Breville Fast Slow Cooker Recall
The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) in December 2015 issued a recall notice  for more than 35,600 Breville Pressure Cookers over a risk of a Breville fast slow cooker explosion.
Breville received at least 5 reports of people who suffered burns — including 2nd-degree burns to the hands, arms, or stomach — as well as 5 reports of steam or scalding hot contents exploding out of the Fast Slow Cooker due to built-up pressure.
The problem with the recalled pressure cookers appears to be a faulty lid sealing gasket:
“The sealing gasket can be incorrectly inserted upside down on the locked on lid which can allow the unexpected release of built-up air from the cookers. This poses a risk of hot food exploding on the user or consumers nearby.”
The recall affects fast slow cookers with model number BPR600XL and batch numbers between 1235 and 1529. Breville Fast Slow Cookers were sold from September 2012 through October 2015 for around $180 at stores like Bed Bath & Beyond, Best Buy, Macy’s, Sur la Table, Williams Sonoma, Amazon.com and BrevilleUSA.com.

Hot Contents from Exploding Pressure Cookers Cause Horrific Injuries
In September 2016, a woman suffered horrific burns over 10% of her body when her Breville Fast Slow Cooker exploded. Boiling-hot water and sticky foods were ejected, causing 2nd-degree burns and blisters all over her arms, neck, and shoulder.
Despite the pain, she drove herself to Cairns Base Hospital. She was hospitalized for 5 days, as doctors feared she would develop infections from the burns.
After going home, the woman investigated the Breville Fast Slow Cooker (batch numbers BPR200) and discovered that it had been recalled in 2015. She never knew that Breville recalled the fast slow pressure cookers, although she registered her address when she bought the pressure cooker in 2013.
Breville Fast Slow Cooker Lawsuit Filed in Georgia
In December 2020, a lawsuit was filed by Todd J., a man from Georgia who was seriously burned by a Breville Fast-Slow Pressure Cooker in January 2018.
He claims he was able to open the lid when the pressure cooker was still under pressure, which caused its “scalding hot contents to be forcefully ejected.” He accuses Breville of selling pressure cookers with defective safety features that fail to lock the lid until all of the pressure is released.
The lawsuit was filed on December 30, 2020 in the U.S. District Court for the Middle District of Georgia (Columbus Division) — Case Number 4:20-cv-00313-CDL.
