We have spent countless hours developing our special UCO candles. Wax formula, wick size, and other features were specially engineered to make these the ideal candles for our lanterns. Other candles can "melt down" prematurely due to improper wax formula and can leave significantly more soot on the heat shield compared with our candles. We recommend using only UCO candles in your lanterns.
WARNING: To prevent fire, keep burning candle within sight. Never burn a candle on or near anything that can catch fire. Keep out of reach of children and pets.
