When starting to put the Akdy range hood review together I was surprised to see the amount of choice available, especially when researching the 30 inch Akdy range hood category.
For that reason I have added a comparison table at the foot of this page which will help you to compare my top 6 of the 30″ Akdy wall mounted range hoods. These models have made it on to the comparison table due mainly to the fact they have some history.
By history I mean, that they have the most reviews left by users who have actually purchased them and taken the time and trouble to leave a product report of their experiences when the stove range hood has been installed.
I personally think that these reviews at least give some method of gauging the performance of a product rather than a product without any reviews. When I am buying online, I always do a search for reviews first to help me make the right choices. You’ll find more information on this at the foot of the page beside the comparison chart.

Ensuring a Strong Enough Air Flow
When cooking, lots of steam, smoke, smells, heat, not to mention the greasy vapor, has to go somewhere and if you want to avoid it sticking to your ceiling and walls a strong fan is needed to draw these odors etc away.
The question then arises what size of fan would be required to give the proper kitchen ventilation? To find the answer to that question we need something to measure the fan drawing power and the term we use to measure this is cubic feet per minute or CFM for short.
Without going into too much detail here and to keep this Akdy range hood review short and to the point a figure of around 600 CFM would provide enough kitchen ventilation for a 30 inch hood. Obviously the height that the range hood is above the cooking range will affect the drawing power of the fan, the higher up it is, the less effective it will be. That being said, it must still be high enough to avoid continually banging your head on it.
The air flow for each range hood model has been added below each model in the list above for quick reference. The figures for these range hoods show a strong air flow of between 760 CFM and 870 CFM. More information on each of the versions such as noise levels can be found by clicking the links in the comparison table.
The AKDY range hoods are pretty easy to install and come with everything you need to do the installation up to the ceiling.
The stainless-steel filters are easy to remove and are dishwasher friendly.

AKDY Range Hood Comparison Table
Something you may have noticed and will be excused for not immediately fully understanding, is the similarity in the AKDY 30″ Stainless Steel Az668s3-75 and the AKDY 30″ Stainless Steel Az668a75.
I have been doing a bit of digging around to find the differences in these two similar looking models. It looks like the AKDY 30″Az668s3-75 has a remote control and a 1 year parts warranty, whereas the AKDY 30″ Az668a75 has a 3 year parts warranty and no mention of a remote control. Hope that helps clear up that point, enjoy the AKDY range hood review.
