"I’m rather disappointed in my Jupiter. But I love my Blizzard which I ordered at the same time. The smaller Blizzard (also Dietz) gives off more heat. The Jupiter’s knob is so difficult to adjust – I have to use a rubber jar opening to turn the thing. The Blizzard’s knob is easy. Also, as I’m struggling to get the knob turned on the Jupiter, the lever for raising the glass globe is in the way, making it even more frustrating. It should be on the other side. I bought the Jupiter to warm my hoop house, as apparently that’s what it was originally designed for. But I take my Blizzard out instead, or sometimes both. Now I have to decide if it’s worth it to return it. Maybe I just got a bad one."

"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."

"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"."

"This lantern is AMAZING,It gives off 12-14 CP of light and a tank that never seems to run out of fuel, Very easy to maintain and I also burn Aladdin Lamp Oil,that stuff is incredible no smell even after 6-8 hours of burning. The only issue is the burner wick adjustment it is very stiff so what I did was SNAPPED a pair of vice grips on the adjuster and made it flat so you have more EASE on turning it( like the FEUERHAND adjuster)OVERALL LOVE IT AND DEFINITELY RECOMMEND."
