Do I really need a range hood?
I've never had a range hood before. They seem incredibly expensive and there seem to be a lot of complaints about them being noisy. I'm getting a 36" duel fuel range. That makes the range hoods even more expensive. If it's noisy, I know myself well enough to know that I probably won't even turn it on.
So, instead of a range hood, how about a metal potrack? I do understand I can't put combustible items directly above the range.
Am I nuts? Do I really need a range hood? For people who have had them and not have them, what differences did you notice?
