The slow cooker is derived from the Jewish tradition of not baking on the Sabbath, considered a day of complete rest from work. Even the ovens had to be turned off on this day, so the night before Sabbath the ovens would be allowed to go out in preparation for the next day of rest. So the housewives would sit their foods in and next to the oven and allow the next day’s food to cook slowly in the dying heat of the oven fire. The foods were fabulous, and a way of cooking was born. In the early 20th century an enterprising entrepreneur saw this going on, and developed a mini version of this process, today’s slow cooker was born. And since its inception way back then, the slow cooker has become more and more popular.
