This is not my first Stansport kerosene lantern. It's actually my third. I bought the first one on impulse on my way camping one day several years ago, and it "leaked." I exchanged it for another one at the store where I bought it, and that one "leaked." Fast forward a few years, and I've learned a bit about kerosene lanterns and I wondered if the "leaking" wasn't just improper usage on my part. So I just bought this one.
I took it out of it's packaging, inspected it for any obvious problems, and there were none. Then I removed the globe (pull up on the tab at the top of the lantern-that's not a hook for hanging) and the wick burner so there was room for a funnel. I added 4 oz of kerosene from a measuring cup through a funnel, with the lantern sitting in a big stainless steel mixing bowl. I did this so I could be sure I didn't spill any kerosene, and I didn't over fill it. You really don't need to go to these lengths). I trimmed the wick to straight and flat across, and then replaced the burner and the globe. After lighting it, I let it warm up and then adjusted the flame.
An hour later, no leaks. It works fine.
I think this explains my previous leakage problems (I filled them up all the way), as well as leakage of most of the reviewers here. The main issue is that this is 125+ year old technology. You can't just turn it on. You have to use it properly and give it a bit of maintenance. This lantern, or a version costing five times as much. That's both the charm and the challenge of these lanterns.
Having said that, it's not as nice as a Dietz or a Feuerhand. The globe is a bit wavy, and the wire used for the globe lift was cut so that it leaves a sharp end. The paint doesn't look like it would hold up for a long time outside.
But it's an $8 lantern, and as such, it works. For my money, I'd rather spend the extra $5 and get a Dietz, but if your price/value calculation is different, you may be happy with this.
I remember reading a couple reviews mentioning this but it was def a minority. Well now I pretty sure Iw as not paying attention that there was probably more and the outnumbering positives were all fake unverified reviews.
No other way to explain it. Here we are, prepping for power outages (thankfully only 6 hours) and we haven lamps.
Cannot be more disappointed.
Bottom Line: If you want some cheap tin red looking lamps for decoration, these are your guys. If you want functionality, move on - nothing to see here. Save your money and hassle of having to send these greasy oil slicks called lamps.
1. One of them came with the glass broken. (It was broken during manufacturing because it was wrapped in shrink wrap and the broken piece was missing entirely.)
2. The “Stansport” brand sticker along the bottom is practically impossible to get off. It peeled off in tiny pieces leaving that annoying/ugly sticker residue.
3. I ordered two red lanterns and they’re two different shades of red. Not a huge issue for me, but I’m pointing it out in case this would bother someone else planning to buy more than one.
Unfortunately my party is today, so returning or exchanging isn’t an option.
I’m not thrilled with this purchase.

Aesthetically, the lantern is beautiful and the size of the lamp is perfect. I had initially purchased the smaller sized one ( Stansport Small Hurricane Lantern (Red, 8-Inch) which seemed more like a toy than a functional lantern (side-by-side picture comparison will be included). This lantern, however, is the same size as a regular lantern and has a sleek design and beautiful color.
Functionally, the lantern follows suit with classic lantern designs and is very simple to use, the adjustable wick moves smoothly and the lantern lights easily. Very easy and user-friendly.
Overall, if you are not intending to use this lantern as your sole light source, but rather as a prop or gimmick I believe this lantern is the one for you. I would recommend it highly as a prop. That being said, if you are looking for a dependable camp lantern to use as a real light source, I would steer away from this product and look for another one.
Note: For those of you who have never used an oil lantern before I will provide some instruction below:
1. Fill the reservoir with oil
2. Lift the chimney (glass part) up to expose the wick (via toggling the lever on the side of the lamp)
3. Light the Wick
4. Drop the chimney back down and adjust the wick length (spin the regulator) until the lantern is not smoking
I purchased 2 of these items, The fuel lid opener works fine, The glass is easy to clean or remove. Overall, I am very satisfied for what I have paid and what I have got. The only issue I had was the choice of colour and I resolved that by repainting it with a spray paint. I am happy with the product and I recommend this item. I hope you found this review helpful.
Aesthetically, the lantern is beautiful, but I wish I had bought the larger size. I had originally thought the lantern would be bigger and I will edit this review with a side by side picture once I purchase the larger sized lantern.

pero a la vez se nota que es muy resistente, luce mucho como objeto decorativo.
La compre para cuando se presente una emergencia estar preparado y no dudo
que trabajara a la perfección, buena compra.
The light from the lamp is great and easily lit if you have a long match or a longer flame than a regular lighter. You cannot get in close enough to light with a bic or similar. For the price, its decent.
Followed instructions and filled with correct flamable fluid.
and set it down, IT LEAKS, and a trail of flamable fluid, left a nice trail. NOT SAFE. but cute if you want decoration.
