Viking's 30” Dual-Fuel range combines four high-output gas burners with a large electric convection oven for a match made in culinary heaven.

Gas burners are known for high power and a wide temperature range, and the specs on these burners don't disappoint. The smallest burner bottoms out at 950 BTUs for simmering, while the largest burner cranks all the way up to 16,000 BTUs. A continuous grate covers the entire rangetop from edge to edge, making it a snap to slide heavy pots between burners or use multiple burners for a griddle. Each burner is permanently sealed to protect against spills.

The oven can be used in convection mode, traditional radiant baking mode, or a variety of hybrid modes that use both heat sources. A large 8-1/2” bi-directional fan pumps hot air for fast, even convection cooking.

In the “Why didn't anyone think of this sooner?” category, heating and broiling elements are covered and sealed for easy cleaning. The manufacturer notes that the 4.7 cubic foot self-cleaning convection oven is the largest available in any 30” range.

As part of Viking's Designer Line, styling is a bit more sleek than the company's Professional Line ranges. A large selection of tasty custom colors like, “Mint Julep,” “Pumpkin,” and, “Racing Red” are available.
