Slow cookers and slow cookery

Advice please regarding a slow cooker. I'm in my 70s and now my wife isn't able to do much of the cooking, I'm wondering if I can perhaps widen our choice of meals by investing in a slow cooker. There's just the two of us, and we like simple food. I know very little about cooking, but I'm very good at following instructions. So, on to my three specific questions ...
1. Any reason why it would not make sense to get a 3.5 litre slow cooker rather than a 1.5 litre?
2. Many years ago, I was served a delicious meal that was definitely cooked in a slow cooker, and IIRC the ingredients were just pork, apple and onion. Anybody know what the recipe could have been?
3. And finally, we're dependent on online ordering and home delivery, so if I wanted to make some sort of beef stew, exactly what meat should I order (from either Tesco's or Morrison's)? I rather like the idea of ordering more than I'd need for one meal, and keeping the rest in the freezer, and if it makes any difference, we definitely don't like fatty meat. We're hard up but we'd rather pay a bit more to avoid fat.
Hope that all makes some kind of sense
