"Just as nice as the Dietz Air Pilot I purchased from Lehman's last year - and once again very well packaged and undamaged. Both my Jupiter and Air Pilot are blue and provide long burn times for a tank of fuel. This Jupiter just holds around twice as much fuel for an even longer burn time. Just be careful of the glass globe on the Jupiter. I removed mine to clean it and was immediately stabbed by a needle fine sliver of glass - that was difficult to see and remove using tweezers. It appears the globe was formed by heating a continuous glass fiber strand on a machine. The globe is uniform, but the end of the glass fiber was sticking out - and stabbed and broke off fully embedded in my hand before I saw it. On close inspection, I could see where the 1/2 inch glass fiber had separated off of the globe. So, be very careful the first time you handle the globe. The globe on my Air Pilot looks to have been made by a different process, and had nothing to cut or stab me."

"For use in a pump house during power outage (or anytime) to keep things from freezing up. Easier than continuous checking if the light bulb is on. Use in the barn during foaling to keep the newborn warmer, and puts a light to soothe the mother. Good for prepping too, and for "in case of"."

"Just received my lanterns yesterday and I am totally blown away at how large the tank is? Two of them drank an entire gallon of aladdin lamp oil. The black one's are on backorder so I chose the blue and they couldn't be nicer. Great finish, burned amazingly well and I can't see where I would have any problem with them. They will be used nightly to provide light by my hot tub and they cast a beautiful light yesterday evening. I will probably still get a couple of the black when they are back in stock. Thanks also to Lehman's for such wonderful and quick service. I have referred many of my patients to your website in the past several months and will continue to do so. thanks for such a great operation"

"Had intended for it to be used camping but it is too big. Will now be used for our main emergency light source. Plenty bright. Love the large capacity font."
