If you take care of your little guy, it is super reliable and you should not have any issues at all.

Many customers have machines that are over 10 years old and are still going strong.

There are no moving parts or electronics in TLG.

If you are using a stove, as long as you do not forget the unit on the stove and allow it to dry out you wont have any issues.

The TLG induction top has an automatic off feature when running in TLG mode to avoid drying out and causing damage to the machine.

Be aware that you will have to pay for the goods to be returned to Australia so that we can repair the items under warranty.

You will also be charged for return freight.

Important information

Please do not leave your little guy on a gas or electric stove to dry out, this will damage the internal tubes of the machine and is NOT covered by warranty.
