Product Liability lawyer and consumer safety attorney reviewing burn injury cases and NuWave pressure cooker accident lawsuits for injured plaintiffs nationwide
Due to hazardous design and manufacturing defects, many pressure cookers on the market put consumers at severe burn injury risk. Reports from the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) have indicated that NuWave pressure cooker models may be defective and lead to serious burn injury.
In 2018, the CPSC received a report that stated a NuWave 6Q Electric Pressure Cooker exploded in the home of a plaintiff. The consumer said the lid blew off the pressure cooker and hot contents were thrown throughout the kitchen. Fortunately, nobody was injured in the incident but other consumers with NuWave pressure cooker models may not have been so lucky.
When any pressure cooker user is burned by a defective pressure cooker, they should seek medical attention and contact a consumer safety lawyer. Injured plaintiffs may be entitled to compensation. Pressure cooker defects may include faulty seals, gaskets, safety valves and poor construction materials.

NuWave Pressure Cooker Accidents
Defective design and manufacturing defects make many pressure cookers unsafe for use, possibly including several NuWave pressure cooker models. Many injury reports sound similar with boiling hot contents blown from the kitchen appliance, causing burn injury. Recalled pressure cookers have become commonplace and many defective models have been removed from the market. Insufficient warnings and poor instruction manuals have contributed to serious injuries.
Pressure cooker defects violate safety standards of the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) with poor design, faulty sealing gaskets, improper assembly and unsafe materials. Consumers who have suffered burn injuries as a result of defective pressure cookers may file lawsuits against the manufacturers.
