Viking is considered to be a high end appliance brand. Some consider Viking Stoves to be the gold standard in cooking, outside of french ranges like a Lacanache. Viking ranges, because the Viking brand is so popular and well-known, fetch a significant cost premium. It is, therefore, helpful to know how to compare the price of Viking oven and ranges before you buy, since it is such a large investment to purchase a Viking. This article will help you to understand how to compare the prices of Viking stoves.
Viking vs other brands
Viking is a top brand and is significantly more expensive than many other brands. For instance, Viking is going to cost more than Jenn-Air, Kitchenaid, GE and many other brands you will find at your local Comet or Homebase store in the UK. The cost of Viking is generally comparable to Wolf ranges, and may be somewhat similar to the cost of Miele stovetops or ranges, although Viking will usually cost a little more than a Miele.
Another major factor that affects the price of Viking appliances like a Viking cooking range and stove is the size of the appliances cooktops you are buying. A Viking gas range comes in a variety of different standard sizes including five burner and six burner models. You may also get double ovens or single ovens, and you may opt to either get a full Viking range with ovens built-in or to get a standalone Viking cooktop and then ovens separately. Generally, the larger the Viking appliance, the more burners and/or the more ovens that you get, the greater the cost of the appliance will be.
Stoves and ranges sold with the Viking logo also have a variety of different features and optional add-ons that you can consider. For instance, you may want to get a Viking grill pan to go on your range, so that you can grill indoors. You may also want to consider having a Wok adaptor, so that you can cook food in a Wok on very high head using your Viking. The more BTUs (power the burners have) and the more features your Viking has, the more the cost will be.
