Have you or a loved one been injured due to an at home pressure cooker exploding while being used? These devices are touted as time saving ways to cook healthy and tasty meals in significantly less time than a conventional oven or stove. In theory they work but in real life can actually be ticking time bombs due to faulty safety features. With pressure cookers the food inside is steamed and can reach temperatures in excess of 200 degrees F. If the pressure is not released the pressure become too much and the lid flies off and the entire unit, which is made of metal and plastic, explodes complete with a blast radius if several feet. This can absolutely destroy your kitchen as well as severely injury you and your children. In the United States there are more than one dozen pressure cooker manufacturers and most have voluntarily recalled their products after people have been injured or killed by a pressure cooker explosion.
