Hi Patricia, it was indeed the Viking Burner...it was quite amazing. And yes it would be a great thing to have on a day when you have lots of cooking to do. It just plugs in and away you go.
As far as where to buy them, I am not sure. You can order them through Metrokitchen and likely through Viking. I haven't noticed them in any of the kitchen stores yet.
Good luck today...enjoy your Thanksgiving. It's my favorite holiday. I am also going out for dinner and I made the Spiced Pumpkin Cheesecake (from Rouxbe) to bring to the party.
