I've been looking for a translation for Czech word Remoska (which means portable electric oven with a baking feature), and the best translation I could find was crockpot. Is it correct, if not, what is the best name for such an item? When was it first used and what are the origins of the portmanteau crockpot?
This article recounts the 1971 origin of the crockpot.
Like the Czech Remoska, it’s cooking vessel of some kind that plugs in. Both words are apparently trade-marked.
