Dangerous Kitchen Appliances
Kitchen appliances can be extremely powerful. Many common appliances consume large amounts of electricity, while others contain powerful motors and sharp blades. If these devices are not manufactured according to stringent safety standards, they may put the wellbeing of their owners at risk. People who have been seriously injured by dangerous kitchen appliances have the right to seek compensation for their medical bills and losses.
Even something as seemingly harmless as a toaster draws significant amounts of electricity and can cause electrocution. Besides just toasters, any kitchen appliance that draws current from the wall is capable of fatally electrocuting users if they are not designed correctly. Appliances that have defective wiring, do not shield electrical components, or are improperly grounded can redirect electricity.
More powerful appliances such as food processors contain electric motors and blades that can do traumatic damage to anything that comes in contact. While responsible usage of food processors and similar devices should not involve hands nearing the blades during use, a defective food processor could pose a significant risk even when powered off.
