I did it! The big splurge. Still the most basic Viking range out there -- gas oven and cooktop. But the difference between this model and my former Viking range of 20 years is huge (convection, which I'm sure I will appreciate when baking). I wasn't planning on purchasing a new range quite yet, but Viking has just discontinued this color -- Kettle Black. I usually tend to choose matte over shiny and it was now or never. Hopefully, it will serve me well the during next 20 years!
