Vent hoods and daily care

khinmn92February 14, 2013

We've been planning our new home for what seems like eons and are hoping that everything will finally come together this spring. I've been drooling over all the lovely kitchens posted here and have learned so much! My question is about vent hoods. My preference would be to have a built in hood insert, but this may be cost prohibitive for us. I do like the look of chimney hoods, particularly the ones with curved glass. I am hesitant to embrace this type though due to concerns about maintaining these on a day to day basis. How difficult is it to keep the glass clean and grease/streak free? I've had experience with a clear glass chandelier that was a real pain to keep dust free. I don't want to add an extra chore to my day to day activities so can anyone with real life experience share your comments? FWIW I'm planning a 36" induction cooktop. TIA!
