Range hood - why it's needed ?

toyopl | Feb 20, 201308:12 PM     18

I'll be transitioning from electric cooktop to my first Gas range. I'll be going with Viking D3 30'' RDSCD230-5B and Viking 30'' pro hood VWH3010.
I'm wondering why exactly do you have to vent, do you have to vent every time you run your stove and how many cfm for a 30''.
On our electric top we don't usually need that much venting, I put our 600cfm on lowest setting when cooking and maybe a medium speed on smelly foods.
