Default I'm looking for a new slow cooker...

I have a slow cooker but it's old; it's big (I'm not sure of the capacity but it's from Costco so...) I'd like a new one, I think the oval ones are probably more practical than the one I currently have, which is tall and narrow. So, my questions are:

What kind do you have? Why do you like it? What capacity is it? What features do you appreciate about it? And what features do you wish it had?

Thanks in advance, chicks!

I have this one:

It has a lot of features I like - programmability, when the programmed time is up it keeps your food warm, and the latches if you want to transport. It's a really good cooker and I'm very happy with it.

Ooh, yes - that one looks good, lots of features, which is what I'd like. The one I currently have is very bare bones, just "on, low, high". The programmability would be great, so would the 'keep warm' feature.

I like this one
http://www.hamiltonbeach.com/slow-co...w-cookers.html

It has 3 different size inserts so I can cook just a little or a lot efficiently.

I got mine at K-Mart, I think most of the box stores carry them, especially sine we are near the holidays
