Seeing inside the oven

I have an ordinary (less than $1000) gas Kenmore stove. I'm happy with it, the temperature is correct and steady, no complaints at all. The oven has a glass door, and a light bulb. But to *really* see inside I must open the door -- not always good for the contents.
So I'm wondering if there are ovens out there with really well-lit, large and clear views of what's baking, when still closed?

  1. I'm happy with this Electrolux. What do you think?

    Sorry for the dirty door lol.

    I wonder if you can just use a higher wattage bulb.....

    1. Some of the newer ovens have upgraded to halogen bulbs that are much brighter than the old incandesent bulbs that were in ovens. We have a new Electorlux Icon and you can see very well in my opinion. Much better than the old GE it replaced.

      1. I used to have a low power (15W??) bulb in my oven and couldn't see without opening the door and using a flashlight. But now I have a 60W bulb in there and it's much better.
