About the publication

A previous example of the BES branded DC electric pressure cooker range, the 5 litre 12 VDC model, was assessed during 2019 and was discovered to suffer fundamental safety flaws such that attempting to incorporate the cooker in the MECS programme would breach Loughborough University Ethical Policy Framework requirements.

Recent examination of two examples of a different BES branded DC EPC (3 litre 24 VDC model) discovered essentially the same set of safety flaws. The ex-factory cooker (for either model) would not be legal to be sold within the UK or EU.
