Instead of sitting above the cooktop, retractable downdraft vents have a touch-activated telescoping operation that stores the hood away when not in use.

SLIDE-OUT RANGE HOOD INSTALLATION TIPS
When installing a range hood, be sure to measure the hood’s dimensions to ensure that it will fit in its proper location in your kitchen. It is also important to make certain that you have a nearby grounded outlet with the proper voltage and amperage to support the hood. Always consult your product manual’s installation instructions during the installation process.
DOWNDRAFT VS. VENT HOOD – WHICH ONE IS RIGHT FOR YOUR KITCHEN?
Choosing between downdraft and vent hoods all depends on your kitchen’s needs. If you’re looking to save storage space in your kitchen, a downdraft allows you to keep the cabinets above your cooking area. For kitchens that frequently end up steamy or smokey after cooking a meal, a vent hood is the best option to clear large amounts of steam and smoke.
