Take a minute to look around your house and the various lights you have. They’re not just in the living room, kitchen and bedrooms, you’ll find them in the garage, outside the home, and in utility rooms. But, what do you do if a kitchen oven light bulb goes?

It’s bound to be something that frustrates you every time you use the appliance. Whether it’s your oven light, a cooker hood bulb, or the light in your microwave, there’s a vast array of lights to keep an eye on and maintain.

Will any light bulb work in an oven?

You will require a specialist light bulb to work in an oven. The light bulb will be manufactured in a way to make it suitable for use in the high temperatures created inside an oven.
We recommend replacing an oven bulb with a trusted brand such as Samsung, Osram and Crompton Lamps, you can rest assured you’re choosing a brand that’s reliable.

What bulbs are safe for ovens?

Due to the high temperature generated inside an oven, a halogen or incandescent light bulb can be relied on to operate up to 300°C and fit many different makes of domestic ovens and rotisseries.
Halogen light bulbs are made from a quartz glass material which can resist the high temperatures of an oven and the light bulbs are manufactured with heat resistant components for reliable performance.

Can I use LED light bulbs in my oven?

No, LED light bulbs do not have the heat resisting properties of a specialist light bulb designed to operate in the high temperatures of an oven.
We recommend the use of a halogen or incandescent light bulb designed specifically for this purpose.
