Do you use a crock-pot / slow cooker?

With the sophisticated cookware collections discussed on this board, just wondering if you ever use a crock pot? I have one (6 qt) sitting in my cabinet...considering getting rid of it unless I am otherwise inspired by your responses. I know a lot of people make pot roast in them, but I love my cast iron dutch oven for that. I recently saw a highly rated baked ziti crock pot recipe, can't remember where, but I was thinking about the various pots and pans I could use, like my Le Creuset braiser, or my Viking saute pan....why would I want or need to use a crock pot?
