Insignia 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.
On the website for Best Buy, the exclusive retail outlet for Insignia pressure cookers, the item is said to have a “locking lid” that “keeps the lid locked firmly in place once enough pressure builds inside the cooker.”
In the owner’s manual for a currently available Insignia pressure cooker model, the “lid lock” is listed under “protection features,” which explains: “You cannot remove the lid until the pressure level lowers to the required level.”
Insignia Pressure Cooker Lawsuit
Despite these claims, Insignia 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 Insignia.
