Hi all....

I'm starting some early research into what I want to put above my stove for venting purposes. Right now, there is nothing. I plan to have a custom hood made. With that being said, I am looking at inserts.

I would like to know peoples experiences with the filtering systems between the aluminum mesh style filters, the stainless steel baffle style filters, and the vent-a-hood magic lung filter. Has anyone here used at least 2 of these so that you can give your comparison? Does it draw up the cooking vapors well? Is it loud? How easy to clean the different filter types? Pros? Cons?

The vent-a-hood systems appears that it could be the easiest to clean, but it is also the most expensive coming in at just under $1000.

Thanks....I'll check back in tonight to see if anyone chimed in.
