    Default I need a decent analogy to describe a measurement.

    Im looking at an air fryer online that says it has 930 cubic inches of space. Can anyone tell me what that would look like? As an example, "Oh with that much space you could fit a 14 pound turkey" Thats the sort of thing im looking for as doing searches online all i can get are conversion tables and knowing its like .5 cubic feet or whatever isnt really helpful.

    Well that's a bit less space than a cube with a 10-inch side. I'm not sure if that helps but I always find it easier to fall back to length measures to understand volume ones.

    I'll take that bet.

    Or it's about 4 US gallons. Which would weigh about 32 pounds. A turkey would be denser, but also not block-shaped, so I can't say what would fit.

    If it was 8.5 x 11 inches, aka the size of standard printer paper, it would be just under 10 inches deep. More than enough space for a chicken, isn't gonna fit much in the way of a turkey.

    Thank you for the help guys, turns out we arent getting it. After a bit of research I was able to determine that I was looking at a scam website that managed to advertise on facebook. They were basically offering to sell some fancy air fryer for 20 bucks. Its normal price? 180 or so. Probably gleefully harvesting credit card numbers as fast as people eager for a good deal could offer them up. Which would explain why I had to go find the product elsewhere just to find reviews on it as this site has been up and running for all of under two weeks.

    The interior would be about 9.8 inches or 24.8 centimeters to a side if it's cubic.
