" Just like most everyone else has noted, the blue Dietz Air Pilot came well packed and protected. It's quite inexpensive for what it is considering most prices today. The lantern gives off quite a bright glow when turned up, but I purchased mine to provide a small amount of heat in a small 4'W x 6'L x 6'H well house to prevent frozen distribution plumbing. It arrived on time - and was just in time to prevent any frozen well pipes as the night time weather temperature dropped to 7 degrees below zero the day it arrived. With the flame turned up, the Air Pilot puts out about 1400 BTU, but it worked perfect at a low flame setting for the small well house. It also sipped its kerosene miserly at the low flame setting, and I didn't have to go check on it the following day (which never made it above 10 degrees, not considering the wind chill). When I did check the lantern, there was still about half a tank of kerosene and the well house was warm enough in spite of the still freezing temperatures outside. I'm very pleased with the Dietz Air Pilot performance as I had been using an over twenty year old small red and brass Dietz Original 76 that would only provide enough heat for about eleven hours before needing a refill. I'm just a little too old now to be going out during winter storms and, using the Air Pilot, I can wait until the weather moderates some before going out to check on the lantern. I like the Air Pilot 13.5" height because it stores well in my utility room shelves, but I may just purchase the taller Dietz Jupiter for its extended burn time of three days - if I can find a good place to properly store it where it will continue to look nice without getting damaged. The Dietz lanterns will always see duty in my home before I go outside to start the generator when the local electric power grid is out. Tornadoes and winter storms frequently cut the power off in my area, and I really don't like going outside when the weather is bad - or sitting in the dark. The Air Pilot also looks nicer than its picture and I'm sure it will continue looking nice in my use, just as my over twenty year old Dietz Original 76 has. I just wish it had some of the brass like my Original 76 has. "

"Thanks to Lehman's for prompt shipping and excellent packaging. My Air Pilot lantern arrived packaged very well and undamaged. This thing is awesome! It's easy to use and provides enough light for an average size bedroom. I use it several times a week, even though I don't need to. I just love the glow that it gives off. I'll definitely buy another one."

"I ordered 2 Air Pilots for emergency use & power outages. I like the large tank and ease of use. I accidentally knocked one off a wall hook and it survived without a scratch. My order arrived quickly and well packaged. Great prices."
