A Viking stove generally refers to one of the many rangetops, cooktops or freestanding ranges manufactured by the Viking Range Company. In addition to cooking appliances, Viking produces a wide variety of different ventilation, refrigeration, kitchen cleanup and outdoor appliances and accessories as of 2015.
Viking sells three lines of freestanding ranges – the Professional 7 Series, Professional 5 Series and Viking 3 Series. The Professional Series models are generally the higher-end lines, while the Viking and Designer Series lines are typically less expensive. The company also produces a line of Viking Commercial appliances that are specifically designed for use in restaurants and other commercial applications.
The Viking freestanding ranges are available in sizes ranging from 30 to 60 inches. The company produces ranges that are designed specifically to work with a number of different fuel types, including electric, natural gas, propane, dual fuel and induction. Many of the ranges are available in a number of different color or finish choices, such as stainless steel, black, white, apple red and graphite gray. Many of the models also come with several burner configuration options and some of the Professional 7 Series models feature the trademark Viking Elevation Burners that were originally designed for the Commercial Series.
