The ‘Crock Pot’ has a long history, first dating back to the inventor Irving Naxon who applied for a food heating device patent in 1936 to create what he called the Naxon Beanery. The heating device was meant to be a portable way of heating food evenly. In the early 1970’s, Naxon sold his patented design to Rival Manufacturing who distributed the idea under the name ‘Crock Pot.’ Since then, the evolution and popularity of the slow cooker have boomed with many households today still using the technology.
Today, more than 80 percent of American households still use and love the crock pot, according to The NPD Group. Though there are many recipes that can be made with a slow-cooker, a favorite is always classic comfort foods. There’s just something about warm, hearty, traditional foods that have slow simmered. Which is why we were delighted to receive a copy of Stock the Crock by Phyllis Good.
