More people are getting injured by using Instant Pot type devices; how can you best protect yourself? Here's Colorado attorney George McLaughlin’s advice in this AskTheLawyers™ Quick Question.

George McLaughlin:

Never assume that if you're using a pressure cooker, that the indications that it is not under pressure are accurate. What if there's a mistake? You should wait a significant time to let the pressure dissipate. You should be sure it is indicating that there is no pressure, and if it has a pressure relief valve, and they all do, before you open it check that pressure relief valve and see that it is open and be sure that there's nothing coming out, no steam, no sound, no hissing.
