***Requires Custom Panel and Handle or Optional Panel/Handle Kits***
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.
From lasagna encrusted casserole dishes to delicate bone china, Intelli-Wash dishwashers know when to take it easy with a gentle mist and when to scour with all their considerable might. Unlike normal dishwashers, which simply adjust the duration of wash time for different cycles, Viking dishwashers actually alter water pressure, temperature, and speed.
The custom front option allows you to take the revolutionary performance of the Intelli-Wash dishwasher and integrate it into your own cabinetry. With locally supplied front panels, the unrivaled power of the Vari-Pressure Intelli-Wash system blends seamlessly into your kitchen. And with Quiet Clean performance, your guests will never know it's there.
This dishwasher uses 276 kWh/yr and has an estimated yearly operating cost of $30.61.
Your operating costs will depend on your utility rates and use. The estimated operating cost is based on 4 wash loads a week and a 2011 national average electricity cost of $0.1109 cents per kWh.
