I tried to take the top off my pressure cooker too early and it blew up in my face. I had a real mess to clean up, and a small burn on my face. It was really stupid of me not to wait for it to stop steaming 100%. You would think I was smarter then that. I just underestimated the pressure that pot was under. I hope America does not blow up after this election. The country is under allot of pressure and it could get messy. I'm OK, and I won't try that again!
