History of Crock Pot

History of Crock Pot - superhealthycooking.net

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 BeaneryΒ 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.

So what is a Slow Cooker?

A slow cooker (also known as Crock pot) is a counter-top electrical cooking appliance, used to simmer your food at a lower temperature and for a longer period of time than other cooking methods. Due toΒ these differences, your recipes must be modified!

For example:

  • Quantities of liquids may need adjustment. Learn more about it HERE.
  • Cooking times must be converted. Follow this chart:

    Slow cookers make cooking so convenient especially for working moms like me. I think it’s awesome that there are plenty of recipes these days especially on pinterest. I love the idea of being able to cook home cooked meals for my family in just one go.
