Dietz #2000 Millennium Cooker Lantern

I ordered this lantern to have something as a light/heat/cooking source in the event of a power outage.  It is lightweight, and it does throw enough light to read by (for a while at least).  It came with two little pots, I think one is supposed to be a frying pan.  You could fry one egg, or one small pancake.  It was rather quick heating up cold coffee, so I imagine it would heat soup or the canned meat in broth ( http://fundamentalrefounding.ning.com/forum/topics/how-to-can-meat-... ) in just a few minutes.  I keep it handy, we often lose power here with summer storms, and winter blizzards.  I'll list the particulars below:

Price: $29.95
Shipping Weight: 6.00 pounds

The Dietz #2000 Millenium Cooker Lantern was developed to heat water or food for emergency or camping use indoors or out. Its compact design is similar to the Dietz #30 Little Wizard lantern, and will burn for 23 hours per filling. Included is an aluminum plate and 12 oz. cup to heat water, soup or a small meal, as well as a snap-on bracket and hold-down pegs to prevent tip over when used outdoors. A must have for emergency preparedness kits.

Specifications
■ 12" Height, 6" Base Diameter 
■ Plate and cup: 4 1/2" OD ■ Average 9 Candle Power, 5/8" Wick 
■ 17 oz. Fount Capacity, 23 Hour Burning Time 
■ Apprx. Thermal Output: 1100 BTU per Hour 
■ Operates on Average at 4 Cents per Hour worth of Lamp Oil

 

As with anything, shop around!  Rahthrae saw this same lantern on an imported goods website, for $60.95!  The Lehmann Non-Electric catalog sells it for the same price as W.T. Kirkman.  I found W.T. Kirkman great to deal with, and would not hesitate to purchase from that vendor again.  Check it for yourself here: http://www.lanternnet.com/Merchant2/merchant.mvc?Screen=PROD&St... 

I used FloraSense lamp oil in it, purchased at WalMart for around $6 for a gallon jug.

I'll answer questions about it, as I am able!  JG

Bumping for new members to see! 

Well, I did it! I tested my cooker and I love it! Quality piece of equipment! It lights very easily by lifting the globe with the handle on the cooker. I filled the double handle cup with exactly one cup of water and set it on the provided cradle for cooking that attaches to the top of the lantern. It took approx 9 minutes to boil. Saw my first bubbles at around 8 min 35 seconds. I don't care if it took longer to boil as long as I can have coffee or heat up food in it! This thing is nice! I may just get another one! It comes with extra wicks, a base that clips on the bottom to make it sturdy for cooking and 4 stakes to put through that base to secure it to the ground as well, along with all you see in the pictures below!  

Im tweeting things out.
