I bought two of these in a single order. I bought these to replace another brand which I had broken the glass on. I assumed that any brand I bought would work adequatly but that turned out to be untrue. The paint on the top of the latern looks like someone put some tape on it when the paint was wet than removed the tape, terrible workmanship. The wick holder knob would not turn initally and the wick holder assembly was dangerously lose until I bent the holder ears down. Also, the wick in the unit can't keep up with even a small flame. That is, they used the cheapest wick they could find. Turning it up only burns more of the wick off since the obsorbtion of the wick cannot keep up with the flame. I plan on using the old wick from my other brand oil latern which had a broken glass globe to replace the low quality wick that was included in this one but I'll still have to buy another wick for the second unit. My recommmendation is to buy another brand. Without a doubt, this one is a piece of garbage.

Burns well, Easy to work, and wick is excellent. Everying worked well. I think it is very light in weight. But, I was afraid to buy a used old lantern - might have a rust hole or something. and, then, there is the glass globe. These are probably replaceable if they break, but, it is very thin. Pack it well for a trip! Or spend the money for a new Dietz.

Its functional, burner turned a little hard at first, but a few drops of veg oil helped. the wick is standard 1/2 " I dont know why the other review complained about it ? Burning right now & I'll probably order another. Love the large fuel capacity. No complaints, doesn't leak.

We use these type of oil lamps camping and it is difficult to find them with the large tanks. This is great so that you don't have to fill so often. Like to use these often at home for the calming effect. Great for when we loose power too. Have lent lanterns with the small tanks to neighbors during these times as we have quite a few of them.

The hurricane lantern itself seems reasonably well put together. however, when I added oil and tried to use it the wick was obviously not drawing oil. When I checked, the wick on this brand new item was less than 3 inches long and made the product unusable as an oil-fired lantern. I had to order additional longer wick replacements at additional cost. I do not recommend buying from this manufacturer.

Purchased 4 of these units for additional lighting after superstorm Sandy. The construction is fair at best. The gauge of metal thin, the paint easily scratched. The mechanism to lift the globe to light the wick is difficult to use at times and the thin, poor quality metal bends easily under pressure to get the globe up. The globe itself is thin, but during one use the entire globe was in flames and the glass stayed intact as I got the unit down from it's hook and lowered the wick until the flames went out.
On the upside, the tank holds a good amount of fuel, and the price is cheap. I have several kerosene lanterns and these are the first ones I've ever been nervous about leaving the room for a few minutes. I will replace these with better quality units and use these as back up.

The lamp works great however I was sent a black one instead of green, but otherwise I am happy with my purchase.

Other reviewers have commented on it, but these 12" oil lamps are really no good. They leak out of every seam - even when you don't fill above the line. Just moving it slightly causes a slow flood of lamp oil.

I'd pay a lot more for lamps that worked, but I can't find any.

The fuel tank has a pressed seam at the bottom, that seeps fuel, about a teaspoon full in 24 hours. While this is not a major problem, it still is messy. I use the lantern on the bar on my outside deck for mosquito repellent { citronella oil ] It works fine for the way I use it.
