Pressure Cooker Explosion Lawsuits
Injured in a Pressure Cooker Explosion? We’ve Got Your Back.
Pressure cookers are known for their convenience factor, as they allow people and families to get dinner on the table quickly. Unfortunately, their design is inherently dangerous; they are only able to cook food so quickly by building up an enormous amount of steam. When pressure cookers are defective, they may explode due to this buildup of pressure and cause serious burns or other injuries.
If you have been injured in a pressure cooker explosion, you likely have grounds to file a lawsuit against the manufacturer and/or retailer. Our Los Angeles trial attorneys at Shoop | A Professional Law Corporation are currently investigating cases involving defective pressure cookers. Backed by over 35 years of experience and a proven track record, we are prepared to fight to recover compensation for the full amount of your damages.

Faulty Design & Manufacturing Defects in Pressure Cookers
The potential for a modern pressure cooker to explode is often dismissed as a myth; however, defective pressure cooker explosions are a very real danger. Just because today’s pressure cookers have more safety features than those from the 1950s, such as multiple safety valves, that does not mean they carry no risk of injury at all.
Modern pressure cookers have exploded and been the subject of federal recalls due to various defects, including but not limited to:
- Faulty seals and gaskets
- Defective steam venting
- Defective safety valves and pins
- Failure to warn consumers of potential safety hazards
If any of the above defects are present, pressure can easily build up in the cooker and cause it to explode. Typically, this results in burns to the face and body so serious they require intensive medical care.
Recalled Pressure Cookers
The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) has recalled various pressure cookers in recent years:
- Instant Pot
- Rena Ware
It is likely that other manufacturers may have pushed defective pressure cookers to market, as well. Sadly, there have also been cases in which retailers have sold recalled pressure cookers to consumers, completely disregarding their safety for profit.
