I have a small 4 quart slow cooker. I am looking for recommendations on a 6 quart or larger one... possibly with a locking lid to be able to travel easily for potluck dinners. Can anyone help me?
I haven't seen any major differences in the performance of the five slow cookers that I have. One is a Sylvania, one is a Rival and the others are Crock Pots. Find one that has a light indicating the settings, that has a Hold Worm setting, and most brands today do offer those with the locking lid. If price is a factor for you, I would suggest the middle price range. The high end items seem to have more elaborate "décor" than functions. Happy Shopping!

My new crock pot that stirs has a locking lid. The lid locks pretty tight. It has two cords, one out of the stirring unit on the top and regular cord. They plug together. Have fun shopping.
If you're concerned about high heats see if you can find a brand that has the built in spoon rest. The slot for the spoon rest allows for venting and it doesn't cook as hot.

I have Redmond 4502 multi-cooker, google it. It’s a perfect combination of slow cooker, pressure cooker, steamer, bread maker…. It has 5L bowl, and I would strongly recommend to get multi-cooker instead of slow cooker. Price is relatively same, but it has much more modes in compare with simple slow cooker.
I shared here few receipts as well. In particular, everything you can do with slow cooker, and you make in multi cooker and much more.
