First I will say thank you for asking this question. I usually have a lot fun explaining this when people have brought it up in the past. I would get a kick out of the fact they were usually more confused after I answered them. Do not worry I will not do this to you. Basically it is hard for me go really explain, because a crock pot and slow cooker are the same, but completely different. They have many differences. Since I didn't want to confuse you, I decided to find a Web page that could explain it in a way that I would do, just better detail. I found this blog post that I hope helps you out on this subject.
