    Pros: There is not one pro comment when it comes to VIKING APPLIANCES.
    Cons: Don't buy a VIKING appliance of any king.

    Summary: You expect that when you spend $6000 on a refrigerator/freezer that it would work. It did not work from the day we bought it. Viking informed us that it was not their problem and that we would have to work it out with the company from which we bought ... read more
