Do You Own a VENT A HOOD Exhaust Hood Over Your Stove??

I'm with Joe on this one. I'm not the cook, but I'm the guy that cleans the hood. I'm also the guy who, in spite of a degree in physics, fell for the line spun by VentaHood. I should be ashamed. Ours is old -- about 15 years -- and it only has one speed (the right speed for getting the grease out of the air!!). It's noisy. Neither the cook nor I like it.
I confess, I don't clean it often, and when I do, the fan 'squirrel cage' usually needs to be cleaned. It's hard to get off, it's hard to clean, and it's hard to put back on.They could have designed that better! My planned solution is to buy some of the metal filters for a Sears hood and jury rig a mounting for them.
