It really totally depends on what you are fixing. If the "roaster" you are referring to is the countertop roasting oven, that is a whole 'nother way of cooking--and may or may not be "slow cooking". There is really nothing that you do in a crockpot that can't be done in your oven, as others have alluded to, by cooking in a closed dutch oven, for example.
If you could tell us more exactly what your need is, maybe it could be answered better.
