All Viking hoods feature a nearly seamless design and a safety heat sensor. Depending on the model, the hood may also feature dimmable LED lighting, halogen lights, backlit LED knobs, warming lamps and a quiet ventilator.
Viking hoods feature a smooth, clean look and come in a variety of custom finishes, such as stainless steel, cobalt blue and apple red, allowing buyers to match any kitchen style. The heat sensor in each hood automatically turns the fan to full power when the temperature near the stove reaches 165 degrees Fahrenheit, and it returns to its normal setting when the temperature dips below 147 degrees Fahrenheit. Models with adjustable lighting enjoy bright LED lights that are replaceable and energy efficient, and backlit LED knobs illuminate and extend during cooking. Models with dimmable halogen lights provide a bright display and ample ambiance. Some models also feature optional recirculation kits.
Models with heat lamps keep food left on the stove warm after cooking while those with a tough-box ventilator keep the blower protected while quietly eliminating smoke and odor. Viking ventilators offer the industry's quietest hood and ventilator combinations, as stated on the official Viking website. Viking also offers standard wall hoods, chimney wall hoods and island wall hoods.
