"Just received the Jupiter Lantern and was quite amazed with it's size. The box was wrapped really well and I personally have never seen that much bubble pack used on any package I've ordered.Which was probably a GOOD thing seeming that it was going to NOVA SCOTIA, CANADA. I bought the Dietz Jupiter this time and plan on buying a W T KIRKMAN#2 CHAMPION and a FEUERMAN Lantern next just to see which one I like the most and the one I prefer well order more.Thanks Lehman's, your customer service is off the charts keep up the good work."

"I was looking for a bright and well made lantern and had considered the Dietz Blizzard but found a lot of negative reviews regarding it's quality. This Champion had great reviews though. I'm impressed with the robustness of this lantern. It doesn't feel cheap and is similar to my vintage Chalwyn. The globe is very thick glass (like a glass jar) and the flame is VERY steady. I think it's worth the money. Lehman's packed it very well, with more bubble wrap than I've ever seen! Shipping was fast and cheap to Canada...cheaper than any lantern shipping I've seen!"

"Purchased the Champion #2. Well constructed (as well is it can from China) but seems to be a lot better built than the cheap ones elsewhere. I am very pleased, puts out plenty of candlepower to light my room sufficiently for the blackouts. "

"This is a great lantern. I have a large W.T. Kirkman, a Feuerhand Lantern, and a Dietz. The Feuerhand is small, well built, and burns very smooth but I don't care for the globe lifting lever (one has to hold the lever with one hand or it pops back down). However, it is still one of my favorites. The Kirkman is very large and robust. The globe lifting lever is very good (locks open solidly). Doesn't burn quite as smooth as the Feuerhand but I still haven't got the wick trimmed just right. The modern Dietz is ok. It doesn't feel as well built but the globe lifter is better than the Feuerhand (as in it will lock open). Spend the extra few dollars and go for the Kirkman or Feuerhand."

"I bought two of the large size lantern. They are LARGE! These are fantastic, easy to fill with fuel and the cage protects the glass chimney well for those of us that are a little clumsy. I live in SD where power outages are frequent in the winter. It gets so cold here with the wind chill that I have a hard time keeping flashlights on because it's just too cold. These lanterns allow me to see very well in the barns, stay lit even when walking in high wind, and are easy to carry and hang. They are also great for fooling the neighbors when the power is out. They give off so much light that it looks like my power is still on in the house. I highly recommend this lamp for indoors and out. Made well, sturdy and very efficient. I feel safe using it even in a barn full of hay."

"We purchased the large lantern. Believe me, it is a FULL SIZED lantern. It also puts out plenty of light. This is a perfect lantern for trips to the barn, when the power goes out, or just sitting on the back porch and you want to enjoy some nice light. It's worth the money."

"The last REAL lantern in production. We use these almost daily and I can tell you from experience that there is no one else that makes the real thing. Even Ditz that claims to do it is not the same to me. These are tougher, stronger and just plain work. The real deal. GET AN EXTRA."

"I know these little lanterns are meant for heavier work, but when my large outdoor event got moved into a tent at the last minute these great little lanterns saved the day! We needed to light ten large tables and preserve our "picnic" theme and your customer service rep was able to get them (and the fuel) shipped in one day. They gave off enough light for everyone to see and looked wonderful with the gingham table cloths and the mason jar floral center pieces. They didn't smoke or smell either. Thanks for the great service and quality product."

"Pros! Well Made! Burns Bright! Long Lasting Finish! Windproof! Proven Design! Quirks! More expensive to operate than 5/8 wick models,burns more than an ounce of fuel per hour. Cumbersome to walk with. Overall a good looking large lantern that will last a long time. Lehmans has excellent customer Service they answer emails quickly."

"OK So the Little Champ is my first kero lantern. I always wanted one but wasn't sure of the quality on the newer ones. Well this Little Champ lives up to it's name. It's hurricane season in Florida and I am putting together my yearly emergency kit and decided to try a kero lantern. I have a coleman fuel lantern which works great but wanted more versatility. RE indoor burning, long run time, cheap to own and operate, fun factor etc. So after about 3 or 4 tankfuls of fuel I decide that I made a wise choice. The price is fine with me as long as the quality is there. First off the build quality is above average with several spot welds on the metal which is a good thing.A cinch to clean and light. Provides an unmatched ambiance on my patio. While burning a 50-50 tiki, kero fuel combo it keeps biting insects away. I can actually sit outside and enjoy my patio at dusk and beyond. Ok so I am a happy camper so far. The little champ makes for a great outdoorsman lantern being robust enough for a bright light but portable enough to carry around. The globe is thick too. During the initial break in the bail handle popped out of its socket. I Popped right back in though,probably due to the heat cycle and metal forming. The filler cap is fussy and at first was difficult to put on. I rubbed the threads with a regular lead pencil and now it works like a charm. Overall I am satisfied with my purchase and ordered the Big Brother Champion #2. This combo gives me flexibility to have an inside fuel burning lantern and an outside fuel burner. Caution these are mildly addictive! Lehman's has fair prices and shipping!"

"I purchased the little champion and am very pleased with the size. Plenty big enough for camping and emergency situations. Would be easy to use anytime really. Packed very carefully and looks really good. I love the carry handle. I'll be getting another soon!"

"i own this lamp for two years and its my only source of light.i live in the cabin with no electricity...for two and a half years of 95% of days using it at night i can say its the best kerosene lantern i ever had....only problem i have found is ....if you lift up the glass to be able to light up the wick-the piece of metal holding the stick down worn out....but is easy to fix...but who is using the lantern almost every day like me??excellent lantern.."

"Awesome. Works very well - even in a steady breeze of 15 mph and subzero condtions. Burned 4 oz of 1-k kerosene in 3 hours of operation. The packaging protection of the lanterns is unbelievably good."

"This is an excellent lantern! It is well constructed and puts out a lot of light after it warms up. I like it's wide base for stability and safety. It is heavier built than the standard Dietz lanterns. I love it and use it all the time. I would buy again and recommend to friends. Great price for what you get too."

"Our first farm lantern was a Dietz it came with the farm and the previous owner said he used it as a kid so he knew it was pushing a hundred year old mark. It worked good yet but I decided 30 years ago I needed a new one to carry with me coon hunting so I bought a Dietz No. 2 Lantern from the farmer next door, It was newer only about 60 years old and was more modern but this year while coon hunting I noticed my son's lantern and my nephew's little lantern was brighter then mine so I decided to buy a new lantern and chose a Champion No. 2 . It is not that much bigger then my old Dietz but it puts out the light better then anyone's. It's design is not as fancy as my Dietz in fact it looks almost identical to the old 100 year old farm lantern. you can tell it was made to use not just to look at, but it looks good and there are a few features on it that make it safer, the tank has a raised place so there is more space between the kerosene and the fire and a bigger base to keep from tipping over and a sturdier carry Handle with a nail notch and the globe is easier to take out to clean. I am well satisfied with it and have no doubts it will be the farm lantern for the next 100 years"

"I bought 2 of the larger galvanized lanterns and they both leak around the base! Not cool having a flame with a pool of lantern oil around it. Rather expensive for something that can't be used."
