    Some. A local cooking school/catering business I do some part time with has Viking stovetops and ovens. Mostly good experiences. Burners are a little close to have a large (+20 qt) stockpot and lg skillet on same side but that is worked around.

    Suggest you add a lodge (or other) reversible grill plate to your kitchen toys. Viking has an optional one we use sometimes but its a pia to clean. The grill plate will add the versatility of a small flattop to your stove - when you want it. The one below works well but watch the flames wanting to come thru handle area.


    Also suggest you ensure your exhaust hood is top notch. You can burn a lot of stuff fast with that stove. Don't ask me how I know that.

    Only down side to them is service, when/if required. The Viking guy wants about $300 to walk in the door. Then he orders parts... May not be an issue with you cause they're pretty bulletproof and you appear to be quite handy with stuff that burns.

    Have fun.

    Vent-A-Hood is a great choice -- they are about the best value out there for going over one of those stoves. Randy, the biggest issue w/ Vikings over the last 5-10 years has been with the igniters, although other stove manufacturers have had similar issues as well, since many seem to buy from the same igniter manufacturer. Should be an easy DIY if any go bad; don't pony up $$$ for a repair pro until you are sure you can't fix it yourself. Is it NG or do you have to use propane?

    I will second Wildboar's observations. I have had my 48 inch 6 burner with grill for about 12 years. I have replaced about 20 igniters for the cooktop, the over (gas) burner tubes three times (they rust out), the oven ignitors 3 times, and an oven control unit once. Most of the burner grates were out of level from the factory, I had to add washers to correct this.
    The grill sucks, the heat is very uneven and has been broken for about 4 years. I'm not fixing it because what's the point - it SUCKS.
    Parts are easy to find, thank God!
    I bought it scratch and dent for 50% off, otherwise I would be pretty PO'd.
    I can't recommend it because while I was able to do all the repairs myself, I would have to think they would of amounted to thousands of dollars all together.
    Not sure what I would recommend, but I think I will try a Wolf when this POS finally dies.
