It comes out of the Jewish tradition of turning off the ovens when they were heated by fire (coal, often). According to tradition, the ovens were turned off completely, and no meals could be prepared on their holy day, the Sabbath. In order to have food that was cooked in the home for that Sabbath day, the housewives left their food by the dying embers of the ovens to cook during the night. The results were quite spectacular, resulting in well cooked, delicious and nutritious foods and meals. In the early twentieth century, the crock pot was developed following this method of putting food on a low heat to cook for a long period of time. Since it first entered the market place, this kitchen implement has enjoyed plenty of sales and lots of popularity.
