THE GRAND DOUBLE-WICK LAMP DESCRIPTION
A Story of Light
“My father and I personally visited the manufacturer of the double-wick burner, just before the manufacturer went out of business. We fell in love with the two times brighter light and the very cool push button extinguisher. We bought every last burner he had. I then began the process of creating a lamp to go with the solid brass burner. This exclusive lamp is now assembled in our own facility.”
– Galen Lehman, President of Lehman’s

“Order soon, since we have limited supplies.”

"This is one beautiful and amazing lamp! The light output is wonderful! I can easily read a book/magazine by it without straining my eyes. Doing dishes, grinding and perking coffee are very easy to do given the amount of light. Needlework is probably something someone with good eyes could do. Even my kids like to sit in a chair next to me and read a book. I use this lamp at least twice a week for about two hours for each use. I've had no problems with the base as some of the reviewers have posted. I burn "packaged" kerosine meaning I buy it in the store as opposed to getting it out of the pump. I usually buy the "cheapest" gallon I can find. It puts out a fair amount of heat as well so it would certainly warm a small room up a couple of degrees. I would probably open up a window just a crack if using it in a small room, however. The burner assembly is solid and very easy to clean. The shroud twists off giving you easy access to clean out any dust or debris from the burner holes. Raising and lowering the wick is smooth. As other reviewers have posted: The best feature is the snuffer. Overall, I'm very impressed and would likely order another one. "

"A very nice lamp that I know is going to quickly become my favorite. I have quite a collection of oil lamps (some very pricey) and besides my two Aladdin lamps, this one is by far the brightest. It's even close to the Aladdins, although the Aladdins are a whiter light whereas this one is a bit more yellowish. BUT, this double wick lamp is much more maintenance free. As nice as the Aladdins are, the do require more tinkering to keep them working right and you have to keep a close eye on them when in use (I found that out the hard way one night). This double wick lamp on the other hand is very easy to use and maintain. The burner features a couple of very nice touches that I haven't seen on flat-wick lamps (except for one antique): it has a lever that you simply pull down to snuff the flame. You don't have to adjust the flame/wick down or blow--very nice. It also features the upper burner cap twisting off kind of like an Aladdin lamp. What this does is make it easier to light. You don't have to pull the chimney from its holding fingers--all of that comes off with the chimney, exposing the wicks without messing with the adjustment knobs. Once you light the wicks (you don't need to adjust them at all if you used the lever to extinguish them previously), you simply fit the assembly over the wicks, twist it down and that's it. Totally hassle free and a brilliant idea. The only thing I will mention that annoyed me a bit is that the fount was coated with a weird milky substance of some sort (I'm assuming from the glass manufacturing process) that really made it look rather dull. I cleaned it off as best I could, but it's still a bit dull looking. It's not that beautiful clear crystal look that some of my other lamps have. And they could stand to make it in other colors; that would be nice. But... the functionality more than makes up for it. More lamps should have these nice features (the "snuffer" and twist-off burner top). It even puts out a fair amount of heat if you use it in a cold room. Also, the oval chimney makes the flame burn very straight, flat side-by-side (kind of classy!), and consistent. Bottom line is: this is the easiest and overall best kerosene lamp I've ever used, all things considered--a real class act. I'm going to have to buy another for a backup."

"As others have noted, this lamp is very bright for a flat-wick lamp--both because it has two wicks and because the wicks themselves are wide (1 1/16"). Also as noted, it generates a lot of heat, and I assume it burns oil relatively quickly. I haven't used it enough yet to assess that."

"I was not happy with the quality of the glass. The base had some small bubbles in the glass, which made it unclear and the glass chimney shattered when I attempted to put it in the brass housing."

"Great looking lamp. I used a 4" shade ring for a rayo lamp and epoxied it on the top of burner to put a shade on. It is sharp. Wish I could add a picture to show you. The shade cost more then the lamp."

"Very nice lamp, good and bright, love the automatic wick snuffer. When lamp arrived one of the wheels that move the wick up and down in the burner just spun and wouldn't move the wick. I contacted them and they immediately sent me an new one. No hassle at all. That's important to me. This was my first purchase with Lehman's, Thank you "

"Great lamp for the most part. Puts off a great deal of light. It also puts out enough heat to warm the room it's in by a few degrees. Some things that could be improved: reservoir small for such large wicks, body is two pieces using glue between reservoir and base, difficult to find replacement wicks. As a word of caution warm this lamp up for 10 minutes before bringing wicks to full brightness. If you fail to do so the chimney could shatter from heat stress and create a hazard. However, this lamp is fantastic overall, especially for the price. Would recommend. "

"Filled with oil. Went to light it several months later, picked it up and the base fell off. The chimney went flying and broke. Why ?? If it cost 20 bucks more so be it. Make it one piece."

"This lamp is nice. I bought 2 of them for my parents for power outages or just whenever they want to use them. I was nervous about how the delivery process was going to be but my entire order made it just fine (it had enough bubble wrap and paper to survive anything) I immediately assembled them, filled them, and lite them. They put out both intense light and heat. the burner was very well built and felt solid. The only issue was the center tab of the extinguisher it was a little too tight probably would have worn in but after loosening with a small screw driver it worked great all lamps should have this feature. I also found the burner online selling for more then this entire lamp so felt good about choosing Lehman's and I'll be placing another order with them."

"The double burner puts out great light volume, lighting the room. Arrived just as promised. Lehman's Five Star service, as always. I read the reviews. Remember to check your lamp. Feather the wick, and only fill reservoir half to three quarters full. You need a air pocket between the fuel and burner, so the lamp will burn properly. "
