Most home cooks are familiar with electronic pressure cookers, if not owners of one themselves. Pressure cookers, sometimes referred to as “Instant Pots” (a particular brand of pressure cooker), can be ideal for busy, health-conscious families. Pressure cookers work by trapping steam inside a sealed pot, building pressure that increases the temperature of boiling water from 212°F to 250°F. The increase in temperature results in quicker cooking time than traditional methods. Also, because the food is cooked quicker and at lower temperatures than in an oven, on a grill, etc., the food’s nutrients are retained more effectively, resulting in quick, healthy meals. While many people may be aware of the benefits, most people may not be aware of the dangers associated with faulty pressure cookers. As pressure cookers have increased in popularity over the last two decades, so too have incidents of reported injuries caused by pressure cooker explosions or similar events. These incidents have resulted in severe burns, cuts, broken bones, and concussions, among various other injuries.
