The system makes vapour out of water. The lid is raised to add water. First problem: the lid only opens some 95 degrees, so it easily flaps down by itself.

Problem no. 2. The instruction says you should lock the lid so that anybody cannot by accident burn him/herself. Doing this is difficult, the knob is small, round (ball-form!), sleek, requires considererable momentum, and is situated in a narrow position, very close to the power level and actuator switches.

A close-up.
