Turns out this lamp is really sturdy! The base is thick glass and so is the chimney. I had ordered another similar lamp at the same time and the glass on that *more expensive* lamp chimney is much thinner. Surprised me to be honest. I might buy a couple more of these.
The only negative that I am seeing is that Amazon suggests that you buy 3/4 wick replacement (well....Amazon tells you that others normally bought 3/4 wick along with this lamp). This lamp cannot accept 3/4 width as far as I can tell. I have not tried to cram a 3/4 wick in there, but the wick guide is pretty obviously snug on the 1/2 inch that comes with it. I do not think 3/4 will fit in there. So it is not Amazon's problem, it is the other people who order this lamp and add on 3/4 wick to their order. Good thing my other lamp takes that size!
Ok, one more slight negative. Well, more of a comment. The metal fins that hold the chimney in place are really soft and bendable. In order to place the chimney on the base, you pretty much HAVE to bend at least one of the fins outward. There is no way to bend it back in....so your chimney is always going to be a little loose in at least one of the 4 directions. Not a biggie, and I don't see how you could avoid it unless the fins were spring loaded or something.
A heads up that a lot of people say you should not use paraffin based lamp oil in this lamp. I personally have not seen any issues, but I decided to play it safe by mixing the paraffin with Klean Heat (about a 50/50 mix). Check out "Klean Heat" if you want another clean burning/indoor option for lamp fuel. Home Depot has it for much less than you will see online.
The parts of a standard, flat-wick table lamp are the fount (the base, where the fuel is stored), the burner (the metal part in the middle, where the wick is held), the adjusting knob (the protrusion you can't see in the stock photo, but controls the height of the wick), the wick (the woven cotton designed to draw kerosene up from the fount to be burnt off at the top), and the chimney (the glass bulb or tube with a throat, or smaller area, at the top). To use the lamp,
1. Add fuel the the fount,
2. screw the burner with wick properly inserted onto the fount,
3. make sure the wick is trimmed straight across, and adjust to 1/16" above the burner,
4. wait 15 minutes or more for the wick to soak up kerosene,
5. light the wick, and adjust down if the flame seems too high,
6. clamp the chimney back in place on top of the burner, and
7. immediately turn the flame down again, as the chimney increases flame height. Over the next few minutes, continue to turn down the flame as more kerosene is drawn up the wick, until a stable flame is established.
8. To "shut the lamp off," turn the flame down until it is nearly nonexistent, then cup your hand at a 45-degree angle over the chimney, and blow quickly and gently. The light will go out, and you will be done.
If you are buying this lamp for decoration, it will more than meet your needs. The glass is clear, the lamp is pretty, and all the "ugly" glass is underneath the fount, so no one will ever see it.Read more ›
This KEROSENE lamp fits into our solution quite well.
1. It's cheap (we bought 6)
2. It's very well built (solid and sturdy base)
3. it burns kerosene. (liquid gold in when natural disasters occur)
Oh, and the 1.5" cotton wick is cheap and easy to replace anytime. The package arrived VERY WELL packaged. A box within a box and filled with air packs and bubble wrap.
If you're looking for backup lighting that is cost effective and works great, this is it people.
The lamps also serve to set the scene during fall and winter holiday gatherings as well as romantic times. Very functional indeed ;-) I add a couple drops of pure essential oils to the lamp oil as a soft refreshing scent diffuser since I refuse to use chemical based air fresheners in my home.
The oil lamps we have tried and used and really like include:
My Favorite - we use these in bathrooms Lamplight Farms 22300 Classic Oil Lamp Frosted Base
I use these in bedrooms Lamplight 110 Chamber Lamp
We hang these outside under awnings Lamplight 52664 Farmer's Lantern, Black
Be sure to get extra wicks, as well!
Lamplight 9995 Flat Oil Lamp Wick, 5/8-Inch, 3-Pack
I recommend using Lamplight 60009 Clear Ultra-pure Lamp Oil, 32-Ounce to which I add a few drops of my favorite essential oil for delicate scent without chemicals.
