I've been reading through threads on ChowHound for years, and finally decided to join.
I couldn't find an answer to this in a past thread, but perhaps you could redirect me?
I'm really interested in getting a slow cooker that can be used on the stovetop to sear. But I really don't want a non-stick coating that could flake off. I've done a variety of searches, and am having trouble finding a model like that. Possibly the Hamilton Beach Premiere Cookware slow cooker, but even that seems unclear. It's advertised as cast aluminum, but it sounds like users have had a nonstick coating come off.
ETA: just realized this might fit better into the Cookware category.
