Question about Maytag MMV4205 Microwave Oven
We are replacing microwave (that has oven-hood built-in) with like unit; existing stove-top has downdraft (center). Does replacement stove-top unit have to have downdraft? Conversely, could we get cook-top with downdraft and NOT have oven hood on new microwave (which would still be over the cook-top)? Thanks in advance for considering!
Oven hood is for conventional stove top cooking, it just pulls the smoke, oil droplets and other to the outdoor. likewise the downdraft suppose to serve the same function. If you are doing lots of deep frying, Chinese cooking or other method creating lot of smokes, the oven hood is the best. Downdraft on a name brand does do the same, but not as good as the hood.
it is your choice to have one or the other or have them both. My suggestion is to have them both. unless you are short of space.

If neither unit has an actual exhaust to the outside then it shouldn't matter which you go with. Some units actually vent the air outside, but most will just recycle the air through a filter. This is good to have on either the hood or downdraft on stove (even better). Only one is necessary to achieve your filtering so you do not need both.
