Viking Cooktop Design Flaws

By 

from Chicagoland

Pros

  • Large burner boils water extremely fast
  • Looked great before using it

Cons

  • 25% of simmer range does not function
  • brown spots appear around burner after 1st use
  • low simmer range allows gas leak

Best Uses

    Comments about Viking 30" Stainless Steel Gas Cooktop:

    I have been using the VGSU5305BSS00 for a month now. After the first couple uses, I noticed brown spots that appear around the burner. The manual says to clean with warm soapy water. These spots will not come off. When trying to simmer, you have to manually look under the pan/pot to ensure you still have flame. That might be acceptable if you are only cooking with one front burner, but when you have 2 or 3 burners going, this is totally unacceptable and unprofessional. Further, if the flame goes out while on low simmer, gas keeps spewing from the cooktop. My wife smelled gas from a different room when we were finishing up dinner one evening, so it's not a small amount. The product literature says SureSpark Ignition System ensures automatic ignition/re-ignition should flame extinguish at any time while cooking. Viking sent a service tech out this morning. They said there is nothing that can be done with the low simmer/gas issues. The tech called the factory to confirm. The tech recommended Flitz for cleaning the burner. I really wanted to like this unit, but there is a serious safety issue along with aesthetic concerns. ABT/Viking, are you listening? If other consumer have similar issues, please speak up. There weren't any critical or useful reviews at the time I purchased this product.

    Spots keep appearing

    By 

    from IL

    Verified Buyer

    Pros

    • Love the looks and function of the cooktop.

    Cons

    • Dark drown spots appear around the burners

    Best Uses

      Comments about Viking 30" Stainless Steel Gas Cooktop:

      The dark spots that appear cannot be removed. They appear the first time each burner is used. Abt swapped out the first unit we had. Spots appeared again. See like there is an issue with the metal around the burners.

      performs well and looks great

      By 

      from Lake Forest IL

      Verified Buyer

      Comments about Viking 30" Stainless Steel Gas Cooktop:

      This is really a well made and great looking cooktop. That said, if I was designing it however, I would have the first knob for the lower left burner (they got this one right) then the second knob for the Bottom right burner, the middle knob for the middle burner, and the 4th knob for the upper lh and so on. You have to reach all the way up to the furthest knob to turn on the closest burner. Really just not thought out (or over thought out by morons), Lastly, I would suggest a very high grade of stainless for the base, like a 304L grade. The base sheetmetal stainless with its low chromium content is cheaper to manufacture, and it shows. Someday, some manufacturer will use a high grade of stainless in a nice thick gauge, it may be $100.00 more to build, but certainly be worth it, making the cooktop look better and easier to clean and more durable.
