ventless kitchen range hood

I am looking to purchase a ventless hood with lights. What are the best choices for me? Having my hood vented is out of the question according to my builder due to headers. Thanks

Unless there are some new products I am not aware of, a ventless hood does nothing more than recirculate air (and odors) minus airborne oil/grease. If a builder is involved, this makes me think it is new construction. Something got lost in the planning stages. Is it not possible to go with a downdraft system?

If you have never made a mistake, you haven't done much.

I agree...recirculating bad air never quite made sense. If that's your only option...I believe I'd skip it altogether.
