The Tuscany series debuted in 2015, and was on display at Design and Construction Week. That’s where we got some hands-on time with the 36-inch and 48-inch models.
As with all Viking ranges, the Tuscany line places a strong emphasis on fit and finish. The doors are heavy, the cast-iron grates are thick, and the knobs are made of die-cast metal.
Up top, every single burner is brass and can output up to 20,000 BTU. The burners are uniquely cantilevered, so they “float” above the rangetop. A Viking representative told us this design helps with airflow, but it also just plain looks cool.
Owners can also customize their Tuscany range with a stainless-steel griddle that can be used as a plancha. When it's not in use, a cutting board covers the griddle and helps with food prep.
All the ovens feature stainless-steel interiors and glide-out racks. The 48-inch ranges have an additional oven on the side, plus a storage drawer beneath. Soon, Viking plans to offer a warming drawer there as well.
The Tuscany ranges are made in Italy by Giga Grandi Cuisine, which specializes in professional kitchen equipment. Giga has a factory just south of Florence in Scandicci, and is part of the Middleby group. Middleby itself has gone on a shopping spree as of late, adding well-known consumer brands such as AGA, Jade, and Viking to its largely commercial portfolio.
The ranges start at $13,000 and go all the way north of $20,000, depending on which options you select. Available colors include stainless-steel, graphite black, bordeaux, champagne, dark blue, and antique white. Matching dishwashers and range hoods are also available.
