Hi Jeremy, I have a stove hood, had to replace the motor but mainly use my Fantastic Fan. It's an amazing vent and has both operations for In and Out. Other CT owners, like Tom G removed his hood vent and then installed two CPU fans because both of them draw less than 3 amps...don't quote me on it. You can search the files here or go over to the uHaul
Facebook group and ask Tom G directly.
p.s. Chuck, many of us do cook outside, but as Sharon says that first cuppa Joe and my oatmeal is what I use my stovetop for to start the day.
I've cooked sausage too but found I don't do that too often.
