Pressure Cooker Defect Canadian Class Action


CONSUMER LAW GROUP is investigating a potential Canadian class action lawsuit against Instant Brands Inc. in relation to their Instant Pot® electric pressure cooker products known as:

a. IP DUO Series
b. Lux Series
c. Viva Series
d. Duo Plus Series
e. Duo Evo Plus
f. Duo Crisp
g. Duo Nova
h. Nova Plus
i. Smart WiFi
k. Ultra Series
l. Max Series

A class action lawsuit is already underway in the United States that alleges that these products have a dangerously defective lid-locking assembly, allowing the lid to open while the contents of the cooker are under pressure during normal and expected use, so that its super-heated contents erupt from the cooker, scalding consumers with second and third-degree burns.

Further, it is alleged that the intended safety feature of the Instant Pot® – that the lid cannot be opened with less than 100 pounds of rotational force, applied gradually, while contents of the pot are under pressure – was not adequately tested in design and development of the products to ensure that it was reasonably safe under the conditions of reasonably expected use.

It is also alleged that Instant Brands has been aware of this dangerous defect since at least the year 2016, if not earlier, but concealed it, failed to disclose it, and continued to sell the Instant Pot® electric pressure cooker products with the defective lid-locking assembly. On or around October 26, 2017, Instant Brands designed a new construction of locking pin assembly to remedy this issue.
