Topic: Viking & Royal! (11 msgs / 214 lines)
1) From: John Abbott
Neat!!  We have a niece living in California who is chef and she has just
put in a six burner Viking - didn't know they made them.  She absolutely
refuses to cook on electric.  He husband installed an exhaust system over
that beast that will suck an egg out of a frying pan - OK exaggeration - but
it really keeps the air clean. You really cannot smell what she's cooking in
the next room.  My thought immediately was what a perfect place for an
indoor drum :O)

They make 'em up to 60" 8 burner. Hmmm, oven has 1,500f, closed-door,
Gourmet-Glo infrared broiling with 18,000 BTU burner. Now that would
definitey Spanish roast and beyond! I'm researching new hoods now. The 10"
Viking hood won't work without cabinet cutting. Looking strongly at a 760cfm
PacAir... only 6" tall and will fix perfect...
Gotta go pull some babybacks off the Traeger and eat dinner. Debi said get
off the computer NOW!

i've got a commercial 6-burner downstairs, in the midst of a clean-up.  we
got it about a year ago for $50 at a restaurant auction (also got a vitamix
for $25 and a mazzer for $175).  i could have had a ten burner, double
oven, salamanca, with grill, for $25, but it wouldn't fit in the car.  same
thing for a double-decker pizza oven.  :(

I'm sure you know that the commercial units have very different 
insulation and setback requirements than the units they sell for home 
use.  You can't stuff a commercial unit into the middle of a row of 
wooden cabinets like you can with the home units.
I wish my kitchen had space for a Viking.  Sigh. :-(

I have my viking in the middle of the kitchen space with a bar against the
back if it that wraps around in a strange shape, tons of ventilation between
and at this point I have no overhead venting as my space is huge and high, I
have never had an issue with smoke or anything else. I may vent to the
outside from below since I had added and eight inch heating pipe for later
use in such an application but so far no need.

Viking makes a free standing 4 burner model as small as 24" wide! That's
narrower than the standard 30" range opening...http://www.vikingrange.com/welcome.htmlMM;-) aka Kona Konnaisseur miKe mcKoffee

Also with the commercial units you should put them on a floor that 
won't burn, something like a quarry tile.

Ok.  But then there's the price.   The VDSC 305 
http://www.vikingrange.com/cooking/dualfuel.html)would fit my kitchen 
but not my budget (a quick price check on Yahoo Shopping shows a low 
price of $3359.)
Ebay has a 30" all-gas range currently standing at $1500 (reserve not 
met!)  Hmm.

holy cow!  wow, the trendiness of these things is really taking consumers
to the cleaners.
how about a vulcan 24" 4-burner, w/oven:  $1265?
food service equipment is expensive enough as it is, without the "trendy"
surcharge.
