A lifesaver when the power went out. We had no heat and at least we could have hot drinks. Did take 20-30 minutes to simmer 3 cups of water for tea when the house was 55 degrees. But worth it! (Oh, and it gives light too.)

Love this lantern ! It is not only attractive, but it gives great light as well. The candles really last a long time. I now have 2 of these and use them whenever we have severe storms, which happens all year long in Kentucky. These light up the room and I can even study & read with them. The top warms & keeps coffee/hot chocolate warm too ! Thanks Lehmans for offering such a high quality product !

We were a little disappointed with this product. Much smaller than I anticipated - my fault for not paying attention to the description better. Candles should have been dripless as the spring mechanism constantly gets waxed up and needs frequent cleaning.

I love this lantern,and especially like not having to use lamp oils etc. I used it as soon as I got it and had no problem with drippy candles and I thought the light from the 3 candles was excellent. I also heated water on top for hot tea.I will be buying more,great for use when the power goes out and for camping.

This lantern gives good light and it quiet (as opposed to my pressurized lanterns). It also can be used indoors as it gives off no fumes. Its well-made and if used with the candles that come with it, provides nine hours of drip-free smoke-free light. It can be used to heat a little bit of water, but it does so very slowly. While this may be a plus, its also a drawback... the top gets extremely hot and can cause a bad burn if touched. The only other negative is having to buy the same brand of replacement candles for it instead of using my own homemade candles.

We were quite disappointed in this product. Even with the three candles the light was very dim. The flame went out frequently and the wax dripped badly into the lantern. We switched to one four inch diameter candle and got better light but still have a significant dripping problem.
