what's a range hood good for?!

hillsbilly | Sep 1, 2010 12:37 AM

I've been trawling the interwebs, looking at hood pictures and reviews etc etc. I had gathered that I should buy something that really sucks and is ducted outside. Then I realised, I've never had a rangehood before, and I cook all the time and have always cooked a lot since my teens, and it's never been an issue so I'm wondering if I actually need one...and what exactly for?

Is it just for smells? Because I generally like my cooking smells, and I love how my husband and kids come home and go mmmmmm, what are you making mum?!

Is it for grease? Because I am having cabinets built to the ceiling and everything that is exposed will be used and cleaned regularly.

And my kitchen is big and airy and has big glass doors and windows to the outside, so pretty well ventilated, as it is. What don't i get?
