Please ignore the messy kitchen …

That's not messy. I can still see counter space. 😉

I’d question that choice …

 

Oil and grease from my range hood drips down onto my head.  Or into the food, depending.

I'd say that "shelf" is pretty much a placeholder for a circulation vent. I also agree on your assessment that installation should be straightforward, as it is pretty much a contained unit, that you have to fix onto the wall and plug in. So ... let's go for it 🤗

 

This is now at the top of my (very short) wish list :)

Where are you looking - because that tends to not be an apartment building? However, a friend recently bought an apartment up near Morningside Heights, and it actually came with what you're looking for. The vent goes into some sort of air shaft that the building had been fitted with; since it's an older pre-war, I'm guessing it was retrofitted to handle cooking ventilation.

 

As I may have mentioned somewhere previously, when we renovated (down to the studs), I had hopes of venting to the outside, at the top of my kitchen window. But that involved an engineering nightmare, and by the time all was said and done, would probably have worked no better than what I have now, since it involved multiple turns in the ductwork - each turn crushes the efficiency of the venting.

 

Looking at houses mostly. Taking cues from if there's already a hood venting to the outside.

Oh, yeah, I'm proud of my pancakes with vent-aged glaze of mixed oils. It's a house specialty.

At least you'll be able to curse in multiple languages whilst doing that installation yourself!!

I've already begun...I know a decent recirculating unit is going to cost a bit, and I'm trying to figure out how to pull this off.
