Crock-Pot :: FUN FACTS!

2 Home Cooks has recently added ‘Today’s Crock-Pot’ to the menu – because what’s better during a New England winter than hot comfort food that almost cooks itself?

To truly appreciate the greatness that is the Crock-Pot, you should know some fun facts about its history! According to The Daily Meal and Wikipedia….

  • It was invented in the 50’s by Irving Naxon, owner of the Naxon Utilities Corporation of Chicago and was called ‘The Naxon Beanery All-Purpose Cooker,’ sometimes advertised as ‘The Electric Bean Pot.’
  • Another company in the 50’s called the Industrial Radiant Heat Corp. out of NJ advertised a similar product called the ‘Simmer Crock.’
  • The Rival Company bought Naxon in 1970 and reintroduced the product as the Crock-Pot in 1971.
  • Sunbeam Products now owns the brand name ‘Crock-Pot.’
  • The first Crock-Pot cost $25
  • Crock-Pots became popular when more women were entering the workforce, since it allowed them to a more convenient way to make dinner for their families.
  • The popularity caught on – later in the 70’s there were more than 40 companies making their own versions of it!
