Have been looking for something that would tell me which pots were which. When they are being discussed pots are referred to in litres but when I go to get some from the shop I can't see where it says how many litres they are only the diameter in cm. So I found this and thought it may save someone else the effort of looking, mind you if they can't be arsed looking on the web they probably haven't used the search button either. Anywho hope this helps some one.

peace out

For a rough guide
Square pots- length x width x height = volume
Round pots- Pi x r2 x height = volume

Check Looselips equation, it matters not what it is, the volume will be the same.

I think the best way to find the volume of your pots is to put a plastic bag inside a fill with water

I'm unsure now, going by the size guide my pot should be 6-7 litres, but going by the maths calculator it's only 5 L !

I think i trust the guide more.
