Crock Pot® is the registered trademark of Rival. However it has become the generic name for all cookers of this type. Crockpots are also called slow cookers. In late 1970, Rival acquired the assets of another company, including an appliance called the 'Beanery'. It was a basic bean cooker. Cooks and chefs started to experiment with this little bean cooker. Soon they discovered that it cooked meat even better than beans...and the Rival Crock Pot® was born.
