Viking Refrigerator Review: Next Time You Read a S*#^*y Review…

Written by Appliance Dude | January 30th, 2017

…check the date on the review. Most likely it dates from the 2000’s or the early 2010’s. Those were the “Dark Years”.


Now, I can state that there may not be another built-in refrigerator brand that I have MORE confidence and trust in selling than Viking.


Wow, we have come a long way.


When I show people the Viking built-in product on our sales floor, people are typically awed by its presence.

  • The stability and robust hinges on the doors.
  • The clear, bright LED lighting scheme
  • The metal shelves

    When you open up one of the bigger units, the 42″ or 48″ it just commands your attention.


    But the important thing is that they don’t just look pretty. The offer great features. And…they work.


    Let’s examine the feature set on the Viking built-in fridges:

    1 – they offer Plasma Cluster technology which neutralize molds, spores and viruses. They work for the lifetime of the fridge, no need to replace.
    PlasmaCLuster is used on airplanes, medical facilities and military transport. They can kill 99% of viruses in 140 sq foot room.


    2- DuraHinge – I mentioned this earlier. The new hinge system is a bear. Incredibly brawny in strength. You know that this is the ONE aspect of their refrigerators that they had to get right because of all the problems they had with the old doors.


    3 – Metal bins – the metal bins on the Viking fridge doors provide long-lasting strength and creative design that allows them to secure heavy items. The metal also retains the temp better (much better than plastic!) so the fridge doesn’t have to work as hard to stay cool.


    4 – The S#&t works! Viking’s first year warranty claims on refrigerators have PLUMMETED 73% since a peak in 2012 (one year prior to Middleby purchasing them).


    If the technology and trust in the Middleby name isn’t enough to steer you towards Viking, then the last point re: the service call drops should end the questions. There, you have hard, cold fact that quantitatively say that the problems have been resolved and the company is now comfortably on the upswing.
