"We purchased two of these late last year. Both have worked well, though one was obviously made by a different person than the other; there is more attention to detail and perfect function. These can't be beat, for foreign-made lanterns."

"I can't rate this 5 stars because I haven't actually lit it yet. However, we camp a great deal and I wanted these for that purpose. They are much larger and heavier than I'd anticipated, which is good. I think they will do the job very well, but as I said, I haven't actually used them yet. "

"Wonderful value, and hats off to your packing and shipping staff. I'm sure if they had included a carton of raw eggs in the package, they would have gotten through without a crack. Best packing I have ever seen."

"Wonderful lantern! I use this regularly when fishing at night. It provides plenty of light and is incredibly easy to use and maintain. I have used it also when the electricity has gone out during winter storms. Definitely worth the price. I highly recommend this item. I have just ordered a second because of the good quality and efficient/effective usability."

"I have this blue one as well a Black and Gold. The plain blue looks great with the sterling color trim and the lamp is great for display and lighting. A good choice for general camping use or for atmosphere in the home."

"I have several Dietz lanterns, my blizzard being the largest. The blizzard is almost impossible to blow out in any weather. Someone mentioned using odorless lamp oil. Don't use lamp oil unless you want your wick to eventually get clogged and your flame to burn weaker. Klean Heat brand heater fuel works well and is less smelly than kerosene, but is 3x as expensive. I recommend buying kerosene if you are going to use your lantern outside, because it is cheaper. You can also use your lantern to keep the bugs away from your porch buy burning a 50-50 mix of kerosene and citronella oil. You can also buy a kit to electrify a blizzard to use as a nightstand light. Personally, I like to use the blizzard (and my dietz junior as well) to do outdoor chores at night or to take nighttime walks in the country. I bought 2 Blizzards from Lehmans, one for me and one for my brother. They shipped FAST, were packed uber-well and work great...and although all dietz lanterns are now made in the people's republic of China, these blizzards and all of the dietz lanterns are solid products. Above all, buy Dietz lanterns from Lehmans! Their prices are low, shipping fast and reasonable. I bought a couple of dietz from somewhere else and they wanted 19$ for shipping...ugh! Order from Lehmans and you will not be disappointed. Believe it or not, I am a 18 year old antique collector and restorer and have picked up a little know-how about lanterns along the way. Preserve the past and Keep those lanterns burning! !!!"
