New Viking 7 Series Refrigerator – Reviews

Written by Appliance Dude | January 22nd, 2015

Viking is once again tearing it up at KBIS 2015. Last year they debuted their 7-Series ranges at the show and this year they’ve turned the 7-Series focus to refrigeration. I saw a prototype of this refrigerator at KBIS 2014 where it was displayed as a column-style fridge.

The first refrigerator from Viking's 7-series will be a 36" bottom mount.

In the last year since KBIS 2014 it looks like Viking has made a bunch of changes:

  • It now has 2 bottom freezers
  • The hinges are more robust (check them out…crazy strong!)
  • It now offers 2 compressors
  • The lighting is LED

    At first glance it looks like the result of cross-pollinating a Traulsen, a Liebherr and a Fhiaba. Mix them together and what do you get….could this be magic?

    Below is a grainy and shaky video (c’mon upgrade that phone!) from KBIS which gives you a peek inside the fridge. Take notice of the hinges that look like they should be on a bank vault door. Considering Vikings sad history with hinges, the inclusion of these monsters was probably a direct statement that no one will ever diss (or sue) them for faulty hinges again.

    NB – I anticipate having this on display at Curto’s in the next 4-6 weeks.
