Crock-Pot Express Multi-Cooker An All-in-One Appliance

So here we’ve got a Crock-Pot Express Crock Multi-Cooker. I’ve been wondering what all the fuss was about using this cooker NOW I know.  Here is a little history of how Crock-Pot was started.   It started out as Rival that was founded in Kansas City, Missouri in 1932 by Henry J. Talge as the Rival Manufacturing Co. 

At the time Rival was specialized in die casting. It certainly wasn’t long after this that they started producing food preparation product under the O-Mat line for products like the Juice-O-Mat Juicer, Can-O-Mat can opener, and a Broil-O-Mat broiler. 

Then the company shut down to produce ammunition during World War II, Rival expanded their product lines in the post-war era. Then they acquired Waverly Products Inc. expanding their products into the home appliances market with Waverly’s popular Steam-O-Mat iron. 

In 1963, the company was sold to Stern Brother Investment Bank and went public in 1964. Soon after, they acquired Titan Manufacturing Company and their line of portable electric heaters. In 1970, they acquired Naxon Utilities Corp., makers of the little-known product called the “Bean Pot” slow cooker. Rival re-introduced the Bean Pot as the Crock-Pot in 1971, and it quickly became one of their top products. This is a little bit of history I had no idea how Crock-Pot got started very interesting information no doubt.

So I want to share my experience with using the Crock-Pot Express Crock Multi-Cooker. I was super excited to have one of these cookers because there is so much you can cook with them and it cuts down the time of cooking on the stove or in the oven. My very 1st time cooking something I made Chicken & Rice which was pretty simple. There are so many recipes online, Crock-Pot and Pinterest where you can use the Multi-Cooker.  Here are a few photos I took of the Crock-Pot Express Crock Mult-Cooker before I cooked Chicken & Rice.

My son in law told me how to do the chicken & rice because he has a Cooker like mine and he uses his to cook a variety of things in theirs. Like I said this is super simple to follow the directions on whatever you cook.

I also tried to make pulled BBQ chicken but I somehow didn’t get it right on my part but my husband said it turned out really good and tender it took 15mins to cook both meals.  On Thanksgiving, I cooked 2 hams in the cooker. The Hams came out nice and tender and moist better than baking in the oven. 

The only thing I didn’t like is the release valve it’s tough to try and release the pressure because the valve moves to awkwardly but once its moved it does what it’s supposed to do. The functions are simple to use and read.  I have been testing different things using this AWESOME cooker I love IT!

  • Eight one-touch digital meal settings make it easy to create meats and stews, beans and chili, rice and risotto, poultry, dessert, soups, yogurts, and multi-grains.
  • Four one-touch cook functions allow you to slow cook, pressure cook, brown and sauté, or steam
  • In addition to pressure cooking, select brown/sauté, slow cook, or steam for even more versatility

  • Includes recipe book, steaming rack, and serving spoon
