Every oven I look at is a self contained unit, which means that when operational the smoke seeps out and stinks the house out. Rather like an extractor fan for the top mounted hobs when frying, is there an oven that extracts its smoke outside the building, which would obviously have to be fitted?

they sorta work like a ballanced flue, that means you dont muck about with the air gas mixture and only use with open door or window to outside...technicaly ;)
the smll is just a by-product of the food. if its a bother, i could rent out my dog as his farts would mask mustard gas :lol:

Thanks for the replies.

Today I cooked a roast chicken and to crisp the skin I had it on 270ºC, which made dark smoke and it's not the kind that smells good from a roast. Afterwards I turned it down to cook the bird, so there were only roast cooking smells in the house, but I wanted to know if there was an oven that would suck all of the smoke out, like a washing machine flushes the water cycle out and doesn't spit it into the room.

The inside is clean, it's smoking because of the temperature. In order to brown the skin I set it to high for a short time, then cover the top and lower the heat to cook the bird all the way through.

Even if any of the seals needed replacing (which they might) the smell of the cooking (or smoke) would still be ejected out from the unit as it has a fan.

I still wonder at the gap in the market for such an option, it's so strange that no manufacturer has created a solution to this more so than something specialist.

a charcoal filter at the back might work?

I checked a couple of other threads on the topic (US) and still there doesn't seem to be any resolve:

It seems that building back in the 60s had wall ovens that funnelled the cooking air to the outside, but not now, purely because of the standardised plug-n-play ease of swapping out an oven delivered yourself, and that the cavities could let the water in, leading to rot, apparently.

Are there any specialists that make ovens that ventilate through a pipe i.e. like a portable air-conditioning unit anybody is aware of please?
