The cookware giant has decided to temporarily stop selling pressure cookers at retail locations, including the Garden City store in Cranston.
If you're in the market for a new pressure cooker to whip up some stew or pulled pork, don't head to the Cranston Williams-Sonoma for the time being.
Williams-Sonoma, the specialty retailer of home furnishings and gourmet cookware with more than 250 stores in the United States, has pulled pressure cookers from their shelves following the Boston Marathon bombing.
It was first reported that Williams-Sonoma pulled pressure cookers from shelves in stores in Massachusetts, but a call to the Cranston location in Garden City Center shows the company has issued a larger company directive.
Cranston store manager Kyle, who asked his last name not to be used, said pressure cookers were taken off the shelves via a company directive because it didn't seem appropriate to sell them in the wake of the marathon bombings....

W-S Don’t forget the evil kitchen knives, hundreds of thousands wounded each year /s
Stupid, stupid, stupid ... the terrorists will just find another vessel for their bombs.
Which pipe manufacturer will be the first to pull all pipe supplies, after all pipe as a bomb making material has been around a long time.
I heard the Boston bombs contained nails and BBs. It’s time to ban all nails larger than a 3-penny, and 3-penny nails can only be purchased in lots of five, and at that there must be a 72-hour waiting period. As for BBs...forget it!
I get my evil Pressure Cookers at Goodwill. Cheap and untracable.
Nails, ball bearings, wire, batteries, cell phones, backpacks will be next.
Well that’ll sure help.
I have 2 used pressure cookers in good condition which i would be willing to sell to anyone who is not on a terrorist watch list.
I bought one there that looked good but beware of worn-out gaskets (I think that’s what they’re called).
Surprisingly my pressure cooker fell out of my boat as I was crossing our local lake to register it with the authorities. To bad, so sad.
DHS will buy up all the pressure cookers.
Geez it’s just gesture. People need to lighten up. What they’re doing harms nothing
So, if muslims start deploying car bombs in America, are cars going to be pulled from the shelves too?
Muslims attack, Americans get punished...
BUT WE HAVE TO MAKE SURE WE DON’T FORM ANY NEGATIVE OPINIONS ABOUT THE MUSLIMS OH NO...
How STUPID and really gutless! It’s like NBC pulling episode 4 of Hannibal because of the Boston bombings.
Not the vessel with the pestle I trust.
You mean except those customers who need a pressure cooker to prepare meals for themselves and their families? Where does it end? What else do I have to give up besides, firearms, cold medications, cooking utensils, privacy, tax monies, trust, the 1st, 2nd, 4th and 5th amendments and goodness knows what else?
Well, we could watch Operation Rabbit where wile e. coyote tries to build a pressure cooker on top of Bugs!
