July 7, 2021 — A pressure cooker lawsuit has been filed by a woman who was severely burned by a Cook’s Essentials Pressure Cooker she bought from QVC.
Cook’s Essentials Pressure Cookers are electric pressure cookers that are sold exclusively through the QVC Home Shopping channel.
The lawsuit was filed by Theresa S., a woman from Illinois who was injured by a Cook’s Essentials 6-Quart Electric Pressure Cooker (Model Number CEPC6005) on July 2, 2019.
Her injuries occurred due to the “pressure cooker’s lid suddenly and unexpectedly exploding off the pressure cooker’s pot,” according to the lawsuit. The explosion caused its “scalding-hot contents to be forcefully ejected from the pressure cooker and onto the Plaintiff.”
She claims that the pressure cooker is defective because the lid can be removed with normal force while the unit remains pressurized, despite the appearance that all of the pressure has been released.
She is seeking compensation for “significant and painful bodily injuries, medical expenses, wage loss, physical pain, mental anguish, and diminished enjoyment of life.”
Her Pressure Cooker Lawsuit was filed against IC Marks Inc. and QVC Inc. (doing business as Cook’s Essentials) on June 29, 2021 in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Illinois (Eastern Division) — Case Number 1-21-CV-03469.
