You know those pressurized cookers that sputter and spit, and make the funny hissing pop noises? The ones your grandmothers used to can and cook the most delicious meals in?
The high-end home goods retailers have taken pressure cookers off the shelves after the Boston Marathon. The pressure cookers will still be available on the Williams-Sonoma website in Natick, Mass.
“ Temporarily out of respect”
The pressure cookers were used as a bomb casings and in the making of a “weapon of mass destruction resulting in death.” Anyone using a pressure cooker knows they can certainly destroy a kitchen or at least the ceiling by shooting food all over it.
Some people avoid using them altogether in the home out of fear of the pressured contents. Williams-Sonoma is temporarily taking the pressure cookers out of the stores out of respect for the Boston Marathon.
In this specific case there’s no doubt that the two explosives killed and destroyed, and injured many people.
