New Line of Ranges Enable True Professional Performance

January 17, 2014 (Greenwood, MS) – Viking Range, LLC, a leader in kitchen technology, raises the bar again with the introduction of a new line of professional ranges; the Viking Professional 7 Series Ranges. The most innovative ranges in Viking history, the 7 Series ranges join the Viking 3 Series and 5 Series ranges as an ultra-premium extension of the renowned Viking brand, offering a new level of design and cooking performance for passionate home chefs.

Viking 7 Series ranges feature 23,000 BTU Elevation™ Burners with brass flame ports, adapted from the Viking Commercial product line.  These high performance burners are combined with a fully-featured convection oven to create a restaurant-caliber range unlike any other in the residential market.  

New features, exclusive to the 7 Series ranges and not available on previous Viking range lines, include the powerful Elevation Burners™ and ViChrome™ Griddle, a true commercial plancha/griddle with a PATENT PENDING grease containment system. Exclusive oven features unique to the 7 Series include GentleClose™ Doors on the oven, TruGlide™ Full Extension Racks, and SoftLit™ LED Lights which accent the control panel and illuminate knobs.

Like in commercial kitchens, the 7 Series ranges have elevated burners and flame ports as well as a deep recessed burner pan that make cleanup easy because spillovers do not bake on.      

“This range has redefined professional performance for the home because consumers get a true restaurant quality range, safe for the home use, with the most powerful burners available.” said Brent Bailey, Viking Director of Brand Management. “Even though the burners are the most powerful in the industry, the burners also offer the most delicate, even, gentle simmering with the VariSimmer™ Setting available on all burners.”

The Professional 7 Series Range is available in 36” and 48” widths, in both gas and dual fuel, and backed by the industry’s best and most comprehensive warranty; the Viking 3-Year Signature Warranty.  The Viking 3-Year Signature Warranty now includes a 90 Day No Quibble Guarantee which states that Viking will repair or replace a product within the first 90 days of purchase in the unlikely event of a manufacturing defect.    The new 7 Series ranges are available in 12 exclusive color finishes, including Stainless Steel.

As part of this introduction, 7 Series Rangetops are also available in 36” and 48” widths from a local authorized Viking dealer.
