September 4, 2020 — Another lawsuit has been filed against Tristar Products by a person who was burned by a pressure cooker that exploded.
The lawsuit was filed by Vanna R., a woman from Colorado who claims her Tristar Power Pressure Cooker XL exploded on September 25, 2018, resulting in severe burn injuries.
She alleges that the Power Pressure Cooker XL is defective because a person can easily twist open the lid when the pot is still pressurized, which causes the boiling-hot food, liquid, and steam to explode out.
She accuses Tristar of falsely advertising the defective “lid safety device” on the Power Pressure Cooker XL.
This safety feature was advertised to prevent the unit from building up pressure if the lid was not sealed properly. It was also supposed to prevent the lid from opening until all of the pressure is safely released.
The lawsuit (PDF) was filed on September 3, 2020 in the Circuit Court of the First Judicial District (Walton County, Florida) — Case No. 112826806.
