BAN THE PRESSURE COOKER.  How stupid is this, if any terrorists plan on repeating the Boston bombings they already have theirs, glad I have mine already, albeit, I don’t live in Mass.  – Phoebe

‘Out of Respect’: Williams-Sonoma Temporarily Halts Sale of Pressure Cookers in Mass. Stores

Williams Sonoma Temporarily Halts Sale of All Pressure Cookers in Mass. Stores

Williams-Sonoma has decided to temporarily halt the sale of pressure cookers in its Massachusetts stores, Patch reports.

The move by the specialty retailer comes days after it was first reported that pressure cookers were used in last week’s terrorist attacks in which three people were killed and approximately 200 injured.

“It’s a temporary thing out of respect,” one Williams-Sonoma manager told Patch in an interview, later referring them to the chain’s corporate offices.

Here are some more details from the report:

Pressure cookers will still be available on the Williams-Sonoma website.

Crate & Barrel is still selling pressure cookers in their stores, according to Elizabeth who is the General Manager of the location at the Natick Mall.

She noted that they hadn’t sold any pressure cookers recently. Crate & Barrel will also be observing the statewide moment of silence today at 2:50 p.m., and had a floral arrangement set up. Their employees all wore Boston gear to work on Friday.

Macy’s referred Patch to their corporate offices for comment.

Williams-Sonoma has more than 250 stores nationwide. The decision to halt the sale of pressure cookers only affects stores in Massachusetts.

“What’s next, a self-imposed ban on the sale of backwards baseball caps?” Reason’s understandably irritated Mike Riggs asks.

  1. They’re just cutting off their nose to spite their face, others will be selling them. I think it’s more of a marketing strategy to make it look like they’re compassionate. I think this will backfire big time on them since people who can are normally conservatives because liberals are too lazy to garden.

  2. Please, Phoebe Hon…
    Gimme a break… I’m an olde dude, liberal, progressive, pragmatist and we’ve been gardening fore half a century or more…! 🙂

    We have two pressure cookers a large one for actual caning of fruits and veggies and a smaller one for doing stews or Sunday dinners… 🙂

    So pretty lady… you are being just a bit “harsh” 😦 in yer judgement of all liberals…

    Hugs Hon…!
