The plot thickens, on my non 6 quart pot incident

Recently I ordered a cast iron pot from Amazon, advertised as 6 quarts, and says so on the box.

And then I measured it. I was very unhappy to find that it was less than 5 quarts.

There's another pot of the same style, on Amazon, advertised as 8 quarts.

Today I found on this website, these exact pots*. Volumes are not given, only measurements.

*The model numbers match, so these are the pots of which I speak.

The small one is 10 inches in diameter, 4 1/2 inches high. That would be less than 5 quarts.

The large one is 12 inches in diameter, also 4 1/2 inches high. That would be less than 7 quarts.

So the one advertised as 8 quarts, is also wrong.

It wasn't a bad quality pot; I sent it back based on principle. Not to mention Lodge is cheaper.
