How Long Should a Viking Oven Take to Preheat?
It depends on the model of oven, but most Viking ovens will take between 20 and 30 minutes to preheat. Some models have a built-in sensor that will automatically turn the oven off when it reaches the desired temperature, while others will require you to manually turn off the oven once it has preheated.
How Do You Know When the Oven is Preheated Enough?
There’s nothing worse than putting a dish in the oven, only to realize it wasn’t preheated enough and now you have to wait even longer for your meal. But how do you know when the oven is preheated enough?
First, check your oven’s manual.
Each model has different preheat times, so it’s important to consult your specific manual. That said, most ovens take between 15 and 20 minutes to fully preheat. Once the desired preheat time has elapsed, open the door and insert your hand about four inches above the baking pan.
If the air feels moderately warm (think: lukewarm bathwater), then the oven is ready to go. If it feels hot, give it a few more minutes. And if it doesn’t feel warm at all, start over from scratch.
If you don’t have an oven thermometer (which we highly recommend), this touch test is really the best way to gauge whether or not your oven is properly preheated. With a little practice, you’ll be a pro in no time!

If your Viking Professional oven’s preheat light is blinking, it means the oven is still heating up to the set temperature. This is normal and expected behavior. The light will stop blinking and stay on solid once the oven has reached the set temperature.
If you’re unsure whether your oven is preheated, there are a few things you can do to check. First, look for a light on the control panel that indicates preheating. Second, open the door and feel the heat emanating from inside the oven.
Finally, insert an oven thermometer into the center of the oven to check the temperature. If it reads 200 degrees Fahrenheit or above, then your oven is preheated and ready to use.
