Default Light bulb for range hood

Can anyone recommend a good light bulb to use in a range hood? Our builder had put an energy saver, which blew out in a few days. Shouldnt we use bulbs rated for use in applicances? I thought a range hood bulb should be resitant to heat & moisture?

I would suggest an LED light bulb, assuming the hood takes standard style bulbs. They are solid state (e.g. no moving parts like filaments or gas) so they should be relatively stable, and there's no worry of toxic substances if they were to break.

What kind of bulb does the range hood call for?

I've always used a regular incandescent bulb on the builder hoods and never had a problem.

I managed to find the elongated bulbs for range hoods in Lowes, that seems to work fine for now.
