The first things which stands out is that the AKDY AK-RH0217 is equipped with baffle filters. Compared with the alternative, aluminum mesh filters, they do a better job in trapping grease and are easier to clean. Combined with the modern stainless steel finish, the AKDY AK-RH0217 has an almost commercial-grade look to it.
Another nice feature of the AK-RH0217 are the controls. There’s a touch panel located on two sides of the range hood, which comes in handy as it’s an island mount range hood. If that’s not enough, you could always use the remote control. Another nice touch is the automatic activation, which turns on the range hood when the stove gives off too much heat.
Similar to many of its brothers and sisters, this range hood will come with a very limited instruction manual, which means that you might have to get someone to help you with the installation. Before installing your range hood, be sure to check it for dents or other damaged parts, as some people have complained about receiving damaged goods, which is most likely a result of mass production (hence, the competitive price).
