This case involves a 26-year-old plaintiff who was injured during a pressure cooker explosion. The device in question was a 6-qt pressure, slow, and rice cooker. Less than one month after purchasing the pressure cooker, the plaintiff was using the device in the kitchen of her home. She proceeded to twist the valve to release the vapor. The device made loud sounds and water abruptly exploded onto the plaintiff’s neck, chest, and hands. The plaintiff suffered severe second-degree burns from the incident. She was taken to a medical center where she remained hospitalized for over a week. The plaintiff was left with scarring and disfigurement from the burns. An expert in pressure cooker engineering was sought to conduct a failure analysis of the device in question to determine whether the product was defective.
