Ventless Equipment

Traditional commercial kitchen ventilation draws airborne grease, combustion products, fumes, smoke, odors, heat and steam from the cook line and cooking equipment and exhausts them outside of the space through ductwork and fan assemblies. Hoods, depending on the quality, size and function, can be expensive to install and maintain. Although exhaust hoods are standard in most foodservice establishments, some establishments are not able to install exhaust hoods. If traditional ventilation is not possible a great alternative is ventless equipment.

Ventless technology does the same effluent filtering but it is done within the design of the equipment. Manufacturers continue to innovate and advance technology to increase productivity and benefit operators. For information on specific manufactures and ventless equipment, see the pages below.

Ventless cooking has grown quickly in popularity over the last several years. With ventless equipment not requiring expensive commercial hood systems, as well as a reduction in operating costs, cleaning and maintenance, ventless cooking can be seen as a more affordable option for foodservice operators. Ventless cooking also gives a wider range of installation options, including locations where ventilation is not feasible, therefore cooking was not feasible before ventless equipment. Pizzerias are one of the foodservice segments that have taken advantage of ventless equipment.  Major manufacturers Ovention, Lincoln and Turbo Chef produce the industry’s highest quality ventless pizza ovens.
