Pressure cookers are easy to operate, offer a wide variety of cooking options to the user, and can create restaurant-quality meals that can spice up the family dinner table, but these devices are often much more dangerous than people realize. In some cases, these kitchen appliances can overheat and explode under the right conditions or with a defect, often leaving the user and anyone else in the surrounding area with a serious, painful injury. Many of these products are the subject of recalls that pull them from store shelves in the name of safety for consumers, but others fly under the radar and continue to cause injury to the innocent people that use them. Bella Housewares, a popular brand of pressure cooker products, finds itself amongst these dangerous products after numerous reports of their products opening during use and burning the user with the hot contents inside the device.
Bella Housewares pressure cooker products are marketed as safe to use for their intended purpose, with the inclusion of safety features that prevent the lid from opening while the unit is pressurized. However, many users have found that they aren’t as safe as the manufacturer had intended, as the safety features to keep the cover closed during use are faulty and rarely do their job. According to customer reviews, the lid will refuse to stay closed and create an airtight seal, or the unit becomes too pressurized during use and will explode upon opening, causing the hot contents within to explode outward.
All manufacturers are responsible for the products they sell in the open market, and Bella Housewares is no exception. Their products have caused real-time consequences for the consumers who trusted their organization, and now these individuals must endure living with a painful injury. If Bella Housewares had acted rationally during the manufacturing process, we might not be in this situation, but they chose to act negligently and expose their customers to a product that could cause them harm. Our firm stands with the victims of this situation and all others who have been injured by products that are supposed to be safe for their intended purpose.
