Are Pressure Cookers Dangerous?

As pressure cookers have gained popularity with American home cooks over the last 20 years, appliance manufacturers competing for market share have invented safety locks and pressure regulators to make consumers feel safe purchasing and using their products. But some manufacturers have failed to make sure these safety mechanisms work as intended, causing some pressure cookers to explode and cause injury, including:

  • 2nd to 4th degree burns
  • Cuts
  • Broken bones
  • Concussions
  • Eye injuries, which can lead to vision loss or blindness

My Pressure Cooker Exploded. Should I Talk to An Attorney?

Consumers and their loved ones injured by faulty pressure cookers may be able to recover compensation for defect-related injuries, such as
