If you like to do a good amount of cooking outside, an outdoor vent hood can offer many benefits. When you cook, your grill sends smoke, heat, grease, and odors into the air. Just like the range-hood above your indoor stove, this device will draw in these byproducts and move them away from your cooking area.
Why You Should Own a Vent Hood
If you spend a lot of time cooking in your backyard, you probably wish there was a way to cut down on the grill smoke you produce. This product prevents billowing smoke from surrounding your guests’ and children's faces.
When you cook in your outdoor kitchen, you are also subjecting your walls to excessive smoke. This can lead to discoloration and even peeling paint. In some municipalities, an outdoor vent hood may even be a requirement, especially if cooking under a flammable structure. This makes a great addition to your kitchen island.
