We have studied the three-dimensional lattice glass of Pica Ciamarra et al. [Phys. Rev. E 67, 057105 (2003)], which has been shown to reproduce several features of the structural glass phenomenology, such as the cage effect, exponential increase of relaxation times, and aging. We show, using short-time dynamics, that the metastabilitylimit is above the estimated Kauzmann temperature. We also find that in the region where the metastable liquid exists the aging exponent is lower than 0.5, indicating that equilibrium is reached relatively quickly. We conclude that the usefulness of this model to study the deeply supercooled regime is rather limited.
