Stove venting

When using your AI stove, how do you deal with steam and smoke?
Seems like an above stove exhaust system is needed.Click image for larger version

Smoke or steam will set off the smoke detector. So I usually open the roof vent; if the steam or smoke or smell is bad, I turn on the fan. If it gets too bad I also open a small window to create a through-flow of air out through the roof vent.

I open the small window next to stove and the roof vent with fan on. This clears the stuff from stove OK. If I forget then the smoke alarm goes off - a good test. 😊

When I'm cooking on the stove, the tip-out window behind the stove is open, and the MaxxFan is open and turned on. With fresh air coming in the window and smoke/odors going out the roof vent, I almost never have a problem with steam or smoke.

Even boiling water with roif fan and windows open causes alot of moisture directly above.

Yep, yep & yep. You can also run the bath fan for extra venting.

The MaxxFan is multi-speed, and you may have to run it faster to give it more power to draw off the steam. But don't open all the windows, just the ones behind the galley; you want to create a breeze that blows right past the stove. The other windows should be closed.

...aaaaand the smoke detector goes off every time I make toast no matter what I open or how I vent. So don't think this is unusual if it happens to you.
