IMO: yes.

6QT at minimum if it's your main machine.
Otherwise, as a side-dish or rice cooker, this one would probably suffice.

You can only safely fill the pot 1/2-2/3 the way without worrying of clogging the steamer valve at the top of these Instant Pots, so the problem with the mini is that you only have 2/3 of this tiny pot to actually fill with food. Foods with a high propensity of foaming are even worse so must be limited to avoid blockage. This severely limits the amount of food or types of food that you can cook in a little one.

Depends if you want leftovers or not. It's subjective. The pots work the same.

Not necessarily, but it depends on the quantity and type of food being cooked. For certain stews, I think the larger size really helps. This size is probably easier to store if smaller, obviously, and if you're making food for one or two people, it's probably good enough. As a rice cooker, it's probably preferred in this size, too. I'd say the majority of food that is made for two people would be perfectly fine with this unit.

Depends on what you're making, and how big your family is. A batch of soup or yogurt.. or even rice would be perfect in this size - for any size family. Dinners would be small & simple - especially for those who are single, or even an older couple whose kids have grown up & moved out. However, a meatloaf or hot wings for a family would obviously require one of the larger sizes. :-D

*facepalm* Apologies, Cujobob... totally missed your reply when I posted mine - basically said the exact same thing you did. :-/. Sorry. Smilie
