Nutri-Pot Pressure Cooker Lawsuit Filed by Burned Woman

Nutri-Pot Pressure Cooker Lawsuit Filed by Burned Woman

May 28, 2024 — NuWave LLC has been sued by a woman who was burned when she opened the lid on her Nutri-Pot Pressure Cooker.

The lawsuit was filed by Jaclyn R., a resident of Elkton, Maryland.

Her lawsuit alleges that in October 2021, she suffered “substantial burn injuries” when she was able to easily twist open the lid on her NuWave Nutri-Pot Pressure Cooker while it was still pressurized.

The incident involved NuWave Nutri-Pot 6-Quart Digital Pressure Cooker (Model Number 33101).

This type of pressure cooker was specifically advertised to have a “Sure-Lock® Safety System,” which the manufacturer claimed would lock the lid until it was safe to open.

Instead, when she opened the lid, the residual pressure trapped within the unit caused its “scalding hot contents to be forcefully ejected from the pressure cooker and onto Plaintiff … which resulted in significant and painful bodily injuries.”

Her pressure cooker lawsuit was filed against NuWave LLC on October 26, 2023 in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Illinois (Eastern Division) — Case Number 1:23-cv-15348.
