Breville Pressure Cooker Recall

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) in December 2015 issued a recall notice [1] for more than 35,600 Breville Pressure Cookers over a risk of a Breville slow cooker explosion due to a potentially defective pressure release valve.

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 and 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,, and

Hot Contents from Exploding Pressure Cookers Cause Horrific Injuries

In September 2016, a woman filed a lawsuit in the Middle District of Tennessee after suffering horrific burns over 10% of her body when her Breville Pressure Cooker Model 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 number BPR200) and discovered that it had been recalled in 2015. She never knew that Breville recalled the fast and slow pressure cookers, although she registered her address when she bought the pressure cooker in 2013.

Breville Pressure Cooker Lawsuit Filed in Georgia

In December 2020, a lawsuit was filed against Breville USA Inc. 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.
