Burning olive oil requires wick modifications.
I don't know what I'm doing wrong with my lamp wicks but I can't get a steady flame. The olive oil doesn't seem to draw up into the flat woven wick properly. Should I use a different wick? Help! Thanks!--No name, via e-mail
The key to burning olive oil is in the wick. You'll need a large weave wick, and keep it saturated at all times. Lehman's (www.lehmans.com) and other companies sell oil wicks and lamps specifically for burning olive oil.
