Low profile (height) hood--baffles or mesh really superior?
It's been months we've been thinking about venting and reading about it and trying to make a decision. We've finally zeroed in on what will best suit our needs and the quirky design of our kitchen--one of the less obtrusive flatter hoods like an upside down T or one that is only very slightly pyramidal in shape.
I know these styles are not considered primo as far as venting, but this is what will work for us. (And, we've now lived without any venting at all for four months and been fine with cracking open a window on the rare occasions when we've felt a need for it.) We're not big into frying or woking, and our primary goal with a hood is to remove the excess heat that our gas range puts out.
Now that we are down to choosing which of similar models to buy, we have a choice of many models with mesh filters or a very few models with baffles. in this situation is there a clear cut choice or better solution? Thanks.
