    "The Box claims this lantern/cooker can boil water. Well after a 45 minutes the half full mini pan of water was steaming but not boiling. My test run was done inside the house (so no wind and well above freezing temps). I would not count on this thing cooking anything out in our cold windy Wyoming climate. On more thing the temp required to boil at my altitude is 199 degrees. This lantern cold not even get that done.... But works great as a overpriced light source..."

    "Two comments-- No where on the box nor the directions does it tell you the type fuel required. Is kerosene ok? Second, it is made in China. I didn't know that Dietz was a Chinese name."

    "I agree that the lantern puts out good light, but it doesn't heat well enough to boil water and that is inside with the power on. Turning it up higher only produces more smoke. It is better than nothing, that's for sure."

    "Very satisfactory as a lantern, but as a "cooker", don't expect much. It will bring a room temp 6 ounce portion of canned soup up to a warm, but not really hot, temperature. Better than drinking it cold. I couldn't bring anything to a boil no matter how long I waited."

    "After experimenting I discovered the lantern does not put out enough heat to warm a cup of water after 15 minutes. I purchased this lantern and have been satisfied with the light it generates however, the quality of the cup, grill and base are very low. This kit is only worth the cost of the lantern about ($14)."

    "Was disappointed that one of the little pans had a popped rivet and the handle came off. Other wise, worked great. I found that I needed to keep the lid on if I wanted to bring water to a full boil. Just went through 5 days of no power, and had hot water for tea and washing, poached eggs, and even popped single servings of corn on top of the lantern. I had a small 2 1/2 cup stainless steel pan that fit perfectly on top."

    "I tested this Lantern out. It worked well, and for boiling water it took some time. I was in the barn and the air temp. was 25 F. and the Lantern was set on high (just UNDER smoking). 8 oz. of water in the large pan with cover on. Temp. was taken with an air conditioning setup thermometer. Start Time Water Temp 2:30 pm 40 F 2:40 pm 95 F 2:50 pm 160 F 3:00 pm 195 F 3:10 pm 210 F 3:20 pm Light Rolling Boil It did work so if it worked for water it will work for other things. It also keeps my hands warm. Thank You."

    "I love this Lantern! I've had mine for a few years now, and when they went on sale this year I knew that's what everyone was getting for Christmas! Great for heating soup, I've even cooked eggs in it!"

    "This my 2nd Dietz lantern, 1st with the cooker. Works well, I wouldn't count on it as an efficient way to boil water, but it heats stuff up nicely. Overall a good item to have for camping and/or emergency use."

    "I just received this lantern and tried it out inside my kitchen. I put about 6oz tap water into the larger cup with the lid on. It was 175 degrees in 18min and boiling in slightly less than 30min. I had the flame turned down as recommended. No soot on the bottom of the pan. The lantern seems to be very sturdy and the stabilizer would probably come in handy outside. A stainless steal version would be nice though I'm not crazy about using aluminum. "
