"I bought one of these lanterns from Lehman's in 1998 and have used it nearly evey night since, on our ranch. I am now going to order a new one even though the old one is doing fine.Large fuel tank, great price."

"The first lamp wouldn't open correctly to light and the wick adjustment wouldn't turn. The second one worked a lot better, but when I raised the chimney a second time, the lever popped off in my hand. No repair available for the part."

"Quality could have been a little better. Wick adjuster is hard to turn. For China mfg. it is top quality. If it was made in USA it never would have gotten past quality control. For the money it is a very good value."

"This lantern really cranks out the light, and I suppose it could supplement a small level of heat in much smaller spaces. For the price, you can not go wrong! In my fairly modernized mountain cabin these lanterns are handy during power outages, or just when I feel like being off the grid!"

"I was very pleased with this Air Pilot lantern. They fit very nicely on my mantle. I got them for my husband as a present, and I can't wait for us to use them. I went with Lehman's because I knew they would package them securely and take pride in their customer service, since the lanterns do have glass bulbs."

"Hi-Just opened my new Dietz Air-Pilot: what a honey of a lantern- I have a doz + kero lanterns from a 1909 Shapleigh Hdw (IL) to this newest... It's not like we have no electricity, I luv having a reminder how far Ive come! nothing compares to a lantern glow sitting by a warm stove yet. This one will keep my covered-orange tree from freezing. When I begin feeling what I missed in life, I look back on my past & think.. "but just look what God DID give me?" then, sleep like a baby! Thx, Ur quality speaks itself. A J Startz,Victoria TX "

"Got my Air Pilot two weeks ago to compliment my 1941 Embury Air Pilot that my Dad used in the calving barn. I would say my new lantern is of similar quality to the 1941 model, is bigger, holds more fuel, and is brighter. I have nine hurricane lanterns and I think this is the brightest. Noticed some discoloration of the top parts after burning lamp oil for a few hours, but that just adds character! Highly recommend this lantern!"
