Tower claimed in February 2019 that it wasn’t aware of any recall, and that the firm has in its possession all the EU test certifications indicating that its 6-litre One Touch Stainless Steel pressure cooker is safe to use as directed. The company claims there have been no complaints or injuries associated with the pressure cooker in Europe.

What’s the problem?
The alert states that the stove-top pressure cooker, on sale at Argos and Robert Dyas, doesn’t comply with the requirements of the Pressure Equipment Directive, due to ‘inadequate’ safety devices. If the lid is opened abruptly, the gasket may eject from the lid, which would cause hot liquid to shoot out of the pressure cooker. It’s also possible for the upper part of the rod to become partially detached. This would stop the safe-opening system from working properly.
Which Pressure Cookers are Affected by the Recall?
The recalled pressure cookers have the model number T90103, which can be found on the base of the pressure cooker, and barcode 5055195872791 on the box. If you have one of the cookers, you should stop using it immediately, regardless of whether you’ve had any problems with it in in the past, and contact the manufacturer for more information.`
