Cook’s Essentials Pressure Cooker Explosion
Cook’s Essentials pressure cookers are manufactured for the QVC home shopping network, where hosts spend an inordinate time raving about color options and pricing.
Occasionally, they mention why so many consumers have embraced pressure cooking in recent years.
“Pressure cooking, in the past, sometimes made us a little nervous,” one host said in a 2021 appearance. “Because we thought, ‘I don’t really understand what’s happening in there, doesn’t feel like the safest process in the world.’ That’s out the window, because this is now a very safe way to cook.”
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.
Cook’s Essentials Pressure Cooker Lawsuit
Cook’s Essentials 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.
Johnson//Becker lawyers have extensive experience handling pressure cooker cases, including against Cook’s Essentials.
One Johnson//Becker client had to postpone her wedding due to her burn injuries, and called the explosion of her Cook’s Essentials pressure cooker “the scariest thing she has been through.” Another victim had to buy a new wardrobe to hide her permanent scars.
