Kitchen remodel -- Venting Smooth Cooktop in Island
February 17, 2013 in Design Dilemma
Hello- I have no pictures because this is still in the planning stages - any help is appreciated. We are adding a island to our kitchen, I want a smooth top cook-top in the island but need a vent, my question is do the down-draft telescoping vents work well enough? It would go 6" below floor height with one 90 degree turn for 7' to vent. A designer told me today that unless I was a heavy cook (ethnic and deep frying a lot) That type of vent would be fine. I could put the cook-top on an exterior wall, and add a hood, but then I would loose precious counter space. :(
