Have Viking ranges improved over the last few years?

Kitten1313June 27, 2013

Couldn't find any recent reviews about Vikings (maybe everybody stopped buying them after all the negative reviews here!). AJ Madison has a Viking gas range at a price cheaper than the Elux Pro DF. Just wondering if they've made any strides recently. FWIW, the model is Viking Professional Custom Series VGIC5366BX

I had a newer Viking range that I got in January '13 and I didn't like it at all, well, other than the way it looked, which was very nice. But you are looking at a different model, the open burner one, which may be better. That was the one I had intended to purchase, but the salesman told me the open burner was no longer available and I took him at his word (it is still available today). My oven got extremely hot on the exterior, the control panel, and the knobs. And the oven temp was all over the place and couldn't even bake a decent batch of cookies. I returned mine and got a Wolf ... much happier!!
