Over the years we have had several inquiries from readers about slow cookers made in the USA. Maybe you call them Crock Pots, which are a name-brand. Either way, USA Love List editors have done the research to see if something American made is available so you don't have to. Here is what we found.
ARE THERE ANY SLOW COOKERS MADE IN THE USA?
Yes! Though USA Love List editors have not been able to find any of the traditional ceramic insert slow cookers made in the USA, we were able to find one American made slow cooker. Learn more about the 360 Cookware Slow Cooker below.

360 Cookware Slow Cooker
360 Cookware offers 3 made in USA Slow Cooker sizes; 2.3 Quart, 4 Quart, and 6 Quart. The 2.3 Quart size includes the 360 Cookware casserole pan with cover and steel heating base. This size is perfect for dips and sauces and for cooking meals for two. The 4 Quart size includes the 360 Cookware 4 Quart stock pot with cover and steel heating base. This size fits a small chicken. The 6 Quart size includes the 360 Cookware 6 Quart stock pot with cover and steel heating base. This size is great for cooking larger chicken and other family meals.
360 Cookware manufactures pans and bakeware in Wisconsin. 360 Cookware is made of T-304 Surgical Grade Stainless Steel, so your food never comes into contact with non-stick coatings and other potentially-hazardous elements that can seep into your food. All pans in the slow cooker sets are part of their pot and pan collection.
The brilliant thing about this style of slow cooker is that you are cooking in a regular pot. Most slow cooker recipes start with browning meat or softening vegetables on the stove. You can do that right in the pot without the need for dirtying other pans. Also, if you get a late start on your slow cooker recipe, you can cook it all or part way on the stove top then set it on the slow cooker base to finish or gently simmer until meal time. This is a true savior for anyone running out to pick up kids from activities just before dinner time or for anyone who has to hold a hot meal for someone who is not sure when they will make it home. Finally, the 360 Cookware pot will be in regular use, on the stove, in the oven, and as a slow cooker, while the slow cooker base is compact and easy to store. You may never look back once you try this style and this also makes a fantastic American made gift.
