1. A removable insert -- makes it easier to wash. (Honestly? I wouldn't consider buying one without a removable insert.)
2. Round or oblong? I like the oblong-shaped crock pots. Better for fitting roasts and whole chickens.
3. While the negative is that it doesn't have a digital display with numbers (it provides a range-- 2-4 hours, not, for example, 70 minutes), it's never been a significant drawback.
My crockpot got significant use this time last year, thanks in particular to a book I found at the library, Rick Roger's "Slow Cooker Ready & Waiting." Each recipe I tried went into my permanent collection, and several I've made multiple times.
