The submitter is reporting the unit for posing a burn hazard.

She said she used the potato feature on the unit to cook some potatoes and the unit finished cooking within about 8 minutes. She then pressed the “Stop” button and released the steam. When she unlocked the lid the lid immediately popped off and the contents went flying, causing her burn injuries. She has first and second degree burns on her right forearm, chest and abdominal area. She visited the ER at Advocate Lutheran General Hospital (1775 Dempster Street, Park Ridge, IL 60068). She believes the unit failed and the lid is defective.

She has used the unit a few times since January 2019 and she has also used the potato feature without an incident.

She called the firm (877-689-2383) but she was never transferred to a Representative. She plans to contact them again.
