Crock-Pots for the people, from Hungry For MO

Crysta Henthorne
KCUR 89.3

No Midwestern cookout is complete without a delicious chili or dip simmering in a Crock-Pot. But when the device was first unveiled by a Kansas City company in 1971, it promised something more: freedom. Plus, a preview of our upcoming season in May.

New episodes of A People's History of Kansas City start in May 2022. Until then, we recommend listening to the stories behind iconic foods in the state of Missouri on Hungry For MO, a podcast hosted by KCUR’s Natasha Bailey and Jenny Vergara.

You can also read more about the Kansas City women who taught America how to use the Crock-Pot from KCUR's Mackenzie Martin.
