Pressure cookers are a popular, easy-to-use cooking device found in many homes nationwide. But while useful in the kitchen, they have also proven extremely dangerous.
Exploding electric multi-cookers cause severe burns and other types of severe injuries. Given most pressure cookers can reach up to 250 degrees Fahrenheit, these serious pressure cooker burns often require a trip to the emergency room for victims of the explosions.
WHAT CAN CAUSE AN INSTANT POT OR PRESSURE COOKER EXPLOSION?
These explosions can either happen upon lid removal due to the change in pressure, or randomly, releasing the scalding-hot food or liquid with no time to react. Defective pressure cookers have also caused lid to fly off the base of the cooker, leading to significant injuries and lawsuits to recover compensation for medical treatment.
Manufacturers of the devices claim to put safety measures in place that prevent these tragic explosions from happening, but pressure cooker explosion lawsuits allege that faulty safety mechanisms allow the lid to detach from the base while the contents are still highly pressurized.

Sunbeam recalled more than 900,000 crock pots due to dangerous burns and catastrophic explosion-related injuries following the Cory Watson lawsuit.
