Anyone have the Silit steamer pot/insert combo?

Just received mine via Amazon (they were less expensive than Natural Lifestyle for this particular Silit item) and sent it back for an exchange because the glass lid didn't seem to sit "flat" and centered properly when placed atop the steamer insert. When I examined the inner lip of the glass lid I noticed a very tiny bulge in one spot; not sure if that was causing the issue but decided to request an exchange just in case. They are backordered on the replacement and so in the meantime I'm wondering whether I got a dud or perhaps they are all like this?

If you have one, does the lid remain centered in place or does it shift slightly to one side as soon as you put it on? (this is an empty pot, btw) I find it hard to believe that an almost-$200 item would not have a 100% snugly-fitting lid but I'mnot surprised by anything anymore when it comes to quality control. :-/
