Sear and Stew slow cookers

I already own a standard slow cooker but it's in its last legs and I like the idea of searing all in one pot.

Any recommendations on which one to get. I have a crappy old ceramic hob and have heard a few reviews about the non-stick melting when searing food?

Also is it worth paying extra to get a digital model?

When my slow & pressure cookers die I'll probably get an Instant Pot.
They are multi-purpose, & would save room in my small kitchen.

I've actually got an IP but not overtly impressed with it. Currently sat gathering dust at the back of my cupboard!

I have the sear and stew, it's a basic morphy Richards one. Really happy with it and it's lasted years. I do have a gas hob though. Really useful for browning meat and not having to dirty another pot.

That's my thinking @Invisimamma. Just wondering if will work ok with ceramic hobs

@DorsetCamping Can I ask what's wrong with the IP, please?
Does it not sear & stew? I'm really interested in it.

Tbh I prefer my old pressure cooker. Every time I've used the IP for pressure cooking, the food has always stuck to the bottom even with the right amount of liquid.
