I Love My Viking

I love to cook and I love my stove.  I got it several years ago
and it quickly became my favorite appliance.  It is so perfectly
designed.  The gas rings are wide so the heat goes up the sides
of the pan and then down instead of focusing the heat on the
bottom of the pan which leads to burning and scorching.

Although I love the way it looks, I did not buy it for it's appearance.
I bought it for it's function.  The cast iron grates cover the
top so pots and pans are easy to slide on and off burners. Each
burner has a simmer setting which is so slow you can cook a roux
all day long without having to be concerned about it.

The entire top comes off in pieces so it is easy to clean.  And
another feature that is really nice for messy cooks for me, is a
pull out stainless tray that sits under the burners to catch up any
spillage.  This makes clean up a snap.

 Even though my new house in Texas has a generic five burner
gas cooktop, I am pulling that out and replacing it with my Viking.
And since there are already two built in ovens, I will have
three ovens so we will be baking up a storm!

So I can honestly say that my stove is a favorite thing.
In fact ~ between you and me, if I had to choose between
my husband and my stove, it might be a difficult choice!

Happily Joining ~

A Favorite Thing

Bentley ~ let's take a pic of you so everyone can see
how cute you look with your new haircut!

Big Hugs,
Susan and Bentley


  1. Susan-That was my friends one big splurge when she redid her kitchen. She wanted a Viking and she absolutely loves it. She has a double (?) model with the double ovens because she baked for a small business. xo Diana

  2. You stove is amazing and I love the shelf above it. It holds many gorgeous pieces and makes your kitchen look so homey. Love all the copper hanging. This is a kitchen where a 'cook' lives. :)

  3. My husband LOVES his viking. It is his, not mine.

  4. The "chef" here would love a Viking, but we didn't have room in our kitchen. He has a Russell Range cooktop that is wonderful. Glad you get to take your Viking along. '-)

  5. I love your Viking too! Wish I had one....J

  6. Love your stove! Don't have a Viking but have a couple of friends who do and they love them. Don't blame you for taking it with you!


  7. It's nice that you didn't have to leave your stove behind. I will have to see if these are available here for when I replace my gas stove, which is very, very hard to clean.

  8. Glad you can take it with you!

  9. When my last kid went off to college, I blew the pilot light out and haven't cooked since.. . . .

  10. I can see why you love your Viking! I love the vintage tea towels you have hanging on the handle!

  11. Now I do love a good cooker! I used to have an Aga until my son, as a toddler, tried to climb on top of it! Since then, the more rings, the more gadgets it has, the better! I look forward to seeing a future post when your Viking has been installed, and also of little Bentley with a new haircut! Have a wonderful week. Chel x

  12. Sounds ideal..Wish I'd had one when I was cooking :)

  13. We are looking at appliances for our kitchen remodel, Thermador is at the top right now but haven't checked into Viking...will do!

  14. Oh good! I was so afraid you were going to end up saying you were gonna have to leave it behind.

  15. That looks like a wonderful stove and I too am glad it is going with you!!


Oliver and I LOVE and read every comment.
