How to Choose the Size of an Electric Pressure Cooker

Under 5 liters

This is good for singles or couples, as whole meals can be cooked for two here. It will also do for one course to serve a small family.

5-7 liters

This is a normal pressure cooker size for an average family with 3-5 members. It can accommodate a full meal recipe but is not too bulky to store.

7.5 – 10 liters

The ideal pressure cooker size for large families with more than 6 members, or if you often cook for large groups of people, or like to freeze food.

Over 10 liters

These larger ones are generally used for pressure cooking large amounts of food that you want to store in jars or pints, for catering purposes, or any other semi-commercial venture that requires you to cook for more than 15 people at a time.
