I use an inexpensive Rival crockpot--must be ten years old at least, and attach a timer if I want to time cook. They all operate the same, so size is more important than brand. I agree a 4-5 qt pot will hold a whole chicken or a sizable(4-6lb) roast. I think all of them now have the removable crock, which is important for cleaning.
Oh, do get a lid that just lifts off with no hinges; makes easier to clean and store.

I was a sugarbaby; meaning since I was born I was given lots of sugar, and ate lots of processed foods, especially sweets until I was into my thirties. Most people in the west were/are sugarbabies.
