September 13, 2022 — A woman who was burned by a Cosori Pressure Cooker has filed a lawsuit against the manufacturer.
The lawsuit accuses Arovast Corporation (doing business as Cosori Corporation) of selling defective pressure cookers.
The pressure cookers are allegedly defective and unreasonably dangerous for their intended use “because the lid can be rotated and opened while the unit remains pressurized,” according to the lawsuit.
The plaintiff, Alyssa M., is a woman from Connecticut who claims that she was burned in August 2019 by an explosion of hot food, liquid, and steam when she opened the lid on her Cosori Pressure Cooker.
The incident allegedly involved a Cosori Premium 6-Quart Pressure Cooker (Model #CP016-PC).
She accuses the manufacturers of misleading consumers about the safety of the pressure cooker by claiming that the “lid will stay locked until the float valve drops down.”
In reality, the lawsuit claims that consumers can easily rotate and open the lid when there is still a dangerous amount of pressure inside the pot.
The Cosori Pressure Cooker Lawsuit was filed on August 2, 2022 in the U.S. District Court for the District of Connecticut — Case Number 3:22-cv-00980-SALM.
