April 27, 2023 — Instant Brands Inc. has been hit by yet another lawsuit involving an angry consumer who was burned by an Instant Pot.
The plaintiff, Khadija K., claims that he was severely burned by a defective Instant Pot 6-Quart DUO 60 Electric Pressure Cooker (specifically the Mickey Mouse Red model) in April 2021.
According to the lawsuit the incident occurred because the safety features failed to lock the lid and prevent him from opening the Instant Pot while there was still a dangerous amount of pressure inside.
For example, the manufacturer claims that Instant Pot Pressure Cookers include a “safety feature to disable the cooker” and display a light that “flashes ‘Lid’ if the lid is not positioned correctly.”
In his lawsuit, the plaintiff claims that “Defendant’s pressure cookers possess defects that make them unreasonably dangerous for their intended use by consumers because the lid can be rotated and opened while the unit remains pressurized.”
He accuses Instant Brands of negligence for selling an “unreasonably dangerous” product that poses an “unreasonable increased risk of injury, including, but not limited to, first-, second-, and third-degree burns.”
The Instant Pot Lawsuit was filed on March 28, 2023 in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Illinois (Eastern Division) — Case Number 1:23-cv-01957.
