6. The best use is simply completing the 'work triangle'
...which consists of the stove, the sink, and the fridge. There's been a few other schools of thought on this, but the triangle seems to have held out as a pretty good kitchen design consideration.

Naturally the fridge probably isn't going to be part of the island, so that leaves the stove or the sink. Which one it should be depends on your kitchen layout.
