Week 117 - To Vent or Not to Vent - What is your hood like?

6 years ago

Last week, my installer was flabbergasted by my choice of an island hood for my rangetop against the wall.

He had never seen anyone use an island hood away from an island. It didn't make any difference to me since the cost on the hood is low and any hood needed to be installed 6" away from the wall anyway.

The logic and cost works for me. We'll see if the esthetics work out.

There are many choices of hoods and venting options. I've always been fascinated by ones like the vent that raises from an island.

Can you share pictures of your hood/vent style and discuss how you like the performance. Is cleaning an issue? Do those OTR microwave really work well with stinky foods?
