Depends how you plan to use it. Bear in mind slow cookers work at two-thirds to three- quarters full. let's say you want to make meat stew. if you were doing it in a saucepan on the stove-top, putting meat, potatoes, carrot, beans, mushrooms etc all in the one pan with liquid, what size pan would that be, allowing that it would not be full to the brim? That's the size slow cooker you want.
However, beware of buying too small. Personally, I like to cook 2 or 3 times the quantity I want now, freeze the surplus and have a day off from cooking next week. Also, I make my own sauces and ketchups and I need a large cooker for them.
Don't lose sleep over it. Most people get hooked once they get used to using these cookers - you might end up with 2 or 3 in different sizes, as I have done!
