Bella Pressure Cooker Recall
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.
If you’ve been injured by a Bella Housewares product, we’re uniquely capable of helping you hold the organization responsible for the injustice accountable for their wrongdoing. Contact us today to get started.

If any of the previously mentioned products injured you, our attorneys are here to help. Some of those who were harmed by these products sustained significant injuries, requiring them to seek medical attention for the damage. Unfortunately, this treatment is often costly, even for minor injuries, which can result in a significant financial burden if you aren’t prepared or independently wealthy. By teaming up with an attorney, you can fight back against the manufacturer who caused you harm and potentially recover the compensation you need to pay off the expenses from your injury, plus punitive damages for their negligence.
Why Are Pressure Cookers Dangerous?
Pressure cookers work by trapping steam inside the device’s airtight chamber until pressure drives up the temperature and cooks the food within. The airtight seal allows the food to cook quicker than a conventional appliance, and the trapped water vapor pulls flavors from the food in a manner most other kitchen equipment can not. However, the design of these products is often their downfall, as the intense pressurization can potentially cause the unit itself to explode or overheat. If the device is made with lesser materials that can’t contain the pressure, it can lead to a variety of different issues, all of which are dangerous to anyone standing nearby.
Bella Houseworks pressure cookers contain safety features that prevent the lid from opening during use, but as many users now know, these features don’t always work as intended. According to reports, many of their customers have seen steam escaping from the device during use, showing that the lid isn’t as secure as the manufacturer thought. Additionally, other users have reported that the device doesn’t depressurize as advertised. One individual left a review saying that the hot contents exploded from the unit when he opened the lid, which was after he opened the lid slightly to release some of the pressure. All of the cases of injury were the result of a consumer using the product exactly how it’s designed to be used, making the negligence of the manufacturer nothing short of unacceptable.
How Can a Lawsuit Help?
Product liability laws exist to protect consumers from dangerous or defective products on the market and allow the victims to seek legal action against the responsible organization. Although a lawsuit can’t reverse the damage, it can offer you the financial ability to escape from the consequences of your injury. By filing a lawsuit, you could potentially recover damages for:
- Medical expense
- Pain and suffering
- Scarring or permanent disfigurement
- Lost wages
- Out-of-pocket expenses
The specific amount you’ll recover will depend on the circumstances surrounding your case, but the average victim can expect to recover the majority of the damages they sustained as a result of their injury. Fortunately for you, our attorneys are well-versed in all aspects of product liability law. If you were injured by a Bella Housewares product or any other pressure cooker, we’re uniquely capable of helping you find success in your legal challenge, regardless of the size or influence of the at-fault organization.
Contact Morgan & Morgan’s Product Liability Team
In the most difficult moments of your life, Morgan & Morgan has your back. Bella Housewares’s negligence isn’t your burden to bear, as they’re legally responsible for the harm their products cause once they’re sold on the open market. Anyone who sustained an injury from one of their products while using it for its intended purpose could be eligible to file a lawsuit against the manufacturer and seek damages, but this is often a complicated task for someone with no prior experience. Between the complex paperwork and the need to prove you weren’t acting negligently at the time of your injury, it’s difficult to advocate for the true value of your damages with so many other issues on your plate. However, by teaming up with one of our product liability lawyers, you can file your lawsuit with ease, all the while keeping your compensation protected against a third party’s attempt to diminish or deny what you deserve.
If you were harmed by a Bella Houseworks pressure cooker product, or any other pressure cooker appliance, our attorneys are ready to help you advocate for your situation and reach the most successful outcome. Contact us today for more information on how to get started.
