"I've been using a Dietz Blizzard for over 10 years, camping as many as 10-15 times yearly. It has also been used at home during power outages. It continues to serve well. This is probably one of the best lanterns in the Dietz line."

"I bought the same lamp today, but without the name brand at Walmart for $5.97. Both made in China. So, if you want to spend $11.98 more buy it here. Just saying folks."

"The product reached me quickly and was packed to sustain a tornado! I am disappointed with the quality of the lamps. They are stamped with "Made in China" and are I don't see the quality of the lamps I have from my parents. I wish the description would include the country of orgin. We need to be supporting Made in America."

"Okay, I was worried about purchasing this due to the uneven quality of Dietz in China. However, this attractive, large size, black and brass lantern opens properly and has not leaked. Yay! Where have their brass lanterns disappeared to? They were so pretty."

"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 just bought this lantern and brought it back with me to Germany where I now live. We use lanterns in our garden house where we have no electricity. I've purchased Feuerhand lanterns (which are great), but wanted something larger (and brighter). It is a large lantern, and brighter than the Feuerhands. The Dietz is maybe a little lower quality than the Feuerhands (most notably the globe (the Feuerhands' globe is heat resistant glass)), but not much. Also, I can't complain - the price of the Dietz is around $15 - about an hour's wage. I can't imagine these lanterns cost only an hour's wage back when they were first produced in the 19th Century (probably more likely a few weeks wages). Sure, I guess you can find these lanterns cheaper, but personally, I would rather patronize a store like Lehman's rather than the huge conglomerates. We're always complaining about nothing being manufactured in the US anymore, but then we continue to seek the cheapest item. I'm personally amazed they can produce a lantern so inexpensively (even the Feuerhands here are only 20 Euros). "

"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. "

"This lantern is very bright and lightweight. I prefer to have a site glass to go by when filling it up. That's not a complaint of this lantern, just a preference. I use kerosene with a pine additive that I got at Lowe's. I can smell it, but only enough to be acceptable to me."

"I got what I paid for. It's a good lantern at an affordable price. Now I would like to purchase one made in the U.S. and compare the two. When I do, I will write a review. "
