Tristar Pressure Cooker Defect Investigation by KGG

Kantrowitz, Goldhamer & Graifman, P.C., together with its co-counsel, are investigating a potential consumer class action against Tristar Products, Inc. (“Tristar”) alleging defects in a pressure cookers designed, manufactured, marketed, and sold online or through third-party retailers by Tristar.

This defect pertains to the Power Pressure Cooker XL (“Pressure Cooker”), model Number PPC-770. Tristar inaccurately advertises that the Pressure Cooker has a “built-in safety feature” which is designed to prevent the lid from opening until the pressure is released from the appliance. This model Pressure Cooker inaccurately indicates that the built-up pressure in the appliance has been released leading the consumer to believe that it is safe to open the lid when in fact, it is not. Despite the alleged “safety feature,” a defective gasket actually allows the lid to be opened when the built up pressure is still contained within the appliance causing the scalding hot contents to rupture and explode when the lid is opened by the consumer causing painful injury.
