Should We Skip Downraft For Island Cooktop?
We are remodeling and the new kitchen will end up with a large cooking island with 5 burner gas wolf cooktop. We know it's not the "ideal", but for us it's perfect... we are very social cooks and entertain constantly and do not want our backs to our guests.
So here's the problem. We know downdrafts are marginal at best... the problem is our house/ structure prevents an overhead exhaust fan entirely... So we either use a down draft or nothing. Would Nothing be a better choice since it will give us more storage options under the cooktop.
