What slow cooker do you have?

Hi, I know I’m a million years late but I’m just thinking about getting a slow cooker. I’m so bored with the dinners we have over and over, I think I might be able to make some different things in a way that isn’t too difficult or time consuming.
If you love your slow cooker, which one do you have please?
Would also love to know, in general, if a slow cooker has made life easier. Has anyone not got on with one?

Instant pot. I do far more slow cooked stuff now I can sear the meat/fry the onions in the same pot and then switch over to slow cook mode. So if you don’t want an instant pot I’d recommend getting a slow cooker with this feature or a hob proof liner that you can use on your hob first.

I thought that a few times. Watery, tasteless?
That has to be misunderstanding the way to 'slow' a normal recipe. DSis does something similarly daft when she doesn't double check a recipe that is slow cooking on a hob or oven. She regularly forgets to reduce the amount of liquid. She blames the sloco and then doesn't believe me when I feed her a sloco dish that is unctuous and thick.
