Suggestions on Multi-Cookers

Only one thing is holding me back: the non-stick coating on the cooking pot. One of my favorite uses for a slow cooker is making mulled wine. In my old slow cooker (sadly deceased), I used to leave wine and spices warming all afternoon. However I'm not comfortable about leaving something highly acidic (like wine - or even tomato sauce for that matter) simmering in a non-stick pan.

What do you folks think? Am I being overly paranoid? Is anyone aware of a similar model with a stainless steel or ceramic pot?
