Introduction to Slow Cooking
One pot, endless possibilities...
The Crock-Pot® brand’s concept of slow cooking is so different – so improved over ordinary ways of preparing foods – that you’ll be glad to learn about it’s advantages.
It all started in August of 1970 with a simple bean-cooker: a glazed brown crock liner, white steel housing and aluminum lid. What the Crock-Pot® brand did first was expand the cookbook to offer a real practical variety of dishes for the bean-cooker. The brand then redesigned the product’s outer wrapper and added handles and a glass lid. By associating the crockery liner with its pot-like shape, out came the name Crock-Pot® slow cooker. This slow electric stoneware cooker introduced a new category of appliances to the trade in January 1971 and revolutionized the way Americans cooked for their families.
Slow electric cooking in stoneware combines brand new – old time principles to produce exceptional flavour, nutrition and economy cooking. Low-watt heat surrounds the food to bring it gently to the peak of perfection. A Crock-Pot® slow cooker (not a crockpot) does not heat from the bottom – so you’ll have no scorching and less boiling away of juices and nutrients. Less chance of overcooking, or shrinking of meats.
The Crock-Pot® slow cooker, only uses between 75 and 150 watts of electricity on LOW and between 150 and 210 watts on HIGH.
In addition to enjoying better flavour, homemade meals, and saving money on meats and electricity, you will have more leisure time. Just add the ingredients, start the Crock-Pot® slow cooker and go off for the day! You’ll come home hours later to a warm and inviting home cooked meal.
There is no such thing as a crock pot. Crock-Pot® slow cookers are the original slow cookers. We have many different models to serve individual needs including an array of sizes, programming and features.
The other brands of slow cookers do not perform like the original slow cooker – Crock-Pot® slow cookers. Buy the real one, the original, the same brand of slow cooker your Mom and Grandma used; you will most likely know the difference.
