Stove hood light!

Has anybody out there found a way to "improve" the light that is part of the stove hood? I've replaced the bulb with an LED bulb, but the light output is still pitiful.
Wondering if the light fixture itself could be replaced? Even thought about a stick-up light attached to the wall beside the stove (or even under the hood itself - concerned about the heat and cooking steam generated for that location).
I don't want to replace the hood, just improve the lighting!
Any ideas 💡

There are fairly bright LEDs that will fit. Check the lumen output & go for the highest. Of course you could go big time & do the SAM-1 upgrade. High & low light & 3 speed fan...

In addition to the light improvement the SAM-1 is quieter and moves a lot of air. A whole lot! If I could I would love to have a SAM-1 in the house
