Etymology is given as From Crock-Pot™, a registered trademark of Rival Industries. This does not seem right, as I am sure the term was around long before it was trademarked. Horse before the cart, perhaps. --Dmol 19:35, 3 June 2006 (UTC)

I wrote this in the process of adding genericized trademarks. Didn't think at the time that it could very well be incorrect. Davilla 13:28, 5 June 2006 (UTC)
My uninformed guess would be that it is some derivation of crockery. - TheDaveRoss 14:28, 5 June 2006 (UTC)
