I bought this pressure cooker within the last year, but only began using it recently, and I have been using it a lot. About 30 minutes ago, I was making some turkey stock. My stock had been under pressure for about 40 minutes when I heard an awful shrieking sound and ran downstairsto find stock all over the kitchen and a missing pressure indicator mechanism. Looks like it literally blew out. Had any of us been in the kitchen, we would have been scalded. Also, i guess this could have caused a fire under some circumstances. At any rate, it's unacceptable.
