Infra Red Lamp With 250 Watts Rating - Some Advice Needed

Postby Hatshepsutt » Wed Dec 04, 2013 4:41 pm

I bought this bulb/lamp to use as a method of resting meat and poultry (after cooking) so that it does not get cold. I cannot find a light fitting that is rated at 250 watts.
What will be the consequences of screwing it into a holder rated at (say) 80W?
Are there any other issues that I should consider in setting it up and using it?

Simply Build It

The worst that can happen is a fire, you should go to the supplier of the lamp and task them with suggesting a suitable socket. You must not use this lamp in an ordinary domestic light fitting.
