    I reckon though that in your average kitchen, bulbs near the kettle or stove would be in a more humid environment than the sink, because (in our house anyway) we usually run cold water in the sink mainly just to wash things, but often have kettle/pans with lots of steam.

    I spose if you do lots of washing up in very hot water tho then the sink area would be more humid - but I'd still expect bulbs near stove/kettle to be affected.
    True, we hardly do any washign up as as we have a dish washer, but the tumble dryer is not a condenser type so the outlet is in the kicthen going into a bucket (very posh) this produces a lot of condensation, the two bulbs near to this have gone.

    Maybe its not to do with humidity, but to do with the power supply. Notice how when you switch the kettle on or something te light flickers. This works the same with the shower, maybe that has something to do with it.

    what about the ones by the kettle / cooker? (lol, not sure how many bulbs you have in your kitchen..)

    They should be on totaly different circuits, the lighting on the lighting main the kettle on the ring main. Only lamps should flicker, the lights shouldn't unless there is an external power supply problem or your fuse box is overloaded.

    Crana - There are 4 bulbs in the kitchen, 3 in the bathroom, I like light bulbs. My second word I ever spoke was light bulb.
