Viking Professional Outdoor Gas Grills
Most folks know the name Viking from its excellent reputation in the kitchens of professional chefs the world over, but many people are surprised to learn that Viking also makes some of the very best professional-grade outdoor gas grills on the market today. In fact, they’ve been in the outdoor grilling game for a little more than two decades, and in that time, they’ve established themselves as one of the top manufacturers of outdoor grills and outdoor kitchen appliances available today. Few — if any — gas grill manufacturers can compete with the quality of a Viking gas grill, which is why anybody who’s serious about outdoor cooking doesn’t consider their outdoor kitchen complete without one!
Viking is a well-known and trusted name in the restaurant business. They’ve been around since the 1980s when Fred Carl, Jr. conceived the idea for the very first Viking range for the home he was building for his family. As the saying goes, necessity is the mother of invention, and Carl managed to persuade a small company in Southern California to help design and manufacture the very first Viking range. The first Viking ranges (apart from Carl’s prototype, of course) shipped in 1987 and due to the incredible consumer response, the small company was quickly overwhelmed by orders. That’s when production moved to Greenwood, Mississippi, where the majority of Viking’s products are still made today. In 2012, Viking became part of The Middleby Corporation, a global leader in the commercial food service equipment industry.
Exploring Your Options
If you’re designing an outdoor kitchen oasis, you’ll definitely want to consider a built-in Viking gas grill, but if you’re just looking to replace your cart-style (freestanding) gas grill, Viking’s got those, too. Take the outdoor series 5 by Viking. It’s available in 30″, 36″, 42″ and 54″ freestanding models, and it’s got all of the outstanding features that really good barbecue aficionados want and need …
- Solid cast brass burners
- Ceramic Radiant Briquettes for eccellent heat retention
- A control panel equiped with blue LED lights and halogen lighting inside the cover for night grilling convenience
- Heavy-duty dual position 3-speed rotisserie
- A smoker box for that great smokey flavor you’re after
- Heavy-duty stainless steel cooking grates
- Weather-proof stainless steel cart has 2 heavy swing-out doors with magnetic latches

What Makes Viking Gas Grills Superior?
Professional quality appliances (including gas grills) are built to last and must perform consistently, which is why you’ll find Viking products in the kitchens of the best restaurants in the country. In addition to using the finest grade materials, Viking has a reputation to maintain, as well as a philosophy geared toward constant improvements in performance and efficiency. Their dedication to innovation and the development of new and better technologies is one of the reasons that Viking stays at the top of their game in a very competitive marketplace.
Limited Lifetime Warranty
Not many manufacturers offer a limited lifetime warranty on their gas grills. After all, gas grills are outdoor products and are therefore subject to the elements, even when well cared for. But that’s just what you get from Viking — a limited lifetime warranty on the Series 5’s stainless steel body housing, solid brass grill burners, and the ProSear burners! The structural integrity of the interior grill parts, exterior, and drip pans are covered by an exceptional 5-year limited warranty as well. You’ve got to be supremely confident in the quality of your product to offer such superior protection!
Built-Ins Available for Outdoor Kitchens
If you, like many Americans, have decided to invest in a bona fide outdoor kitchen, you’ll never be sorry if you opt to make it not just any outdoor kitchen, but a Viking outdoor kitchen!
The series 5 from Viking is also available as a built-in for your outdoor kitchen (all sizes), along with complementary pieces like a Viking Warming Drawer, 13″ Double Side Burners or a 20″ Power Burner. As you can see, a Viking outdoor kitchen can easily accommodate a feast for a crowd! (Add a Viking outdoor refrigerator and a vent hood for a complete — and totally enviable — Viking outdoor kitchen.)
Once Available Only to the Pros
Let’s face it, few of us are professional chefs, but that doesn’t mean we don’t love cooking up a storm and honing our barbecuing skills on the very best equipment available. Luckily, Viking has expanded its reach from strictly commercial equipment to professional-grade residential ranges, hoods, refrigerators, and yes — gas grills!
You won’t find a Viking gas grill at your local hardware or big-box store, however. To get the best, you’ve got to shop with a company who specializes in barbecue equipment — a company like The Outdoor Appliance Store, for instance!
