Unhappy Distillation - experiment fail

Hello people!

I tried experimenting distillation with these following tools that I bought on ebay:

https://www.ebay.de/itm/250ml-24-40-...cAAOSwz7NaeENI

I just mixed 100ml water + 100ml alcohol. I turned on my cooker, since I don't have a bunsen. Everything was fine, but after the liquid started boiling, it got pressurized and the lid flew away (together with the liquid inside).

I suppose the distillator was not releasing the pressure properly?

Thanks in advance!
