What is QVC Essential’s Pressure Cooker?

The QVC Essential Pressure Cooker is a sealed pot with a valve that controls the steam pressure inside. As the pot heats up, the liquid inside forms steam, which raises the pressure in the pot. This high-pressure steam raises the boiling point of the water in the pot, and raises the pressure, forcing liquid into the food. This helps it cook faster and also helps certain foods, like tough meat, get tender very quickly.

QVC Electric Pressure Cooker Lawsuit Filed in Illinois

A woman who was burned by an Instant Brands Cook’s Essentials Pressure Cooker has filed a lawsuit against QVC and IC Marks Inc. in the Northern District of Illinois.

The complaint was filed by Plaintiff Theresa Ann S., a woman who purchased her Instant Pot Cook’s Essentials 6-Quart Electric Pressure Cooker (Model Number CEPC6005) from the QVC Home Shopping TV Channel.

Unfortunately, she was severely burned when the pressure cooker exploded in July 2019, according to the lawsuit. Plaintiff claims her injuries occurred due to the “pressure cooker’s lid suddenly and unexpectedly exploding off the pressure cooker’s pot.”

Additionally, Theresa was able to easily twist open the lid with normal force when the pressure cooker was still pressurized. The explosion caused its “scalding-hot contents to be forcefully ejected from the pressure cooker and onto the Plaintiff,” according to the complaint.

The Pressure Cooker Lawsuit was filed on June 29, 2022 against IC Marks Inc. and QVC Inc. (d/b/a Cook’s Essentials) in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Illinois (Eastern Division) — Case Number 1-21-CV-03469.
