The Power Pressure Cooker XL is sold online and in major retail stores, including Bed, Bath & Beyond, Walmart, Kohls, JC Penney, and more. According to its website, "
Power Pressure Cooker XL prepares family favorite recipes up to 70% faster than other conventional ways of cooking. Its Flavor Infusion technology guarantees that the food will not only be done fast but it will be delicious."Pressure Cooker Lawyers

It is supposed to have "built in safety features", though its website fails to disclose what those safety features actually are. Each website which sells this product has a different description. Kohls, for example, even says there is a "Safe-lock lid and steam release valve ensure safe use." This safety feature is not described on all sites. 

Possible Power Pressure Cooker XL May Explode

It has been alleged that a faulty part in the Power Pressure Cooker XL may cause pressure to build up without a means of release, thereby causing the contents to explode out when the pressure cooker is opened. One victim described the defect as a loose valve that gets blocked and cannot release the steam.

There have been numerous complaints with this product already. Among those listed online include:
  • "this was my first pressure cooker and I really needed to rely on instructions but the booklet it came with really was useless." jacobalex 
    • Inadequate instructions without sufficient safety instructions may increase potential liability for any injury caused by the Power Pressure Cooker XL
  • "After cooking, the release button wouldn't release. I had to get a screwdriver and manually depress the valve to get the pressure out so I could open it." old sandals
    • A faulty release button could cause contents to explode onto the user when the cooker is opened. Scalding hot soup or product could be extremely dangerous if it shoots out of the cooker.
  • "Used the pressure cooker 1 time with success. After that, never could get the top to seal correctly. Almost burnt myself went the lid popped off on its own" budro2u
    • A faulty seal could cause contents to shoot out during the cooking process, or afterwards, and could be very dangerous. 
  • "no way to stop ,except pull the plug."
    • Without a way to stop the cooker, pressure could build up and the food could get burning hot when unintended by the user.
  • "The first one after the 2nd use had the white lettering on the release valve completely disappear, I did an even exchange. The 2nd one after 2 uses while making pasta over heated and never shut off when timer ended so it burned terribly to the bottom, I did an even exchange. The third one never sealed correctly from the first use. Steam would escape from the handle."
    • This consumer had several safety issues with 3 different pressure cookers she purchased.
Some of the most common safety issues with the Power Pressure Cooker XL alleged are:
  1. Poor instructions
  2. Lettering on the release valve disappeared, making it impossible for the consumer to use it as designed
  3. Cooker never shut off even after the timer ended
  4. Lid does not seal properly, allowing steam to escape from unintended places
  5. No manual safety shut off
  6. Lid may pop off during use
  7. Release valve may get stuck and cause the cooker to seal shut
  8. Release valve may move out of place

Common Pressure Cooker Injury and Damage Claims may include:

Burns - If a pressure cooker explodes, scalding hot food could cause major burns, blistering skin, melted skin, and scars. These burn injuries could require skin grafting, antibiotics, and could even lead to infection.  

Scars and Skin Discoloration - Severe burns could cause the victim's skin to become permanently discolored, or even leave scars. These injuries could require revision surgery or future medical care.

Property DamageWhen contents from a pressure cooker explode, it could cause property damage to contents. Soup, for example, could shoot out from the pressure cooker and coat the ceiling, walls and other furniture and valuables.
