  1. Back in 1967, l witnessed my Aunt get severely burned when her Pressure Cooker exploded! Yes, I’m aware of the fact that Pressure Cookers are supposed to be safer nowadays… However, I recently watched a video on YouTube about a woman who got badly burned only two years ago! It was Sunbeam “Crock-Pot Express Pressure Cooker”. Sunbeam was aware of this issue of the lids suddenly blowing off their Pressure Cookers since 2018… But, waited until November of 2020 before finally recalling them!

    I love America’s Test Kitchen but there’s no way in Hades, l would use a Pressure Cooker!
