The previous owners of the house we just purchased, recently remodeled the kitchen. They didn't install a rangehood and we are in need of a microwave oven. There is plenty of room above the stove for a microwave oven, so I was thinking about buying a microhood (microwave oven/rangehood combo), but then I wonder if it is really necessary to spend the additional money on the rangehood portion on the combo and maybe just purchase a nicer microwave oven and mount it above the stove. Why do I need a rangehood anyway?
