I took a look at the thesis mentioned below. The "slow cooker" is pretty

the bottom of a large, cylindrical, pot, with heavily insulated
(w/asbestos) walls and a lid. No crockery involved, however.

TIMES and trademark records were checked), but there's a ton of stuff
_starting_ that year.  Here are the first two OCLC WorldCat citations, and
notice the large gap.  A "crock pot" in 1917 at the University of Washington?
