Consumers in multiple states have reported suffering second- and third-degree burns after explosions of Power Pressure Cooker XL appliances in which the top of the unit flies off during operation, spewing steam and hot liquid on persons standing near the appliance.   The Power Pressure Cooker XL is manufactured and marketed by New Jersey-based TriStar Products, Inc., with various models of the pressure cooker sold to consumers at retail giants including Target, Wal-Mart and Bed Bath & Beyond.   In promotional videos, TriStar touts that the lid of the “as seen on TV” pressure cooker cannot be removed until internal pressure has dissipated and it is safe for removal, but for consumers in states including Georgia, Florida, Texas and Pennsylvania, the reality has been far different.  For example, a Georgia woman represented by the Conley Griggs Partin LLP law firm in Atlanta was making a chicken stock for Easter dinner in March 2016 when, without any warning or input from her, the top blew off her Power Pressure Cooker XL, resulting in severe burns to her torso.  The TriStar Power Pressure Cooker explosions have also been linked to burn injuries to children who were unwittingly in the vicinity of an exploding pressure cooker, including a nine-month-old baby in Texas and a 14-year old boy in Georgia.  If you or a loved one have been injured by an exploding Power Pressure Cooker XL, contact us to learn more about how to protect your legal interests.
