The Ammons Law Firm files suit against Instant Brands after pressure cooker explodes, burns Oklahoma woman

TULSA, Okla. — The Ammons Law Firm has filed a lawsuit against Instant Brands on behalf of an Oklahoma woman who was scalded and scarred by extremely hot contents of an Instant Pot pressure cooker as she opened the device in her home.Filed in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Oklahoma, the products liability suit alleges that the corporation negligently and defectively designed the pressure cooker, which led to the catastrophic pressure sealing and containment failure that injured the woman.The Instant Pot generates extreme heat and steam during routine operation. Despite purported built-in safety features, the suit alleges the built-up pressure and steam inside the defective device caused its scalding hot contents to erupt out of the appliance.The suit further alleges that the pressure cooker’s design does not include adequate safety features and was falsely warranted, marketed, advertised, and sold as “convenient, dependable and safe” by the Canadian corporation.

“Instant Brands knew or should have been aware of these defects but nevertheless prioritized profit over safety by selling these devices and failing to warn customers of the dangerous risks their defects pose,” said Rob Ammons, founder and managing partner of The Ammons Law Firm.
