    Smile Stove Vent

    I recently remodeled the kitchen removing the cabinets that once held the vent over the stove. My glass top stove if located on a bar area. I really like the open space and don't want a big expensive stove vent to block the area. Someone suggested I could use bathroom vents with lights. Is that possible or what other options do I have.

    You could look into side draft or down draft units, though I don't know if they exist without being a part of the cooktop/stove. Be forewarned, side/down drafts don't work as well as overhead venting.

    I believe downdraft units are available from Broan.
    If you use bath fans keep in mind the size needed to match a typical hood vent of around 200 -300 cfms.

    Most stove vents have a grease filter a bath vent doesn't.

    Look at your different hood options. There are some 'low profile' vent hoods that come flush with standard depth cabinets and don't extend down very far either. That would probably be your best option.

    I would advise against using a bath vent for a "range hood vent", for those reasons listed.
    Browse that thingy called the world wide web for the proper product, and oh yes, good luck...
