Several Complaints Of Dangerous Slow Cookers Causing Injury

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission helps oversee product safety, and allows you to search pressure cooker claims which were reported to them. Among the pressure cooker injury reports, there are certain pressure cookers which may pose a danger:

Power Pressure Cooker XL by Tristar Products – Our office has seen an increase in burn injuries and exploding Power Pressure Cooker XLs. The CPSC has also received numerous complaints, including this one ,”Went to open pressure cooker. Turned the valve to release the pressure and it did not release. Attempted to repeat this step with no change. Went to turn the lid and open the cooker. Pressure cooker contents burst and burned me.”

Maxi Matic Elite 13-Function 8qt Electronic Pressure Cooker – The CPSC received a recent report of the lid blowing off the pressure cooker. Pressure cookers should have a safety valve to prevent these types of incidents from happening. The victim reported: “The lid of the pressure cooker broke away from the body with a loud boom. The lid was thrown through the air and broke my light fixture in the dining area about 4 feet away and landed on the floor of the kitchen. Plastic from the cooker and the food were stuck in the ceiling and kitchen floor. The tops of my cabinets had food land on them. Things fell so fast and hard it ripped up pieces of the flooring.”

Philippe Richard 8-Quart Pressure Cooker, Aluminum – A consumer recently reported that after only a few uses it exploded, gasket failed. The victim says she was burned on her abdomen.

Recalled Pressure Cookers

Over the past couple of years, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission has also issued recalls on several popular pressure cookers.

These include:
Time Machine and Mini Time Machine rice and slow cookers (also spelled Tim3 Machin3) – According to the CPSC, this recall involves 3 Squares-branded Tim3 Machin3 and Mini Tim3 Machin3 rice and slow cookers with fixed power cords. The 20-cup/4-quart or 8-cup/1.7-quart programmable electric cookers are stainless steel with black molded plastic, have a control panel/keypad on the front and measure about 11 inches in diameter and12 inches tall. The 3Squares logo is printed on the front of the control panel. Model numbers starting with 3RC and ending in 3010S, 3020S, 3434, 5020 and 9010S are included in the recall. The model number is printed on a label on the side of the product. There have been reports of a cooker sparking when turned on and a cooker turning itself on. One shock injury was reported.

Breville Fast Slow Cookers – According to the CPSC, the sealing gasket can be incorrectly inserted upside down on the lid which can allow the unexpected release of built-up pressure. This poses a risk of burns to the user or consumers nearby. There have been several reports of steam or hot contents escaping from the pressure cooker, resulting in five reports of burns, including second degree burns to the hands, arms or stomach.

Instant Pot Pressure Cooker – According to the CPSC, the thermal probe in the base can conduct electricity throughout the cooker, posing a risk of electric shock. There have been reports of consumers being shocked while using the pressure cooker.

Many of these dangerous slow cookers have been sold at major retailers throughout the United States. Bed, Bath and Beyond, Kohl’s, Best Buy, Macy’s, Sur la Table and Williams Sonoma stores nationwide and online, and online at Amazon.com all sell pressure cookers.
