The appeal of having a meal ready and waiting for me when I come home (not to mention smelling it when I walk in the door) has become all too enticing. I have seen threads on recipes, but not for purchasing a crockpot. If there is such a thread, feel free to link it!
What model do you recommend, what are the pros and cons? I'll be most often cooking for just me (though I like to have dinner AND leftovers for tomorrow's lunch) but occasionally for 2-4 people. And typically, I would want to throw things in in the morning and then come back to it 8-10, possibly 12 hours later (ah the life of a grad student!)
Any suggestions regarding make, model, size, usage, recipes, etc. would be much appreciated!
