My second All-Clad slow cooker has its second cracked insert so I am looking for another slow cooker. Just wondering what kind of slow cookers others are using. What do you like/dislike? Which slow cookers are safest in terms of the type of materials used in the insert? (I remember a while back there was some concern about the possibility of lead leaching from some slow cookers.) Thanks!

I have an All-Clad. I've had it for seven months now. So far no cracks...fingers crossed!

I also have an All-Clad - I have the one with the cast aluminum insert. I would be crushed if something happened to it, I LOVE it!! I've had it for over a year now, using it at least three times a week.

Is there a nonstick finish on the aluminum insert?

I have a ceramic insert. I remember the discussion of lead in the ceramic. But I think as long as the glaze is intact there was no issue of leaching.
