Customer Q&AAsk a Question

Did the bottle design for this candle fuel change over time?
Yes, Sterno improved the bottle structure for safer handling per the Global Harmonized System (GHS) restrictive flow testing requirement. The new design also no longer requires the GHS warning label for a more appealing aesthetic.

Note that these improvements slightly changed the size and shape of the bottle, which may result in it no longer fitting in a container that you previously used.

I use these with product #22380268 and it looks fantastic. Much cheaper than at my local supply stores. Just as I expected, clean neat good product, and what I was looking for.

Liquid candles are the way to go. There is no messy wax residue or burnt/black wax that looks poorly on the tables. They seem to last a while and are really use for the servers to use and get ready for dinner service. No odd smells, they keep clean, no issues so far.

Suzana S. from Chive Kitchen on 10/20/2017

Love Love these candles........ so much better than the regular messy wax candles! I purchase often in lots of 10+ to keep them on site!

Stavroula G. on 06/06/2017

I have been buying these liquied candles countless of times, they always do the job and is a good replacement to more standard tealights. Will keep buying these for sure!

Marco L. from Eastern Promises Food AB on 03/08/2017

These are truly smokeless when lit. Easily lit and long lasting. They are the perfect subtle lighting to add to a formal dining ambiance. Mess free packaging.

Rushabh P. from Best Western Plus Windsor Hotel on 03/24/2016

Perfect for one of our clients that needs more than the standard 8 hour, but less than the standard 12 hour liquid candles. With a great price per hour and dependable flame, I'd highly recommend.

Toby G. from Avid Door Ads on 08/26/2015

Good value for the money. These last a couple of shifts and don't cause the black smoke on your glass that typical tea lights would.

Emily W. from Chanticleer Eatery on 09/06/2014

These smokeless candle lamps are best suited for outdoor dining! Great for nights where its comfortable outside! Good for the summertime! Long lasting fuel canister!

Eric K. on 06/07/2012

Good value for the price, but when you light an entire roomful at once, the smell is very strong. This didn't happen with other brands as badly.
