And when they weren’t burning themselves with it or using it to fend off Saber-toothed tigers and the occasional dinosaur, they used it to cook their food. While their craniums were small, they figured out that cooking food with low heat over many hours produces intense flavors, super-tender meat, and incredibly delicious smells. Fast-forward 10,000 years, when modern men and women – with much larger craniund incredibly delicious smells. Fast-forward 10,000 years, when modern men and women – with much larger craniums - improved upon the “low and slow” process thanks to a sturdy device that used electricity, not fire, to achieve the same results. It is called a slow-cooker - an improvement brought on largely by the lack large fire pits inside our homes.Regardless of the reason, a slow-cooker (often called a Crock Pot®) is an inexpensive cooking tool available to just about everyone (except in Antarctica and parts of Utah).
