Does anyone know if there are commercial NSF listed ovens that don't require a hood. I have a hood now but am thinking of relocating to a new space that has an apartment above the storefront. It would be much easier to have an electric hood less oven.

I have never seen one Idk if Jenn Air makes a commercial oven but that might be a good place to start looking.

check with your health dept to see what hte requirements are. Since I was a caterer and was dealing with fat in the cooking, I was required to have a hood. I have a friend/baker, who only did cakes with an electric oven (not gas) and his HD inspector did not require him to have a hood.

I was required by the health department to put in a hood (fire supression system) to bake muffins!!! Ridiculous!! Fire inspector got rather mad that health department was trying to mandate fire rules. As Deb said, the hood is for stove top cooking of anything that could catch fire - mostly grease. I could have put in a convection oven and not been required to put in a hood. You might want to check with both the health department and the fire department for local rules.

I have a double convection oven and still needed a hood. So, it varies and like everyone else said, check with both the health and the building inspector.
