Over the range microwave that doesn't vent outside?

We're in the middle of a kitchen remodel and I need to find an over the range microwave that doesn't vent to the outside. Reason is, the placement of the microwave and stove will be on a wall with the HVAC ducts right behind them. So, I can't run the vent in the wall and up to the attic and outside. I was going to put a draft hood, but the wife doesn't like them. I can't seem to find any online that self vent to the inside. Suggestions or links to some that do?

There should be a number of units available that have the option to vent inside.

You need to purchase the charcoal filter kit.

Hope this helps.:)

It doesn't work as effectively as the outside one. We used to have one - what a disappointment. Finally we got the real one - outside- what a difference! Try to come up with another plan if possible... Those are my two cents...

I had always though all units recycle, top vent or wall vent. It just depends on how your needs set up. Also would think a few on the market don't.:D
