They make ventless ones that are easy to install and pretty affordable. They have a little filter that needs to be cleaned every so often. Although, sometimes I get on a roll, and the thing is helpless.

Yeah, my microwave above the stove has one, but it's pretty noisy and unless the pan is directly under it (as in using a back burner) it's pretty worthless.

We had an over the stove micro like that as well, it wasn't quite that bad but still only got about half the smoke. And it was noisy too!

Here's how the kitchen looks before service and before anyone else gets in to work:

we had really bad mouldy smells in India after the monsoons and I finally had the driver find me some charcoal which I shoved under the furniture and in the closets----it really did help absorb the odors

I went from having 5 cupboards to this when we bought or doublewide. One of the stipulations I put on picking out the new place was that the kitchen was big. there is a total of 25 cupboards and 7 drawers, plus the door straight ahead on the left is a pantry that is 41/2 foot wide by 91/2 foot long for all my food including my chest freezer.

What is bad about those OTS Microwave vents, is that they are not properly vented. They recirculate the air back into the house as opposed to out of the house. Boy, if I knew half the crap I know now when I bought my house!!!!

Ok, I hope these don't come out too big.
It was an awful partical wood box with holes cut out for doors and drawers that the previous owner did. We tore it all out and opened it up. It's not fancy, but, it's all I need

They do not have to be. I have one and it is vented outside.
