser-etched. It will not come off.
Now in this particular case, this is a french-door oven. It's got two handles, but do you need two hands to do it? If say I had something in my right hand and I wanted to open the door, you could take then grab the left handle and both doors open simultaneously. They will both close simultaneously.
Now I want you to notice this oven. Viking ovens are the largest in the industry, period. You might say, "well, other manufacturers said there's is bigger." I tell you what you do. You take this Viking rack out and you take it and try to put it in a competitive oven. It won't fit. Absolutely won't fit. You take their rack and put it in ours; it'll fit. But this won't fit anyone else's. This is the largest oven in the industry, period.
The second thing is the largest fan in the industry. It's eight and a half inches. It's probably twice the size of anything in the industry. It's two speed; it's two directions. Two speed is very important. Chefs like that. They like a slower speed for baking. They like a faster speed for roasting.
What about the reversing? What's the benefit there? Say you need a turkey. You're cooking a turkey. You get to the store late and the last one there is one ugly bird. It's arm is sticking out like this, but you have to have it. What if you take that turkey and put it into the oven? Now here's the pattern in the oven. The air is going down the right side and the air is coming in on the left side. So this wing that's sticking out is constantly getting hit with hot air. What's going to happen to this? That's right, it's going to be overdone and maybe burned. What about behind the wing? It's going to be undercooked. So, what do you do to get the back of the wing cooked? You have to turn the bird except if you have a Viking oven. It will reverse the fan. What happens... Depending on what you select, it will go automatically go forty-five to sixty seconds down the right side of the oven. Then the fan will reverse and it will automatically go forty-five to sixty seconds down the left side of the oven, eliminating hot and cold spots.
Down here at the bottom, you will also see the bottom element embossed. This is a ten-pass element, but there are two elements. As one comes on, the other goes off. The one goes off, the other comes on and that's what maintains the even cooking down at the bottom.
But the third thing is that it helps in cleanup. Because with this embossing, it will contain the spills and make it easier to clean up.
Also you notice this section right here. This is allows this oven to be serviced from the front instead of having to be pulled out from the wall.
Now the upper oven is not self-clean. The bottom oven is self-clean.
