"We live in an apartment in NYC. We looked long and hard for a vent for our recent kitchen renovation and found the vent a hood ARS at one local show room, and then went to their regional supplier in NJ for a real look.
There seems to be no others with a system like ARS.
Installed easily. The filter alone weighs 20 lbs (not some flimsy carbon screen).
AND - it really works. We have an electric stove top (no gas here). The vent draws well and is quiet, well lit, and after two months with normal cooking, including pan-seared steaks, no grease on our walls. Easy to clean. Nothing comes out the top except fresh air.
Highly recommended when you cannot duct."

Review 2 for Vent-A-Hood ARS Wall Mount Chimney Style Range Hood CWEAH6K
by Lawn Gylander
Would Recommend: Yes
Terrific to use and beautiful
"We installed this in a house we have sold, and are now thinking of installing one in our new place.
The perfect solution if you cannot duct to the out doors. The unit takes filtered air to the ceiling where it is released, clean and cooled somewhat, into the room. The grease trapping is impressive, the fan strength was excellent for residential cooking.
The top of the unit tends to attract dust, like the top of a refrigerator does. We put nothing on that shelf area. If I buy again I will choose the design without any horizontal surface just because it will be easier to keep clean."
