How to Choose the Right Size Instant Pot
Instant pots come in a variety of sizes, measured in quarts. Choosing the right size can seem a little bit daunting. But picking the best one for your family doesn’t have to be!
The small size (3 quarts) are great for single individuals and for cooking small side dishes.
The medium size (5, 6, or 7 quarts) are great for making meals for 2-4 people.
The large size (8 quarts) are the best for larger families or for when meals are being made for a crowd.
And remember the size will affect the cooking time, how long it takes to pressurize, and the amount of water needed. So be sure to follow the recipe and make adjustments as required!
