One of the biggest and hottest trends in the foodservice industry is a move towards smaller kitchens and larger seating areas. As business owners and operators search for creative ways to increase sales and profits, one of the hottest products in the industry is ventless cooking equipment.
Ventless cooking has steadily grown in popularity among people in the foodservice world because it allows operators to do more with their space. Ventless kitchen appliances provide versatility. Instead of needing a hood to cook like traditional appliances, many units are now available in ventless options.
Not only do ventless options offer versatility, but the installation is more straightforward and could possibly be less expensive than adding in structural ductwork. Simply plug the appliance into a wall outlet and the unit is ready for use without the need for a traditional vented hood and the associated ductwork.

Commercial hood systems typically average between $964 and $1174 per linear foot and require regular maintenance. By going ventless, it enables you the ability to save thousands of dollars on the installation and maintenance fees associated with a traditional commercial hood system.
Additionally, traditional hood ventilation systems use an immense amount of energy and are costly to operate. Ventless convection ovens consume considerably less energy, helping you to save money on utilities while decreasing your business's carbon footprint.
How the Hoodini Ventilation System Works
The Hoodini ventilation system's efficient operation is due to its innovative design. A fan pulls air into the unit and circulates it along a catalytic converter. The excess air is pulled into the hood then drawn through a filter by a second fan, which then exhausts the filtered air out of the back of the unit.
Not only are these ovens cost effective, they are also very easy to operate. To get started, simply turn the convection oven on and then flip the switch on your Hoodini ventilation system. When the oven is ready for use, a green indicator on the cabinet front will light to inform you.
In addition, the user-friendly design takes the guesswork out of maintenance by alerting you when it is time for you to replace the filter in your Hoodini and order a replacement for your spare filter. At the same time, a red light indicator shows when the filter is full and inoperable.
