Glass Oil

Should oil Burners have water?

I have two glass oil burner that says no water should be added, only about 10 drops of oil.
Then I have a stone one, I just got it, and that one says you should place water and then 5 drops of the burning oil into that.

This seems a bit weird to me since oil and water are nonpolar and polar? So I'm not quiet sure, are the stone ones different from the glass ones? Cause the portion of water is way more than the portion of oil.
Darky: I have this... thing for oil burners. I'm like... obsessed with them? They are so pretty!!! They are great. They make me happy. I need to buy new oils... like walk on the beach... that'll be my next one.
o.O- when will you answer me?
I've never persisted on anyone so much....

These burners, are they oil lamps? This guy in the answer below says adding water prevents overheating in models that don't compensate for this, this seems pretty reasonable to me. I'm sure you know a bit about the heat capacity of water and its amazingness ;)

not much to do with polarity though I'm afraid. Now that I think about it I'm pretty sure that's why they told you to add water, the heat capacity of oils is not anything like that of water.
