Viking range switch to Samsung induction? Reliability?

10 years ago

Have had 30" dual fuel Viking since 2000. Typical reliability problems especially with oven temp. Self clean just died. Dissembled and scrubbed down the grates etc last Friday, and I'm seriously pining for an induction range for my 60th birthday. 12 years is enough.

Threads here have convinced me I will not lose out on performance switching to induction. I'm good with a learning curve and with replacing cookware. I will miss the Viking classic beefy look, but it is not worth the cleaning and the jiggy reliability. Agree?

Current Consumer Reports kitchen mag ranks the Samsung induction as comparable to Kitchen Aid in performance/reliability. Reading here suggests otherwise, though it seems earlier models had more problems.
