Popular Crock Pot Recipes & A QUICK SUMMARY OF THE HISTORY OF THE”CROCK POT”
Slow cookers (Crock Pots) became popular in the US during the 1940s when women began to work outside of the home. The need for an easy way to cook a meal opened up a world of possibilities for inventors.
Families could start dinner cooking in the morning before going to work and finish preparing the meal in the evening when they came home.
The Naxon Utilities Corporation of Chicago (under the guidance of electrical engineer Irving Naxon) (Nachumsohn) developed the Naxon Beanery All-Purpose Cooker. The engineer, Naxon was inspired by a story from his mother which told how back in her childhood her mother made a traditional Jewish stew which took several hours to cook in an oven. This lead him to start brain storming ideas until he could solve this problem at which time he invented the “Beanery All Purpose Cooker,” which is what we all know now as the “Crock Pot.”
In 1970 the “Rival Company” from Sedalia, Missouri bought Naxon Utilities Corporation, at which time they acquired Naxon’s 1940 patent for the “Beanery All Purpose Cooker.”
Knowing it was a game changer Rival then asked inventor Robert Glen Martin, (from Boonville, Missouri) to develop Naxon’s bean cooker into a large scale model which could easily cook an entire family meal which went further than just cooking a bean meal.
Martin took the original device and quickly designed and then produced the mass-making machines for Rival’s manufacturing line and called them the “Crock-Pot.” The cooker was then introduced to the public under the name “Crock-Pot” in 1971.
Although the “Crock Pot” wasn’t an instant hit it became popular in 1974 when Rival introduced removable stoneware inserts which made the appliance easier to clean and the food easier to cook.
Since the early 70’s the “Crock Pot” has became an American household sensation, selling millions of units.
Other brands have since made a version of the ” Crock Pot “appliance. They include
In 2021 the original Crock-Pot brand still exists and now belongs to a company named Newell Brands.
