Do you own a pressure cooker or steam cooker made by CrockPot, NuWave, Manttra, Double Insight or one of the other dozens of pressure cooker manufacturers? Are you aware of the fact that most of these companies have recalled their products due to the risk of an explosion that can end in serious and disfiguring injuries? These wildly popular appliances have been used in restaurants for decades. In the last 15 or so years they have been modified for in home use. They allow you to cook relatively healthy meals in much less time than an oven or stove. Millions have been sold in the United States and Canada and they are prone to exploding as the safety latches are not strong enough to maintain the integrity of the pot and or lid. As the pressure mounts, which creates steam in excess of 200 degrees Fahrenheit, the contraption blows up just like a bomb. In addition to destroying your kitchen it also inflicts severe burns, shrapnel injuries, skin injuries as well as injuries to the eyes, face and head. These injuries are especially bad when suffered by the elderly due to their thin skin and weakened bones. Children are also very vulnerable to physical injury as well as emotional and psychological injuries due to the higher risk of scarring and disfigurement.
