"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!!"

"Received my lantern about 2 weeks ago, had a chance to use it and am loving it so far. Puts out good light and quite a bit of heat too. Wayyy bigger than I thought it would be but can tell that it will last a long time. Love it!"

"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."

"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!"

"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."

"This came from Lehman's packed super well! It's a beautiful, well made lantern. It's big, but not outlandishly so. It's just a D-Lite with an extra big fount added on. You can look at the step at the top of the tank, the same size as the D-Lite's fount, to see how much bigger it is. It's not awkward to carry, but is a bit heavy with a full tank. I just walked 2 1/2 miles in the hills with it, though. It's OK for carrying, but the D-Lite would be handier. Where the big tank shines is when it's used for emergency backup lighting and can go a long time without refilling. It looks just like a 150% scaled up version of my Little Wizard that I've had for 40 years. I love it! "

"I would like to add an excellent rating to those already posted here. I ordered the lantern to have in case of power outages and the moment it came out of the package I was impressed with its generous size and obvious quality. I picked up some lantern oil at a local hardware store, used an Internet search to learn how to use and trim a wick, and lit the lantern. It worked perfectly on the first try. No smoke, no soot, no odor. I plan to purchase another Jupiter lantern and am convinced that having two will be all I'll need for lighting purposes during our next ice storm/power outage. Thank you, Lehman's!"
