Not a make/model, but I'd absolutely recommend getting stainless steel rather than aluminum.

I'm glad to be a part of this new thread! I love my PC and use it a lot, especially this time of the year -- soups stews, roasts, whole chickens -- it's all yummy.

Okay, typical 3-4lb. chicken, whole, I quarter a large onion, roughly cut 2 large carrots, and 2 stalks of celery. Add 4-6 cups of water. You can add seasonings, too -- salt, pepper, marjoram, thyme are my most frequent. Put all into pot, secure the lid, and bring to high pressure. Once at high, reduce to medium and cook 5 minutes for every pound of meat, which usually translates to about 20-25 minutes, just to be safe. Remove from heat, reduce pressure (I usually run the whole pot under cold water), take the lid off. Remove chicken and allow to cool so you can work with it (taking meat off bones, etc.). The stock is lovely and you can work through whether you want to keep the cooked veggies or not (I do, then pulverize them and make a thicker broth from the stock and veggies). The meat tastes great and of course can be used for lots of things. I usually do this to make soup (add back to the broth about 2 cups of chopped chicken and then boil in some noodles), then freeze the rest of the chicken meat I have picked from the bones.

I don't have a crock pot, either! I did for a long time, but once I got my PC, I realized how washed-out the flavors are in a crock pot. So when my crock pot died last year (yes, they actually die -- mine was probably 25 years old!), I didn't replace it. And have never regretted it.
