Picking The Right Size
Size does matter when it comes to an electric pressure cooker. Nobody can say anything different. The choice varies based on the number of people you will be cooking for. For a bachelor, or even a small family, smaller sizes like the 5 litre to 6 litre is more than enough. The smaller electric pressure cookers are easier to maintain, more efficient to cooker lesser amounts of foods, and costs lesser to swap out older parts for brand new ones. The bigger variant, or the eight litre variant, takes more time to build pressure, needs more liquid to intensify the steam and is bulky to store. Especially when you do not have much use for it.
A larger electric pressure cooker is designed with more metal in the body. This takes time to heat up, which directly increases the time it takes to build enough pressure to cook your ingredients.
As the size of the electric pressure cooker increases, so does the amount of minimum water used to build pressure. While a smaller electric pressure cooker uses somewhere around half a cup of water, the larger variants can use up to 2 cups of water. As the amount of liquid used increases, the functionality of the electric pressure cooker decreases. While you may have been able to braise your meat in a smaller electric pressure cooker, you can only boil the same amount of meat in a larger variant of electric pressure cookers.
Considering a more practical approach, larger variants of electric pressure cookers are harder to store. A bulkier electric pressure cooker takes up more shelf space. They are also harder to clean given the sheer size. In our opinion, the larger an electric pressure cooker is to maintain, the harder it is to maintain, which may restrict your usage from how much you may want to.
Each size has its own advantage. A chef may prefer a larger cooker to reduce the workload effectively. A smaller electric pressure cooker can be used by families or a smaller group of people to cook to their specific requirements.
5L Electric Pressure Cooker
These smaller electric pressure cookers are excellent for making sauces and curries. 5L Electric Pressure Cooker can also be used to cook one or two servings of rice or a bit more quantity of soup. This is the ideal size for people living alone or two people living together at most.

Typically, every recipe you may search for online is for six or eight litres cookers. So, you may have to alter recipes to fit the three litre electric pressure cooker. This is easier said than done, as sometimes, every rudimentary calculations of ours can go wrong. If you are looking to experiment with recipes, we would recommend going with a six or eight litre electric pressure cooker.
6L or 8L Electric Pressure Cookers
This variant of electric pressure cookers are more efficient for a family of four to six. These 6L Electric Pressure cooker or 8L Electric Pressure Cooker can be used to cook curries, stew and pretty much any recipe that can be made in an electric pressure cooker. This electric pressure cooker can prepare up to six servings of rice and over sixteen cups of soup. However, this variant is far more versatile and can be used to prepare lesser amounts of food as well. For a beginner who is just starting to cook, we recommend option for this variant as recipes are easier to find.
When it comes to electric pressure cookers, they are a bit taller and the base is a bit wider. This makes for a larger area to brown food. However, with each advantage, there is a very slight disadvantage. These sizes are bulkier, which makes them harder to clean.
