June 22, 2022 — Lawyers have represented more than 500 people who claim they were burned by Instant Pot Pressure Cookers.
These Instant Pot lawsuits allege that the product has a “dangerously defective” lid that fails to lock.
The most recent lawsuit was filed by Carolyn A., a woman from Florida who claims that she suffered “serious and substantial burn injuries” when she opened the lid on her Instant Pot Nova Plus in July 2019.
According to her lawsuit, the Owner’s Manual for the Instant Pot claims: “As a safety feature, until the float valve drops down the lid is locked and cannot be opened.”
However, she claims that she was burned by an explosion of hot steam and food when she easily opened the lid.
Instant Brands Inc., the manufacturer of the Instant Pot, is accused of selling a defective pressure cooker, failing to issue a recall, and failing to warn consumers about the risk of severe burn injuries.
Her Instant Pot Lawsuit (PDF) was filed against on June 20, 2022 in the U.S. District Court for the Middle District of Florida — Case Number 8:22-cv-01390.
