These are the icons – the style and power that introduced professional performance to the home. We’ve made quite a few upgrades over the years, but these are still the ranges people see when they dream of a professional kitchen. Available in a variety of sizes, fuels, and burner configurations to accommodate any kitchen… it’s just a question of how big you dream.
Think of the Viking Professional refrigeration line as your kitchen armory. With refrigerators, freezers, wine cellars, beverage centers, and ice machines you’ll have enough cold storage to keep all your fresh ingredients on hand and fresher up to three times longer than other refrigeration systems. You’ll manage your food supply more efficiently and economically while making fewer trips to the market.
The Viking Professional outdoor products offer everything you’d expect to find in a kitchen – except the walls. Of course, our heavy-duty gas grills are the pinnacle of barbecue, but you might be surprised to find products like warming drawers, undercounter refrigerators, and even vent hoods in the backyard. Mother Nature likes to entertain too.
Carl persuaded a small commercial company in southern California to produce the first Viking range for him. After two years of trial, error and extensive testing, the first Viking ranges received American Gas Association certification in late 1986 and shipped in January 1987. Incredible consumer response quickly overwhelmed the contract manufacturer.
Viking soon opened its own manufacturing plant in Greenwood, Mississippi, and realized there was room for professional performance in every corner of the kitchen. By the end of the decade, Viking was operating three manufacturing facilities in Greenwood, and the Viking kitchen grew to include built-in cooking, ventilation, refrigeration, kitchen cleanup, and outdoor products. Since 2000, additional facilities have been added as the company and its product line grew. A dishwasher plant, a distribution center, and a tool and die center brought the total square footage of Viking manufacturing and distribution facilities to more than 500,000 square feet.
Viking has continued its aggressive new product development initiatives and has expanded its product offerings to encompass the entire kitchen, both indoors and outdoors. In addition to its flagship freestanding ranges, the current Viking product line includes ventilation, built-in range tops and cooktops, built-in ovens, warming drawers, dishwashers, trash compactors, refrigerators, freezers, wine cellars, and an entire line of outdoor products including grills, warming drawers, refrigeration and stainless steel cabinetry.
