Do as much stovetop cooking as possible on your back burners.

Why? Because most exhaust fans extend over the back half of the stovetop, but a lot of them completely miss the front ones, and the hot air from the pans rises in a column directly above each burner. So, if you use the back burners, your exhaust fan will remove twice as much smoke, soot and pollutants.
