Are pressure cookers safe to use?

According to IFAS Extension, early pressure cooker models got a reputation for being "dangerous" due to their poorly constructed weighted valves, which easily got clogged while cooking.As the pressure built up in the cooker, gaskets would blow, causing water or steam to spew out or the lid to fly off.

Thankfully, the design of pressure cookers has since been improved, and are said to be much safer to use.
