In the 1950’s, a Chicago company created the first slow cooker. Naxon Utilities Corporation called it the Beanery All Purpose Cooker and it was designed to help people cook baked beans. A simple ceramic pot fitted inside a metal pan with heating elements around the inside helped maintain a low temperature for many hours.
In 1970 Rival bought the Beanery and it was reinvented as the Crock Pot and cooking has never been the same. Crocks Pots now come in many sizes from one to seven quarts.,-Today-and-Beyond&id=3170417
What started as an invention to help cook beans, the Crock Pot is now used to create dishes from appetizers to desserts.
This easy recipe for Crock of Low-fat Creamy Spinach Dip is best for a small crock pot. Ready in about an hour and a half without watching and stirring, this creamy dip is great served with crunchy fresh vegetables.
Boston Bakes Beans were made for the Crock Pot because the pot was invented for cooking beans, but there is a warning about cooking beans in a slow cooker.
According to the US Food and Drug Administration, some raw beans like red kidney, can become toxic when cooked at low temperatures. To avoid illness, soak raw beans for five hours in water, drain thoroughly, then boil for at least 10 minutes in fresh water before using in Crock Pot recipes.
