We had a very hard time picking the top 2 of this top 3 best island range hoods. To be honest, it could've gone either way, as they are similar in a lot of aspects. They have a similar form factor, which combines a stainless steel body with a tempered glass canopy. The AKDY AK-RH0481 island range hood has a beautiful black stainless steel color. Although the color possibly makes this island range hood a bit harder to match with certain kitchen colors, it exudes a sophisticated and modern look. The 343 CFM fan will get the job done, hower, we do wish it had a bit more power.
Similar to our number one spot, the AKDY AK-RH0481 island range hood has the option to convert into a ductless island range hood. We absolutely love this option! Where the AKDY AK-RH0481 beats the number one in this top 3 is that AKDY generously includes the (CF0011) carbon filter kit.
The AKDY AK-RH0481 island range hood is a solid range hood choice and has a great price-quality ratio. Its black stainless steel exterior, combined with the tempered glass effortlessly will steal the show without showing off.
Note: contrary to the photo above, the duct cover (the shaft) will most likely be stainless steel colored rather than black stainless steel colored.
