March 15, 2022 — A lawsuit has been filed by a woman from Los Angeles who was burned by a Maxi-Matic Pressure Cooker.
The lawsuit was filed by Ms. Crystal G., a woman who claims she was burned when her pressure cooker exploded under pressure.
The incident occurred on February 22, 2020 and it specifically involved a Maxi-Matic Elite Platinum Pressure Cooker (Model Number EPC-607).
According to the complaint, Maxi-Matic advertised the “advanced technology” of its pressure cookers, and “states that they cannot be opened while in use.”
Instead, the plaintiff claims that she suffered “serious and substantial burn injuries” because she was able to easily twist open the lid when the pressure cooker was still pressurized, “allowing its scalding hot contents to be forcefully ejected from the pressure cooker” and onto her body.
She claims that the pressure cooker is defective because it does not prevent the lid from being removed with normal force when the unit is pressurized, despite the appearance that all of the pressure has been released.
The Maxi-Matic Pressure Cooker Lawsuit was filed on February 15, 2022 against Pick Five Imports Inc. (doing business at Maxi-Matic USA Inc.) in the Superior Court for the State of California for the County of Los Angeles — Case No. 22STCV05649.
