Ambiano Pressure Cooker Explosion
Modern electric pressure cookers were meant to be an easier and far safer alternative to their stovetop predecessors. Basic defects to the operation of these pressure cookers, sometimes branded as “multicookers,” have turned some models from a quick-cooking marvel to a countertop liability.
Typically, pressure cooker burn injuries occur when a lid can be twisted off despite the contents still being under pressure, sending the scalding hot contents erupting in all directions. In rare instances, defectively designed lids explode off without the user even touching the lid.
These incidents occur despite manufacturer assurances of safety features meant to protect the user and their family from burn hazards.
In a 2017 YouTube video advertising the Ambiano pressure cooker, an appliance sold exclusively at Aldi, the grocery store chain highlights a series of “safety devices.” These include a safety valve which “engages so the lid cannot be opened” while the unit is building or under pressure.
“You will only be able to take off the lid after the steam inside the pot has subsided: after the safety valve has dropped down and the pin is back in its original position,” the video explains.
Ambiano Pressure Cooker Lawsuit
Despite those claims, numerous users have been burned by these Aldi pressure cookers because of lids that opened prematurely.
Ambiano pressure cookers endanger users through flawed design and manufacturing, failing to warn consumers of the danger they pose, overzealous marketing, and a failure to recall or redesign a defective and unsafe product.
One recent lawsuit alleges Aldi “defectively and negligently designed and manufactured” its Ambiano pressure cooker, which caused “serious and substantial bodily injury and damages” to a Johnson//Becker client. The cooking device “failed to properly function as to prevent the lid from being removed with normal force while the unit remained pressurized, despite the appearance that all the pressure had been released… placing the Plaintiff, her family, and similar consumers in danger while using the pressure cookers.”
Johnson//Becker attorneys have extensive experience handling pressure cooker cases, including against Ambiano.
