What crock pots have you been eyeing, and why? What's the source of the best prices you have found?

If I wanted a little one, for oatmeal, dips, gravy, or cooking for two, I'd buy one at Goodwill, they always have littles ones. I have my been eyeing a 7qt oval, however. I'd like to be able to do small turkeys, and my largest 5.5qt crockpot is round which makes it even smaller.

Amazing price, I don't think I've ever seen a 7 qt even at Walmart for this price. There is also a stainless steel one for $5 more, and a travel bag for $10. If I was going low-end I'd buy this one:

This one is FlyLady's favorite crock pot. "This 6-quart pot can be used on the stovetop for cooking soup or stew, go into the oven for roasting a chicken or baking a casserole, and placed on its 300-watt heating base for slow-cooking a pot roast or keeping food warm while serving." I don't use non-stick cookware for health reasons and for thyroid reasons, and this has it; love everything else though:

This one also tempts me, Hamilton Beach 3-in-1. Drawbacks are it's not oval, and, it doesn't go up to 7 quart, 6 is it's max, and a 6 that's not oval is pretty small. Plus there are mixed reviews on Amazon, some of them very serious and some of them repeated. I really love the concept, but I just don't think I would buy:
