DO NOT PUT BOILING WATER IN THIS
on 3 February 2011
Do not put boiling water in this.
My daughter put boiling water in this, leaving a reasonable amount of space (i.e. not up to the top)and put the lid on securely.. walked from the kitchen a few paces, the metal sides sucked in and the top blew off. She has suffered a dreadful burn to the inside of her forearm, it has been dressed for 2 weeks now, had a tetanus injection (recommended by GP) and has been in absolute agony. Luckily she had just put her 12 month old to bed and wasn't carrying him at the time. She will be contacting Consumer Affairs & Thermos (in Australia) about this. This is a DANGEROUS product for boiling water. There is no warning accompanying this product advising not to put boiling water in it. Please be warned.
