In review:

1. What Size do You Need?

For 4 or more people, use a 6 qt.
For 2 or 3 people, use a 4 qt.

2. What Shape Should You Buy?

A round shape is good for soups and stews.
An oval shape is good for more options, such as roasts or whole chickens.

3. Features

Should have a snug-fitting glass lid.
Removable insert so one may place it on the table and it's easier to clean.
Should have large sturdy handles.

4, Power outage.
If while you are not at home, the crockpot is cooking, then there is a power outage, throw out the food.

5. Leftovers

Do not reheat leftovers in the crockpot. Use other methods, such as a microwave.

While the hostess of this YouTube video demonstrates chicken chili, I personally love pizza soup, along with a zillion other soups to make in a crockpot.
