Ranges are becoming high-tech. Viking has joined with a company called iDevices to create a wireless temperature-monitoring system for its soon-to-be available Viking Professional 7 Series Range, says Brent Bailey, vice president of brand management at Viking Range. The range also comes with a temperature probe. Also, a device that plugs into the range displays the temperature of the food as it cooks. A smart phone app allows the chef to monitor food temperature from up to 200 feet away, and set an alarm to go off when the food reaches a desired temperature.
Price: $14,699 (48-inch Viking Professional 7 Series Dual Fuel Range, with griddle)
