Does anyone NOT have a cooktop vent?
Starting a kitchen facelift, not a complete remodel. Changing to stainless appliances and tiling the backsplash. Keeping the same cabinets and countertop. I have a smoothtop glass cooktop that I plan to keep and an under cabinet non-vented hood that needs to be replaced.
The man doing my remodel came yesterday and suggested that I don't need a hood at all. Said the non vented ones don't do much any way and that I could just install lighting on the short cabinet above. Says he does it more that you realize.
Is this an idea you would consider? I actually don't use the fan much anyway. But it seems to provide a barrier between the steam and grease and the wood?
Please advise, this forum has been so much help already!
