History of Crock Pot
The inventor’s name is Irving Naxon who was inspired by his Lithuanian mother. She had told him stories about a bean stew (Cholent), which took several hours to cook in the oven. Irving had a vision of a portable device that could replace the oven.
He invented the Naxon Beanery in 1936 and sold his design to Rival Manufacturing in the early 1970’s. They rebranded it and put it on the market as Crock Pot. It was marketed toward working women who could place the food in the cooker in the morning and come home to a ready dish. In 1974 Rival introduced removable stoneware inserts, making the appliance easier to clean. Crock Pot was a huge success. They sold millions of them in the 70’s.
