Default Re: Oven light

The wife was not feeling well and the fish have the Ich. So I am getting ready to stuff in a UV light (kills mico -orgs) and needed some plumbing. Good reason to kill an hour or two at the other big box (Lowe's). I took the wee one and she was drooling - wooooooooo, wooooooo. She especially liked the light department and we pretended to wash our hands under every bloody faucet that was on display. I had to pull her away from the bathtubs when she started taking off her coat and was messing with her shoes.

Anyway on our way out we hit the BBQ section. I found this portable LED light , probably 5 or 7 bulbs- bright blue/white. It runs on 3AA bats and can be either clamped, C-clamp style or stuck on a steel surface as it has 2 very strong magnets embedded in it. Cost was $20. Could not find much info on it. The reach is about 3 feet/1 meter

The sticker says, and yes this is the correct spelling

There are several lights installed around my oven.
The most important one that permit to see clearly the food being baked or cooked is the 300 W reflector that is installed slightly angled to the front of the vent entry. The reflector is angled because when the baker is in front of the oven landing area, his shadow is not directly over the food.
The following pictures, with and without flash, shows the light installation and a night picture of a pizza lighted - without flash.

jengineer - Does the light look like it will take oven temperatures for a short while or is it mostly plastic?

I still like the idea of taping it to the Pizza peel!

it was brushed aluminimum but the lens was definately plastic, could probably be used near the entrance of your oven for short amounts of time. The base has some rubber on it in an attempt to make it water resistant. I think the Luis solution is the better route.

Hey Luis.. What is your chimney made from? Is it a flue tile? How long? What is it attached to on the top? Hmmm.

Sorry I pressed the wrong mouse button.
Saying, three columns riveted to a one inch cilinder of the same metal sheet.
