A question from Tamar - if she can't vent outside, does she need a range hood?
I am planning a kitchen renovation and looking into new appliances. My historic coop won't let me vent outside, so I would have to get a recirculating hood, which isn't very effective. Moreover, there are no upper cabinets over the range, so if I would have to install an expensive chimney-style hood and then not vent it outside.
Is it even worth it to look at hoods if it will be expensive and likely not do much? Should I just be religious about opening the window right next to the range? Get a fan? I am not planning on buying a professional range, but I'd like a decent gas one. I've been thinking about a Bosch.
