  1. Notice the unremovable insert and lack of buttons and switches. You just filled it up and plugged it in. If you’re the type of person who worries about today’s slow cookers burning down your house, this device is probably your worst nightmare.
    That half-broken cord… D:

    Taken from this [blog](http://www.corningware411.com/2013/07/whats-old-is-new-is-old-again-but-also.html):

    > The original Slow-Cooker or at least the basic idea, was introduced by Naxon Utilities Corporation in August of 1970 and dubbed the Beanery all-purpose cooker. Irving Naxon, the inventor, was evidently inspired by a story his grandmother told him about how *her* mother had made Cholent in the the oven back in Lithuania. Cholent is a slow-cooked bean-barley stew traditionally served on the Sabbath. The soup would be started on Friday evening, before sundown, and slowly cooked until midday the next day. Given the amount of time required to make it, Naxon set out to create an appliance that would “do all the work.”

    > His answer was the Beanery, a self contained ceramic crock/heating element that ran at a low temperature and could simply be plugged in, the contents of the stew added and left to simmer slowly for hours until it was time to eat.

    > The Rival Company bought out Naxon Utilities in late 1970 or early 1971 (the date seems to be a little fuzzy) and were less than impressed with the Beanery, but it was given over to the test kitchen personnel to see what they could do with it. They came back with a plethora of recipes for this “slow cooking” device that were delicious with minimal effort. So, Rival repackaged the device in late 1971 and dubbed it the ‘Crock-Pot’…. Needless to say, it was a hit. But they didn’t stop there, in 1974 they made the crocks removable for easier cleaning.

    Wikipedia articles on the [Slow cooker](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Slow_cooker) and [Cholent](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cholent). Here’s wiktionary’s definition of [Crock](https://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/crock).

  2. While I agree that safety standards have improved I think that manufacturing quality and reliability of household appliances has declined.

    My electrical engineer roommate explained it to me this way in college. With software the first version of something is buggy and gradually improves over time. With hardware the early version is often carefully handmade and for all subsequent versions the goal is to make it cheaper and cheaper as long as it still works.

  3. I’m turning 47 this year. I suddenly understand why every single kitchen I was ever in as a child had a crockpot on the counter (and why they all seemed to dissappear in 1979 to be replaced by air popper popcorn makers). I had assumed that slow cookers were a lot older than that, not a 70’s food trend.
