The largest or smallest is dependent upon how you define the terms. In total surface area, the endoplasmic reticulum could be considered the largest.
A ribosome could be considered to be the smallest in size.Source(s): Biology instructor for 40 years

Which cell are you talking about?
The smallest cell organelle is the ribosome.
Largest in eukaryotic cell is the nucleus.
In non-nucleated animal cell it would be the mitochondria.
Plants: can be either vacoule or chloroplast.
Normally prokaryotic cells don't really have organelles.. But there are exceptions.

smallest = vacoule
largest = cell membrane / nucleus. nucleus makes more sense though.
