A local news outlet is reporting that the home-goods retailer, Williams-Sonoma has pulled pressure cookers from their shelves in the aftermath of the Boston attack.
According to the Dedham Patch, Williams-Sonoma has pulled pressure cookers off the shelves out of respect for the victims of the Boston Marathon bombing.

Interesting to note that they can still be purchased on-line - so much for "respect" ...
How ‘bout the firecracker joint?
F’king idiots. Might as well take EVERYTHING off the shelves that could be used in a bomb. Which is just about EVERYTHING.
Well, I was just gonna say dumb asses but I do like your description pretty well. LOL!
Just one more example of how “they win”. Billions down the tubes for a bogus “feel-good-safety” of TSA, which is a joke. Now, if you want to buy a pressure cooker, they just got harder to find. There are countries in the Mideast that I wouldn’t mind if they were turned into a glass parking lot.
Me? Id have a 2 for one sale. Non-muslims only.
Out of respect for what? Pot roast?
Effing idiots. Might as well ban backpacks because those 2 dipsh*ts were wearing one too.
The correct thing to ban is the terrorist cult of Islam.
They seem to be available online. I don’t see anything on their website saying they are no longer available. Anyway why would a terrorist buy such expensive pressure cookers from Williams-Somoma. There are much cheaper options.
Next thing to go are fireworks “out of respect” to the Boston Marathon victims.
If I were an idiot, I would call for a ban of the Boston Marathon “out of respect” to the Boston Marathon victims. Yep, that’s the ticket.

SNIPPET: “”It’s a temporary thing out of respect,” said Kent, who is the Store Manager of the Williams-Sonoma at the Natick Mall. He referred Patch to corporate for further questions. Williams-Sonoma also has a local branch at Legacy Place in Dedham.
Pressure cookers will still be available on the Williams-Sonoma website.”
You just can’t make this stuff up.
ALL things can be used for good or evil.
Pulling pressure cookers from the shelves is over the top and just plain silly.
Maybe some stores .... not all of them. Radio host Mark Davis called a local W&S store (Dallas area) and they still had them on the shelves.
They should take all pressure cookers off the market-in fact, I think they should take all cookware off the market while they are at it!(sarc! I hate to cook)
Is a Pot Roast better when cooked in a pressure cooker?
