In the 70's Fred Carl Jr., a fourth generation building contractor was building kitchens for his clients and saw many of them used commercial ranges in their home. When it was time for him to build his own kitchen, he realized the commercial ranges that were offered were not well suited for the home. His wife wanted a classic looking range like the old Chambers, her mother used to use. His solution was to create a hybrid range that would combine the look and styling of commercial ranges and yet have the safety features and sizes home consumers desired.
Consistency in both performance and design should be a major consideration when building or remodeling a home. With the complete Viking indoor or outdoor kitchen, every single product works together in form and function with the same level of excellence. It's something Viking calls Design Integrity.
Viking offers complete ultra-premium kitchens and truly consistent design, while delivering the quality and performance that make Viking the true market leader. Across all product categories, the knobs, handles, bezels, curves, angles, and lines all follow the same design cues â even the grain of stainless is the same from product to product. This enables the designer to create a perfectly harmonious kitchen in one of three Viking product offerings â Professional Indoor, D3 Indoor, or Professional Outdoor.
You wouldn't install mismatched cabinets and drawers or countertops. Yet design differences are even more dramatic between multiple appliance manufacturers. Traditional or contemporary. Stainless or color finish. No matter the look you're going for, no one can match the Viking kitchen and Viking Design Integrity.
As every cook knows, perfection is a never-ending process. And the new Custom dual fuel sealed burner range is proof of that. With a spectrum of settings from delicate VariSimmer to a searing 18,500 BTUs, this is the most precise and reliable sealed burner system available. The range also offers the largest oven capacity and one of the fastest preheat times on the market. And a host of ultra-premium features will help you perfect even your most challenging recipes. Convenience and performance seldom walk hand in hand. But the remarkably easy-to-use electronic controls of this custom dual fuel range actually make even better use of its heavy-duty power and tremendous capacity. Knobs and push buttons offer both tactile control and advanced features. Mirrored displays reveal cooking and timer information, and then disappear when not in use. Very cool. But the 18,500 BTU TruPowerPlus burner instantly silences any question of style over substance.
