If you have a Nesco electric roaster I know for sure that it has a low temperature (slow cooking) control. You can use this roaster for normal roaster or slow roasting. Rival and Hamilton Beach also have electric roasters in the 18 qt size but I don't know what their temperature gages are.
Did you know that you can get a basic Rival crockpot for as little as $18 (maybe ever less). This time of year, most department stores have their Home Sales and crockpots are getting very popular again. Check Amazon.com too because they always have great sales and if you spend $25 you get free shipping.
Check your cookware. If you already have a heavy bottomed dutch oven, you can also slow cook in that.
Happy Slow Cooking!
