  • The Plaintiffs in the Litigation contend that the Pressure Cookers may have a lower value than the amount that Class Members paid because they are allegedly defective.
  • The Plaintiffs describe the defects to include, but not be limited to, the following:     

a) The Pressure Cooker may suddenly release steam while being opened.

b) The Pressure Cooker lid may be able to be removed while under pressure, contrary to the representation in the Owner's Manual that the lid 'should only come off if there [is] no pressure inside', or phrased another way, the Owner's Manual inaccurately states that the cover (lid) cannot be removed when the unit contains any amount of pressure.

c) The pressure relief valve may inaccurately indicate that built-up pressure has escaped the Pressure Cooker.

d) There is a faulty gasket that may allow the lid to open despite the presence of significant built-up pressure.

e) The Pressure Cooker does not properly seal.

f) The Pressure Cooker can develop pressure when the lid is only partially, or is improperly, closed, contrary to the representation in the Owner's Manual that the lid safety device prevents pressure buildup if the lid is not closed properly.
