October 6, 2021 — A woman from Albuquerque, New Mexico, who was burned by a Maxi-Matic Pressure Cooker has filed a lawsuit against the manufacturer.
The lawsuit was filed by Crystal M., a woman who allegedly suffered “serious and substantial burn injuries” on October 6, 2019 when she opened the lid on her pressure cooker and hot food exploded out.
She blames her injuries on the failure of the pressure cooker’s supposed “safety features,” which did not keep her safe as advertised.
She specifically cites the Owner’s Manual, which claimed that the lid was designed with safety features that would prevent a consumer from opening it until all of the pressure had been released.
Instead, she claims that she was able to easily open the lid on the pressure cooker with normal force when there was still a dangerous amount of pressure in the pot. Doing so caused “its scalding hot contents to be forcefully ejected from the pressure cooker.”
The Pressure Cooker Lawsuit was filed on September 21, 2021 against Pick Five Imports Inc. (d/b/a Maxi-Matic U.S.A. Inc) in the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California — Case Number 2:21-CV-07550.
