Appliance and Oven lamps are specialised light bulbs designed for use in household appliances such as ovens, microwaves, and cooker hoods. Appliance lamps are specifically engineered to withstand high temperatures and other conditions found in appliances. They are designed to provide adequate illumination while enduring the heat generated during cooking or baking unlike regular lamps, which may not handle the extreme temperatures inside an oven, Appliance lamps are heat resistant.

Appliance lamps come in various shapes and sizes, including: Capsule lamps: These are small, cylindrical lamps often used in cooker hoods and microwaves. Golf ball lamps: These round lamps are commonly used in ovens. Pygmy lamps: Like golf ball lamps but smaller. Tubular lamps: These elongated lamps are suitable for ovens and other appliances.

Most appliance lamps are either incandescent or halogen.

LED lamps are energy-efficient, but not all LED lamps are suitable for ovens. Even if an LED lamp is appliance-rated, it should not be used in an oven due to the high heat levels.
