No Longer Available

Viking introduced professional cooking to the home when their first range shipped in 1987. Now that same exceptional performance extends into every corner of the kitchen - even the backyard. Refrigerators. Wine Cellars. Dishwashers. Grills. Cookware. Cutlery. Small appliances. It's enough to turn any cook into a chef.

When people think of Viking, the bold, commercial look of the Professional Series range is the image that most likely pops into their heads. Ultra-premium features like high-performance burners, convection baking, and infrared broiling easily handle everything from crème brûlée to rack of lamb. The legendary Viking range is available in gas and electric models, as well as an array of sizes and finishes to fit any kitchen.

And for those who want professional performance without the professional look, there is the Designer Series. Clean lines and contours meld gracefully into cabinets with style, offering a striking new look for Viking. Fully equipped with outstanding features and power, this complete line of built-in products doesn't sacrifice any of the world-renowned Viking performance for fashion's sake. Haute couture meets haute cuisine.

Viking doesn't see the kitchen as a collection of products, but a complete cooking environment. Cooking isn't a chore - it's an art form. Everything must work together in form and function. Both the Professional and Designer lines deliver the ultimate in performance with a cohesive look for the kitchen. Each line offers a full range of products, so you don't have to resort to mixing and matching brands and styles. Viking offers the truly consistent ultra-premium kitchen. The complete Viking kitchen is complete perfection.

The Designer Series 36" Built-In Electric Cooktop are the first electric cooktops to offer professional-type cooking power. Their Designer Series Cooktops will accommodate virtually any kitchen.

Product Reviews
Rated 2 out of 5 by 1 reviewer.
Rated 2 out of 5 by Beautiful, expensive and poor quality The Viking Corp makes great stoves and ovens. Really top of the line stuff. But avoid anything else in their line of kitchen appliances beyond their ovens and gas cooktops, they are outsourced and fraught with problems. We've owned this ceramic cooktop for 10 years. It's really a beautiful piece, but we've had two big problems with it. 1) The numbers on the stainless steel around the knobs wash right off. Yep, the paint they used as the temperature indicators around the knobs washed off after a few cleanings. the only thing I ever used to clean it was standard dishwashing liquid, but now I have to guess what temp setting I'm on. Viking considers this "cosmetic" so it's not covered in their warranty. 2) The rubber seal between the ceramic top and the stainless steel frame separated after 5 years. Also not covered under warranty. 3/4/12
