My Fagor Rapid Express Pressure Cooker exploded on the stove today. It sounded like a loud gunshot going off and went shooting across the kitchen at me while I was sitting at the table. Luckily neither I, nor my small dogs who were in the kitchen with me, were not seriously injured however I did get burns on my foot and it knocked me off my kitchen chair- so I have a big bruise on my right knee from hitting the floor so suddenly. It also left scrape marks on the ceramic tile that I'm not able to get off. I was cooking chuck roast and it sprayed/splattered all over my kitchen and I was able to clean it off everything except the newly painted white ceiling, where the splatter left quite a few stains, and the scrapes on the ceramic tile. I'm so disappointed, and extremely freaked out that this type of incident can happen, and I wasn't warned about it!
