Can an A19 LED bulb be used in a stove hood?
I often have the light in the exhaust-fan range hood on whilst cooking or otherwise working in the kitchen. It's a partially-open fixture with a plastic shield on the bottom, and it's usually fitted with one of those small 40-watt "appliance" light bulbs. Can an LED be retrofitted here, or will the heat/steam/greasy smoke damage it? Many LED bulbs have warnings about not using them in enclosed fixtures or in wet areas, but I've never read any warnings not to use them over a stove.
