I can't really complain a whole lot considering it's a $7 lamp. It's OK for decorative & casual use, but if you want something that will give you decent light in an emergency power outage, get something better. This lamp is very cheaply made and does not give off much light, barely as much as one candle, if that. Using good quality odorless, smokeless oil, and with a properly trimmed wick, if you turn it up at all, it burns brighter for a few seconds, then quickly decreases in brightness as the oil in the wick burns out quickly. Then the wick itself starts to burn. Better off not turning it up. Who knows, maybe with a better quality replacement wick it would function better. I wouldn't get another one.

Granted, not the best quality, but for the price, a great deal. I have used these through the winter months for my light and supplemental heat ( yes they do supply a good amount of heat too)!! I rarely turn on a light bulb through the winter ( except for Christmas lights). Pretty cozy!!!

I bought this lamp along with the Farmer's Lantern that is made by the same company. Both of them had faulty wick lowering and raising mechanism. I took the mechanism apart (as you would have to do to change the wick) and the metal was so cheap it bent and I could not ever get it back together correctly again. Even before that, the glass top wobbled on the base and did not securely attach without the cardboard that it is packed with (can't be used while burning, but could be used if only a decorative item). This item was very cheaply made and I would NOT recommend buying this product even at half-price! It is junk!!

I bought this and it's fine. I didn't have anything fall off or not work. I'm actually online trying to find more wicks. Using this instead of electricity in the home. I know. Pretty funny, but hey! trying to save here and there right? Works fine in bathroom while showering at night. It let off enough light for me. I'm a female. Still able to shave by feel! ha! But seriously, this is a great lamp. Easy to use, easy to put together. It's glass, so it can fall and break for those who have small children like me. But that will not happen in my home. Best of luck with everyone!

A few days ago we had a power outage that lasted a long time which compelled me to buy this lamp along with a bottle of the oil. Everything was ready to go and very easy to set up. Once I got my new kit home, I unscrewed the brass burner from the glass base and filled the base to just over half way with the oil. I screwed the burner back on and waited a few minutes to allow the wick to soak up the oil. The burner has a dial on the side to adjust the wick level. At first lighting I had too much wick exposed and there was black smoke but I was able to dial it down to just the right level and I got a smooth consistently burning flame that was pure and clean. To my amazement this lamp was super bright and it completely lit up the room! As I sat there watching the lamp I became humbled by its beauty and simplicity and I realized that people actually used these over a hundred years ago before there were electric light bulbs. In short I am very pleased with this purchase. I am going to but one for every room of my home so that I am prepared for the next power outage. Thank you Walmart, Randy in Aurora, CO

I purchased 5 of these lamps. I have had no problems with any of them. Came in real handy when RI was hit with that hurricane in 2011. Changing the wicks has not been a problem. You do need to be gentle with the glass chimney it is made of very thin glass. Great product.

My Mom got these for her Wedding Table Centerpieces. I got to take one of them home. This thing has come in handy for my family so many time in the summer months when our power goes out the most. I have had this lamp 9+ years and haven't had a single issue with it. Want to get 2 more to spread around the house for power outages.

I have purchased approx. 20 of these lamps. As other reviewer have written, the globes were loose, wick mechanism not working, fell apart. I have been able to fix all the malfunctions with a small pair of needle nose and some common sense. I make wood wall hanging mounts for these and no one and I mean no one has had one complaint about the lamp or holders. Yes they are cheaply made, yes they have some problems but anyone with a little common sense can overcome these problems. Don't be put off by the people that have no ability to fix simple problems.

This is a very nice oil lamp for the price! The font and chimney are well made, but the burner is the weak point. Swap it out with a replacement threaded collar burner, usually sold right next to the lamp. Unscrew the collar from the burner, fit the collar to the font, add a wick and screw the burner back into the collar. If you keep your wick trimmed and your font 85% full, it'll burn like a $50 lamp. Enjoy the light.

I love this lamp. The only problem I had is with the glass chimney. The chimney did not fit tight in the lamp collar and one day it fell and broke. I am now on the hunt for a new chimney. Other than that I had no problems. I enjoy the lamp so much I will replace the chimney or purchase a new lamp.

Availability was great. The same store we go to did not have it on the shelves yet, but after placing the order the back room where they keep the products had some on hand. So it was available almost instantly which was impressive. It is beautiful and works perfectly. I also recommend buying some extra wicks for it so you have them on hand when needed.

  • A. Ace hardware sells the 8 inch wicks for 25 cents. Even China Ebay can't come close to that. Their best deal is about a dollar per foot... usually sold in 5 ft lengths.

  • A. Wicks are available at most stores that sell the lamp or oil, but I buy mine on ebay and Lehman's on line site. Walmart does do a decent pricing, but I myself buy large amounts. One thing to remember though is that you must know the size of wick you need.

Can i use (Minola )vege oil or olive oil ? how long will it burn and the life of the wick , any disadvantage like black smoke soot ? thanks
by Simeon 1/11/2013

  • A. Kerosene is the best for the long run because it's usually available from distributors for under $4 a gallon. It's $14 a gallon from hardware stores and the lamp oil that the Dollar General stores carry is about $10 per gallon. Diesel fuel will work but it smokes too much for indoor use.

  • A. It will not work well. The oil is too viscous and won't travel up the wick fast enough. Some people have gotten a flame from that type of fuel, but it burns up the wick, makes a lot of soot, and doesn't put off a lot of light.

  • A. You may be able to use vegetable oil but you cannot use olive oil. Not only would olive oil burn poorly and throw very little light (if it would even light at all), but olive oil has a very low smoke point (which is why it isn't used for frying) and would create A LOT of soot and smoke making it horrible for indoor use of any kind. As for the vegetable oil, I wouldn't recommend it for similar reasons as olive oil (relatively low smoke point as compared to real lamp oil, burns poorly, throws little light), but I know in emergency situations it can work. If at all possible I would avoid using anything other than quality unscented indoor-safe lamp oil or clean-burning isopropyl alcohol (70% or above should not give off carbon monoxide if wick is kept properly trimmed and at correct height). Good luck :)
