Water Heater Idea? Answered

Hia! Would this work. I have a lava lamp base, which heats up (I think its a heat lamp). If i made a platform and put a metal kettle ( Hey! That rhymes!) on top, would it heat the water up? hat about other food uses for one? Thanks!

Well, it WILL heat it, but since there is only 40W of available heat typically, it isn't warming much.

Yes, typically a 40 W incandescent bulb that heats the special formula liquid inside the lamp. 40 W will not heat much, maybe lukewarm or slightly above room temp.

As for other uses, look up EasyBake Oven. 100 W bulb cooks small cakes.
