Does it Work Wednesday: Lava Seat

SIKESTON, MO (KFVS) -

Val Causey is excited to see if the insulated cushion, Lava Seat, warms her as she prunes mums at her nursery.

"I don't know about six hours though."

That's the claim: Get this pack piping hot, close it up in the thermal bag, and have a seat! First, let's see if it's hot even to start with.

In fact, we should've used oven mitts when handling this. Val takes it outside and pulls up a "Lava Seat."

"It's warm. Very warm. Feels good."

It might really feel good on those cold bleachers at football games. Val is a huge supporter of the Sikeston Bulldogs herself.

"Very handy. It might keep you warm, so you don't freeze to death when you go to those cold games."

Boy, did we put this seat to the test during this miserable weather at the Sikeston/Cape Central game.

"The weather was horrific. If ever there was a good test for this product, it was this!" said my next tester.

Sarah Garner might just be one of the Sikeston bulldog's biggest fans. She even owns an actual bulldog her family calls, Bowser!

"He even has his own jerseys."

So, with their red and black gear on, Sarah also took the Lava Seat to the big game as well as other games as she proudly watched her two sons play football.

Did it hold up six hours during the cold nights?

"I don't sit down a lot at games. I'm up and down cheering, so I think if you sit on it the whole time, maybe, but by halftime it was not hot."

However, Sarah's still cheering for this $20 product. She says it's a comfy seat and believes it did stay hot for a reasonable amount of time.

"I'd still give it a B+ only the because of the six hours claim. I'd say half of that time, it worked, and that half is still great.  Football games are usually only two to three hours. I'm pleased."

Our first tester agrees.

"I'd definitely buy it for $20," said Val.

It seems the Lava Seat scores, earning a "B+" on this Does it Work test.  If you're interested, I bought this at Walgreens in Cape Girardeau.

****Please follow the directions carefully and use oven mitts, as instructed.  You must fold the pack in half, making sure the sides do not touch your microwave.****
