Viking is the brand best known for being the crowning touch to kitchens. Viking Range began by adapting commercial stoves for use in homes. The company manufactures and markets high-end, professional-grade appliances, such as dishwashers, disposals, refrigerators, freezers, ovens, blenders, mixers, outdoor grills, cookware -- and, of course, stoves. The firm, which also makes its own branded cookware and cutlery, makes both kitchen and outdoor cabinets through one of its divisions: St. Charles Cabinetry. Viking's items are made in the US and sold worldwide through appliance distributors. Viking is a subsidiary of oven machinery-making giant The Middleby Corporation.
