When we wanted to cast light onto our stove top, we bought this inexpensive copy of a 50′s lamp to put on the stove’s high shelf. This utilitarian white metal lamp works great as a task light. Its sturdy wire-cable neck helps it crouch down and peer up flexibly, while its weighted base keeps it grounded. Takes a 60-watt bulb (we use 70-watt halogen-hybrids that give 100 watts of light).
