"i got one of these after reading all the reviews. I have a few other dietz lanterns but this seems to be the end all b all. some of the blizzards are brighter I sadly have a blizzard that I love but it is leaking after being damaged ( its gotta be over 50 years old). The jupiter is nice large tank less maintenance etc... It cranks heat out for what it is and light. There are better choices for heat and light but they also suck down more oil the jupiter doesnt. A recent power failure and I relized the ones i have are not enough and ordered 2 more jupiters. I figure they have a few more uses then just light etc.."

"This is a great lantern that gives off a lot of light and enough heat to keep greens in a small greenhouse from freezing solid. Burns a really long time on a fill up because the tank is so large."

"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"."

"Great lantern!!!! My husband hates the odor of kerosene and put off-road diesel in it. The next day he put it in the bathroom for over an hour with the door closed. NO ODOR and burned soot free. Now, he has requested that I order him two more!!"

"We bought two of these lanterns,then had a 24 hour power outage in sub-zero weather. One kept the pump house from freezing, the other kept the chicken coop warm, 1500 BTU's each. I'm sure we will be using these in the greenhouse on cold nights this spring. Thank you, we love these lanterns/heaters."

"I bought 2 of these for hurricane preparedness. My only regret is that these are only in that garish blue. I was delighted at the very large size, surprised at the light weight--these aren't heirloom quality! However, for their purpose, they seem well suited, light easily, and at least the bright blue will ensure they don't get lost!"

"I purchased two of these lanterns because they were highly reviewed by other shoppers-for good reason. My primary use for them will be emergency lighting/heat source in my Urban home. They were packed exceptionally well, did not leak when filled and had smooth wick adjustability. The Jupiter burns just as bright as the D-lite model. The only flaw I found with the product is the manufacture quality on the two I received-the intake draft tubes that connect the chimney top(if that is the correct terminology) are noticeably not at 90 degrees with respect to the oil/kerosene tank. Other than this very minor defect, I am very happy with the way this lantern functions."

"Bought two of these to replace a couple old junkers in case the power went out this winter. I was amazed at the price when they came and I realized just how big they really were!!! They work great and I am extremely pleased with them."
