For those of you that have one or more Mypressi Twist.
You should check the condition of the pot's lugs.
Two days ago, mid-extraction mine literally blew up. The force was so great that it forced the Twist down onto the cup and saucer below it that that exploded across the counter and floor.
I used to crouch down and watch the extraction, marveling at the tiger striping, glad I gave that up or I'd be blind now!
Three of the four lugs that connect with the wand shears off simultaneously, wow!
I'm therefore looking for a non-working Twist for spares I guess.

+1 Glad you're okay.

Is there any sign to look for? Did the lugs look different/worn prior to the incident, or did they look 'OK' and just break unexpectedly?
