Does the thought of 8 burners, dual convection and miles of stainless steel get your heart racing? Maybe you’re set on that ceramic flattop stove that’s so easy to clean, or the traditional 4 burner gas cook top that’s been reliable for years. Whatever your preference, the range is undoubtedly the heart of any kitchen. It’s where everyone congregates waiting for that perfectly bronzed turkey to emerge on Thanksgiving, or that succulent glazed ham on Easter.
Probably the most well known company in premium stoves is Viking Range Corporation. They claim to have the most “popular widths, surface configurations and color finishes” around. Viking offers widths from 24″ to 60″ with all gas or dual fuel options. (Dual fuel means the cook top is gas while the oven is electric.) The home cook can achieve perfection in cooking with 15,000 BTU burners along with a low simmer setting to heat the most delicate sauces. The oven can be set for convection or conventional baking.
