Re: Replacing Jenn air range but don't want another Jenn air
What you have is called a "down draft" cooktop, and they are very poor at removing cooking vapor and odor because 99% of what you want to vent is above the cooktop, not below it. As for choosing a different model, you can have whatever you like, what is in question is whether or not you can sufficiently vent vapor/gases when cooking.
If you can install an overhead exhaust vent, this would be far better than your current set up.
