Injury & Death Caused by Defective Pressure Cookers

Fort Lauderdale Product Liability Attorney

Pressure cookers save time in the kitchen, but when they are not correctly designed or manufactured, they can cause serious injury. In fact, people have even been killed while using them. In 2015, our firm represented the family of a two-year-old toddler who suffered burns to over 60 percent of her body when the steam and liquid from a pressure cooker overflowed.

Manufacturers of dangerous and potentially deadly products should not be allowed to get away unpunished. The Fort Lauderdale product liability lawyers at Kelley/Uustal have won millions of dollars in compensation for people who have been injured by defective and dangerous products, including pressure cookers. If you or a loved one has been injured in an accident with a pressure cooker and you have questions about your legal options, contact our firm to speak with an attorney.

Power Pressure Cooker XL May Cause Serious Injury

The Power Pressure Cooker XL, manufactured by Tristar Products, Inc., is a popular brand of pressure cooker sold at a variety of retailers throughout the United States, including Walmart, Kohl’s, Bed Bath & Beyond, and others. Since the product was introduced to the market, it has already received a number of complaints on its quality and safety.

A number of consumer complaints are already listed online, including:

  • Release valve may move out of place
  • Release valve may get stuck, causing the unit to seal shut
  • Lid may pop off during use
  • No manual safety shutoff
  • Lid does not seal properly, allowing scalding steam to escape
  • Cooker will not shut off after the timer ends
  • Poor instructions
  • Lettering on the release valve may burn off
