HI i recently purchased the instyler max, as i was letting it heat up to full capacity i had it sitting on the so called heat pad and lucky i was sitting right next to it because i could smell this burning smell and it had started to scorch the surface it was sitting on , it could have been a house burnt down if i had left it unattended, i truly believe it should be a thicker more heat absorbing material that the flimsy little piece of cloth they provide for the price. i do like the product but the safety issue is something i think should be addressed by the company.
