Ever heard of a crock pot? A lot of people interchange the use of “slow cooker” and “crock pot” when referring to their long simmering kitchen appliance, even though they’re not exactly the same. Crock Pot is actually a brand name that emerged in the 70’s when slow cookers made their debut on the market.
This brand of slow cookers has definitely become a household name over the years, enough for some people to forget the fact that it is a brand name, to begin with.
Initially marketed towards working mothers, the Crock Pot has sold millions of units until its popularity waned because of the emergence of microwave ovens. It allowed them to still make delicious meals for their families even if they had to be at work the whole day as well.
The Crock Pot is also dubbed as the original slow cooker. Its inventor, Irving Naxon, actually patented his design in 1936 and called it the Naxon Beanery.
He crafted his cooking device after how his mother used to make a bean dish called “cholent” in her native Lithuania back in the day – making cholent used residual heat from the oven which is turned off during the Sabbath, so the dish is slowly cooked for 24 hours.
The brand was acquired in the early 1970s by Rival Manufacturing and rebranded it into Crock Pot, and the rest is history.
This makes the Crock-Pot SCCPVL610-S a part of the long line of original slow cookers. This fact alone makes it a great option for those who value tradition and quality, as you can be certain that the actual folks who made slow cookers know how to make a good one.
A part of the brand’s Cook & Carry line, the Crock-Pot SCCPVL610-S offers more than just an effective way to create tender and sumptuous meals without a hitch. To get to know more about this product, keep reading.
