How Do I Get Rid of Cooking Smells in My Small Kitchen?

Good Questions

Q: I live in a studio and the kitchen is tucked into the corner furthest from any window with no vent above the stove. Most of the time, my entire apartment smells like whatever I just cooked. The best I can do is to open all my windows (even in winter!) and use fans. Any advice?
