The plastic lid has a screw-attached handle with an internal screw to hold them together. This repeatedly comes loose, leaking steam and water. Being plastic, I guess, the lid won't survive repeated tightenings and that suggests the whole unit will end up having to be replaced. I'm annoyed I did not spot this planned? obsolescence.
