I had no idea how to use a Oil warmer and many reviews here never mention how to use it. The Oil packaging just says use based on instructions of your oil warmer and this oil warmer said use oil based on your oils instruction. So it was a dog chasing his tail situation. I did finaly fine a site that tells you how to use this and it seems to answer some reviewers complaining about black spots forming on the inside of the oil warmers tea pot. Amazon frowns on urls so you will have to figure this out, aboutaromas<dot>com/oil_warmers<dot>htm incase this doesnt make it through the Amazon censors I will snip a paragraph from the site.
"... Place the perfume oil in the dish or reservoir of your oil warmer. If you prefer essential oils instead of perfume oils, first pour some distilled water in the dish or reservoir and then add a few drops of essential oil to the strength scent you desire. Adding distilled water prevents the essential oil to stain the dish.
Check your oil warmer periodically. Maintain an appropriate level of oil in the oil dish, and watch the oil burner for smoke. If your oil warmer begins to smoke, extinguish the candle, clean your oil warmer and start over with a new tea light...."
One thing I noticed is if you use water you will see some steam which I assume is ok, so don't confuse smoke with steam.
Also best to use non scented tea light candles, you paid big bucks for that essential oil, why mask it with cheap scented candles?!
Now about this item, it is ok. Packaging is horrible, instructions don't exist and the glaze is crappy, the inside of lid, stove are not glazed and its a drippy glaze. Very shoddy glaze work. Also like most here I think the holes in the lid are to small and it would be best if they made them bigger and the tea pot spout is closed, no hole. This would be better with a hold. I may try a Dremel on slow speed and drill a hole into it with a glass cutting bit. To get around the small holes in lid I tilt lid half out or remove it completely.
The design is nice and looks good where we have it, for what I paid, less than a ten spot, I would buy again.
The two star deductions is for the quality of glaze, no hole in spout, small holes in lid and lack of instruction of use with oil.
Hope this helps,
One note (and I will post the picture too): some people mentioned that theirs didn't get hot enough, that the base seems too far away to heat the teapot. I experienced this as well with inferior tealights. I bought some from Target without reading the label and found not all tealights are made the same. They were shorter than the standard tealight (only 3.5 hour burn time), and had a very crappy short wick too. This burner works wonderfully with a standard 4 hour tealight with a good wick (I buy the ones from Ikea).
So I tried it another way, this time bypassing the pan, and just sticking the candle directly in the oven with the tin still on it. The flame seemed to maintain it’s normal height, so I thought it was working this way, until the water started boiling, and then, IT EXPLODED! Spraying hot water everywhere, and extinguishing the candle. I was lucky my four year old wasn’t standing near it. I didn’t have the ceramic cover on the top, but if I did, I’m sure it would’ve blown off.
I also tried to make it work a few other ways, including all ways suggested by other (positive) reviewers here and had no success. Back it goes!!!
The paint on the ceramic is exactly as shown - it fades from dark-to-light blue.
The "teapot" has a closed spout (which is a good thing); the "stove" has a hole where the teapot sits; the lid of the pot is removable and has three holes in it.
The entire pot and stovetop will be too hot to touch, which can make refilling the pot a challenge when hot.
Regardless, the design is great, the usage is awesome (I love the little pot, to slide the candle in/out), and the visual appeal is perfect for doing an incognito oil burner that doesn't look like an oil burner.
To dispel the negative comments:
1. The teapot is spaced just fine from the candle - if you keep water in your pot, you should never experience any burning.
2. The packaging was fine. It's a typical little box with a few ceramic pieces in it, placed into a shipping box from UPS and shipped - they used bubble wrap - the item arrived just fine and super-fast (3 days) with Furniture Creations and Super Saver Shipping.
3. The only way to break this thing while cleaning it is if you poured cold water into a hot teapot.
