Insignia pressure cooker investigation

Insignia pressure cooker recall

On October 26, 2023, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission recalled nearly one million Insignia pressure cookers due to burn hazards associated with the device. They identified incorrect volume markings on the inner pot that can cause users to overfill the device and potentially be burned by dangerously pressurized hot food or liquids ejecting from it.   

One day later, Best Buy followed with an announcement that it is recalling these “Insignia” branded pressure cookers.  According to news reports, Best Buy has received 31 reports of food or liquid being expelled from the cooker under pressure, and 17 reports of burn injuries, including severe and second-degree burns. 

Identifying the affected products 

Insignia Multi-Function Pressure Cookers with model numbers: 

  • NS-MC60SS8 
  • NS-MC60SS9 
  • NS-MC80SS9 

And inner cooker pots, which were also sold separately as replacements, with model numbers: 

  • NS-MCRP6NS9 
  • NS-MCRP6SS9 

According to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission: “the brand name INSIGNIA appears on the front of each unit and on its permanent on-product label. The model number of the recalled pressure cookers is also printed on the permanent on-product label on the side of the cooker. The inner cooker pots are black with a non-stick coating and embossed markings indicating cup and liter measurements.”
