Has anyone ever had their instant pot cooker explode on them?

It happened to me today. I was cooking ropa vieja. After it’s finished cooking, I release the steam valve, open the lid, I try to use a ladle to remove the food. The bottom of the pop bubbles up like a volcano, and suddenly splashes all over me! Fortunately, I didn’t get burned or anything. Has this ever... show more It happened to me today.
