Sorry if this sounds stupid to those who have been using pressure cookers:
If for example I have a 6.5l one, can I still do smaller portions in it?
Does it change times/heat/any type of handling?

Oh and if you use one, you put the hob on full-power, yes?
Yes, you can do smaller portions, the key is to have enough liquid.
No, times don‘t change.

I have both a ceramic hob and a portable induction hob. For the ceramic, I start on high till it gets to pressure and then low medium to sustain pressure. Induction is great for short cooking times. I can start it at medium and drop it all the way down to the lowest to sustain pressure. I have to keep an eye on my induction hob.....if cooking time is long, i sometimes release pressure and let it build back up either by releasing it on the top, or by turning off the heat for a few minutes. Induction can be powerful.

You have to play with your hob settings to work that out.
