Instant Pot Pressure Cooker Lawsuit Filed in Louisiana Federal Court by Johnson//Becker, PLLC

This Instant Pot lawsuit alleges that Instant Brands, Inc., the manufacturer of the Instant Pot pressure cooker, has misrepresented the safety of its pressure cookers.

Johnson//Becker, PLLC is a nationwide products liability law firm with experience representing victims of pressure cooker explosions. The firm has represented over 700 clients who have been severely burned by exploding pressure cookers designed and sold by numerous manufacturers.

Johnson//Becker filed this Complaint alleging that Instant Brands, Inc., the manufacturer of the Instant Pot pressure cooker, misrepresented the safety of its pressure cookers. The Complaint was filed on behalf of Ms. Latoya Kaigler, a resident of Louisiana.

Ms. Kaigler’s pressure cooker exploded while under pressure on March 22, 2019. As a result of the explosion, Ms. Kaigler sustained severe thermal burns to her body. According to the Complaint, the Instant Pot is marketed as having “safety mechanisms” which are supposed to prevent the unit from both building pressure if the lid is not closed properly, as well as the lid from being removed until all the pressure is released. However, Ms. Kaigler alleges that the Instant Pot pressure cookers contain defects which allow unsuspecting consumers to remove the lid while the cooker is still under pressure causing the scalding hot contents to be projected from the unit.
