Range Hood Review - AKDY AZ-63175S (Wall Mount) (36")

range hood reviews - AKDY big

AKDY AKDY AZ-63175S (30")

The AKDY AZ-63175S wall mount chimney range hood looks like a straightforward, simple, but stylish addition to any kitchen. The stainless steel finish goes well with the blue tones of the LED lighting, which gives off a very modern feeling. To be honest, the AKDY AZ-63175S looks more expensive than it actually is. This is definitely one of the most beautiful wall mount chimney range hoods out there. A great bonus is that the AKDY AZ-63175S is really light, which you will be thankful for during the installation.

As with almost all range hoods, the AKDY AZ-63175S has some minor flaws. Partly due to the blue tones of these particular LED lights, they seem to come off as somewhat dim. They don’t seem to give off as much light as the LED lights in other range hood models. What doesn’t help either is that they’re located at the back, instead of the (more common) front. Another topic we have to highlight in our range hood reviews is the amount of noise the range hoods produce. The AKDY AZ-63175S seems quite noisy. Even on the lowest setting, it seems to give off more noise than other range hood models. Speaking of sound, even the LED touch panel control is quite loud (smoke alarm intensity) and every touch or command gives off this loud beep. Lastly, the installation of the AKDY AZ-63175S is quite tricky. To somewhat counter this flaw, make sure to have at least one extra pair of hands to help with the installation.

If you can overlook these flaws, the AKDY AZ-63175S is a great choice, especially if you’re looking for a great price/quality ratio.

  • Looks more expensive than it actually is
  • Light weight
  • Great bang for your buck
  • Light are quite dim (blue toned, positioned at the back)
  • Installing the range hood can be pretty tricky
  • Relatively loud
  • Touch control is loud
