Awards & recognition

Instant Pot, manufactured by Instant Brands, has gained significant popularity in recent years due to its convenience and versatility as an instant pot pressure cooker. However, its reputation has been marred by allegations of defective and negligently designed products, resulting in serious injuries from pressure cooker explosions. These claims challenge Instant Pot’s claim of having 10 safety features in their products.

If you or a loved one has suffered from pressure cooker injuries, the dedicated team at Schmidt & Clark, LLP, is prepared to provide you with assistance. As a nationally recognized law firm with experience representing clients victimized by pressure cooker explosions, our primary goal is to secure the justice and rightful compensation you deserve.

Alabama Pressure Cooker Injury Lawsuits

Alabama’s pressure cooker lawsuits accuse Instant Brands, the Instant Pot manufacturer, of neglecting to incorporate safer features that could have thwarted explosions.

Johnson Becker PLLC has filed a lawsuit on behalf of Delia Ann McGee and Jeffrey Frank Lewis and against Instant Brands, alleging that the company’s pressure cookers were defectively and negligently designed and manufactured.

Other complaints have been filed against the manufacturer Instant Brands on behalf of Angie Easley from Demopolis, Alabama. It is alleged that Ms. Easley suffered burns during the regular use of her Instant Pot pressure cooker.

The pressure cooker explosion occurred when the lid of Ms. Easley’s Instant Pot unexpectedly opened while the contents were pressurized, contradicting Instant Pot’s assertion that its lid would “automatically lock to prevent opening the cooker” while it’s pressurized.

Plaintiffs in these Instant Pot lawsuit cases report Instant Pot pressure cooker safety mechanisms failing, leading to severe burns and injuries.

These cases highlight the potential risks and safety concerns associated with using pressure cookers, particularly those manufactured by Instant Brands Inc., and effectively disprove Instant Pot’s claim of being a safe and reliable appliance.

Which Pressure Cooker Brands Are Named in The Lawsuits?

Pressure cooker brands that are named in the lawsuits are the manufacturer Instant Brands, Belle, Breville, and Tristar Products Inc.

Instant Pot lawsuits have been filed in Alabama, alleging dangerous defects in the lids of Instant Pot pressure cookers, leading to new instant pot lawsuits being filed.

Other pressure cooker brands, such as Crock-Pot Express and Tristar’s Power Pressure Cooker XL, have also faced lawsuits due to injuries caused by their products.

Plaintiff Claims in Pressure Cooker Injury Lawsuit

Plaintiffs in pressure cooker injury lawsuits frequently report enduring severe burns from scalding liquid or steam, sustaining permanent injuries, and encountering faulty cooker components. In the Alabama pressure cooker lawsuits, plaintiffs allege that the Instant Pot’s safety mechanisms did not function properly, resulting in severe injuries.

Moreover, plaintiffs argue that the cookers pose an unreasonable danger as the lid can be opened with regular force, even while the unit remains pressurized. These claims challenge the reliability of Instant Pot’s advertised safety features and raise concerns about the real safety of pressure cookers in general.

“Defective designs related to these safety mechanisms have led many Instant Pot lids to malfunction and eject their boiling hot contents causing serious injuries.”- Ron Miller, Personal Injury Lawyer at Miller & Zois
