I am new to this forum however I recently posted related to recent experience in purchasing Viking products.
Welcome, Buckeye 1. We're glad you found us- we're a great place to discuss equipment for the home. Did you use the search tool to dig for threads with the information you needed? I know Viking equipment has been a topic here before as I've owned some (and complained about it) over the years. Keep in mind we've been here 15 years, so the dates of posts can be important to take into account, especially with equipment.
Take a look around the site and don't overlook the articles, photo galleries, etc. You're welcome to read all the discussion forums, but home cooks like you and I should think of the professionals' forums as "read only". We do our posting in the general forums, where everyone reads and posts.
Good luck with your culinary adventures!
