Customer Q&A Ask 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.

My name is Kenny Bowers and I am the Chef owner of Kenny’s Wood Fired Grill in Addison, Texas. Honestly, there is really three main things to a restaurant, you’ve got the food, you’ve got the service, and then the rest of it is ambiance. Ambiance is everything, because it affects the way the food looks, it creates energy. Lighting is huge, what we do is we shut the blinds to darken everything out, almost like you’re in Vegas, then we lower the lights, and put the little lamps out on the table. When you add the lighting it totally changes the whole mood and ambiance of the restaurant. It has a big effect on it. One of the things I love about table top lighting is the fact that when our restaurants get really busy, and when people sit down at the table, everything is kind of dark around them and once you sit down it becomes very intimate and you almost forget about what is happening around you.

    candles candle hour standard wax hours lamps lights smells black
    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.
    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!
    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!
    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.
    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.
    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.
    The 10 hours Sterno Candle Lamp is a very good product. I will continue to purchase this product. The Sterno Candle lighting is quiet beautiful and serene. Thank you, irving
    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!
    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.
