    Just wanted to give you a word of caution about this product. I have been using it to prepare fresh feeds for my lo and when I went to use it today, all the coating from the inside of the flask had come away :huh: The bits were all floating in the water.

    I've emailed TT about this fault as I am really not a happy camper that this has happened.

    Just thought I would mention it as it may not happen to every flask but just keep an eye on it when you are using it. The bits inside that had come off were pretty sharp and the smaller bits would fit through the gap when pouring the water out.

    :flower:

    I had limescale in mine too but nothing else wrong. My steriliser broke a few weeks ago and they sent me a replacement pretty sharpish.

    I'll let you know how I get on when I get a reply. The stuff that came out of it is really odd, hard and sharp but lots of little bits in there too which I hope didn't get into my lo's milk :(

    I've just been to asda and got a couple of their own flasks and will try them.

    Good job I carry around a carton of milk, if that had happened while I was out I'd have been stuck otherwise!

    I was going to say, is it white, almost plastic like?

    That's what the limescale in ours was like.

    No, it wasn't limescale. I've had limescale in the kettle and it was nothing like that :/

    It's like a brown, hard coating. Feels very scratchy to the touch. I'll take some pics tomorrow :thumbup: It also made a tinny, rattly sound when it came off and was floating in the water and it was the whole of the inside that came away, like all around from the inside of the flask.

    Don't worry, you would notice! It made a loud tinny noise when I went to pour the water :wacko:
