How Do Pressure Cookers Explode?

Pressure cookers themselves don’t explode and typically aren’t harmful products. In pressure cooker explosion lawsuits, the term “explosion” refers to the scalding foods or liquids ejected from defective pressure cookers that burn or injure nearby people. In some cases, pressure has caused lids to explode off cookers and hit people.

Normally, safety mechanisms are supposed to prevent the lid from detaching while contents are under pressure. Pressure cooker explosion lawsuits claim that defects in safety mechanisms may allow the lid to open or detach while the food or liquid inside is still pressurized.

For example, Crock-Pot recalled about 914,000 pressure cookers in November 2020 for potential burn risk because the cooker could pressurize while the lid wasn’t fully locked. The lid could suddenly detach and put people at risk of burns from scalding liquids or foods “ejected” from the product, according to the Consumer Product Safety Commission.

Potentially Defective Pressure Cooker Safety Features

  • Silicone rings or gaskets – Seals around the lip of the pot are supposed to keep steam and pressure from escaping. Faulty gaskets or seals may allow the lid to open despite pressure build up.
  • Safe-lock lids – Lids that are supposed to prevent pressure from building when not properly sealed and prevent the lids from opening if pressure hasn’t been released.
  • Sensors – Sensors keep the pressure and heat in a safe range. They usually warn people when it is too high or the cooker becomes too hot.
  • Pressure valves – More than one valve traps and allows steam and pressure to escape safely. Faulty valves may lead to an unsafe build in pressure.

What to do if You’ve Suffered a Pressure Cooker Burn Injury

Steam burns can cause blisters and pain. When you inhale steam, it can cause serious breathing problems. Steam burns can be first, second, or third-degree. If you or someone else is burned by steam, remove the heat source and keep the injured area under cool, running water for at least 20 minutes.
