From Jacqui: How many can packages can fit? I have a freezer that is 7cf. But
it contains a little tray component. The freezer measurements without the
tray is(bear with me, I'm not good with LxWxD) 23 across x 16 W x 25
deep (I'm assuming depth) and the tray is 8 across x 16 w x 15 D. We are
trying to see how many 9 L x 6 W x 3.5 D packages can fit in the freezer.
Please help me. I'm getting app. 60. I need 84 to be able to fit. Answered by Penny Nom.

From Marsha: I have a stand up freezer that measures 2ft deep, 23 inches wide, and 44.5 inches in height. I multiplied them (2x23x44.5) and came up with 2047. I guess my question is, when you look at an ad for this item, they always say 17, 14, or 19 cubic feet. How do they (and I) come up with a number like that? Answered by Penny Nom.

Is the volume of a home appliance (e.g. fridge or freezer) calculated in a different way? I am planning to replace both my fridge and my freezer but I'm unable to determine what size replacement to get.

For example, one company descibes their fridge as being 32"(L) x 30"(W) x 66" (H). I converted those measurements to feet (2.67 x 2.5 x 5.5) and I calculate the fridge to be 36.7 cubic feet. However, the company says the fridge is 18 cf.
