"Bought 2 of these lanterns to keep on hand in case of power outages, weather disasters, etc. Order arrived quickly and packed so well that everything arrived in perfect condition. I couldn't resist trying out lanterns just to familiarize myself with lanterns. Workmanship is impressive, and they look as nice as they work. We have used them on our deck for a pleasing extra light outside. Will certainly purchase additional lanterns and fuel from Lehmans."

"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! !!!"

"I have had this lantern for 5 years now and it goes out for chore time every night, all winter long. It works great even in windy weather and the large tank means I can fill it less often. We have several sizes of Dietz lanterns but this one is my favorite."

"Got this lamp yesterday. It was like a time warp. I filled it with fuel, lit it, and looked around for my boots to go out to the barn to let the cows out! Just like in the 50's. I live in City but just as good quality as I remember from the "old" days. I am ready for the power outages."

"This is a very beautiful lantern, so pretty I hate to even take it outside. It holds a lot of oil so will burn for a long time. Lehman's packing is awesome. You will not be disappointed by buying this lamp. It was shipped quickly and I'm a convert and will be purchasing more from this company. "

"Experiencing quite a bad winter this year in Michigan, including a Christmas week power outage from an ice storm, followed by 18 inches of snow followed by -15 actual. I am always OVER prepared for everything but this was the one thing missing! This will cozy things up and save my batteries and hands from cranking lanterns for the next outage. Burns bright and is great to warm your hands by. Will be buying more...want one for every room! Oh...and the packaging is so awesome and it arrived very fast. Love Lehman's!"
