  • Viking 6 Burner Gas Range - My "biased" Review

    Apr 3, 2006 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Good looks, solid control and well made.
    Cons: Squeaky oven door, gas range = need to clean and = hard to clean

    Summary: My wife and I moved about a year ago, leaving behind our new and wonderful GE JS968 electric, glass top range. Anyone who has read my review of that range knows that I found it to be a near perfect appliance. That being the case, I bring a bit of bias to ... read more

    Pros: After 2 years of owning VIking products, I haven't figured any pros yet
    Cons: cheaply made PRODUCTS!!  Not durable

    Summary: Both 5 appliances from Viking … all were a piece of crap!  I spent $8,000 on a refrigerator (model VISB5420)  It required 4 service calls  1) freezer door seal was replaced because of cracking after 6 months of ... read more

    Cons: nothing but cons

    Summary: Do not buy anything Viking manufactures! You will be sorely dissappointed if you do. I've purchased three products, a combination range, an exhaust hood, and a dishwasher. Approximately a third of my intended purchase. Here is the story:First in, ... read more

  • Beware the Short Warranty and the Melting Oven Pan

    Oct 27, 2010 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: I guess it's still a good stove and I like the looks of it.
    Cons: Takes time to clean but all stovetop parts are removable for a good sink scrub.

    Summary: I've had my Viking stove for 9 years and I've always loved it. However, I guess 9 years is the tipping point to move into the paying for maintenance mode. To my dismay, the metal parts underneath the oven pan at the bottom of the oven have melted ... read more

  • Over priced junk .. this is not 'pro' equipment

    Nov 18, 2009 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Burners capable of ultralow steady heat without cycling on and off as some units do.
    Cons: High price for what you get.  Poor quality despite fancy look.

    Summary: Very disappointed in our Viking stove.  This is sold as some sort of high-end 'pro' equipment, but its really does not qualify as anything more than what you would find at Sears. The gas valves are flimsy.  A burner knob broke off in my hand ... read more

  • Viking Gas Ranges -- For Masochists, Only!

    Pros: The broiler and the sturdy rack system.
    Cons: Reliability, maintenance, cleaning, construction, service, warranty. In short, a waste of good stainless steel.

    Summary: We have owned a 30-inch, 4-burner model for about thirteen years, and it has displayed every problem mentioned in the other reviews. We had the oven igniters replaced once, and I have personally replaced two more sets. It's not a fun job, but it saves ... read more

    Pros: Easy to disassemble for repairs
    Cons: See detailed review. Poor design + poor function.

    Summary: I never do reviews, but I am in this case, just to reiterate my exact same experience that dranny and schtuw have had. I bought my range in 2000 when I remodelled our kitchen. I based the purchase upon sales rep, and Consumer Reports (may they rot). ... read more

  • NEVER ever will I buy anything by Viking

    Aug 7, 2007 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Great looking $5000 stove-- people say: "ooohh pretty".
    Cons: poor flame adjustment wobbly Knobs and valves Oven hinges break Griddle VERY uneven

    Summary: Bought thinking that the Viking brand mattered and that I would have a commercial quality range. The only thing commercial about it is the look and price. I was stunned that an appliance this expensive had such poor workmanship- trim pieces out of ... read more

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Powerful burners
    Cons: Almost everything else

    Summary: My mom purchased a Viking 6 burner with griddle without the electric convection/bake feature (an extra $1000 on top of the $5000 for the basic model) for me five years ago, so I have some experience with this appliance. I worked for a high-end catering ... read more
