How Much Gas Does Ooni Use? (Explained) 2022

Last updated on October 26th, 2022 at 05:21 pm

Fuel is the energy source, and the correct quantity of fuel is significant for working correctly.

Without the required quantity of fuel, the machine may not function maximally even if it does not have a problem.

How much fuel a machine uses depends on the workload and type of the machine.

On average, the gas burner of an Ooni consumes about 360g of propane/hour. However, depending on the size and type of Ooni, the quantity of propane an Ooni uses hinges on the cooking process. Also, the amount of fuel used is dependent on the quantity of cooking done.

How Much Gas Does Ooni Koda Use?

The type of Ooni Koda determines the quantity of gas it uses; there are two Ooni Koda types: Ooni Koda 12 and Ooni Koda 16.

Ooni Koda 12 uses about 0.28 kg/hr gas, while Ooni Koda 16 uses up to 0.45 kg/hr. So, both types of Ooni Koda do not consume much gas while cooking.

More so, the quantity of cooking done will determine how much gas any Ooni Koda will consume.

For instance, the quantity of gas the Ooni Koda machine consumes when making 20 pizzas differ from that consumed when making 5 pizzas.

This is because of the differences in the time spent in the cooking process. So to say, the time you take in cooking also determines the amount of gas used in the cooking process.

Interestingly, even with the advancement in the Ooni Koda 16, it still consumes relatively little gas when cooking, which means you can use a small gas cylinder with the Ooni Koda without worrying about its size.

Another reason why you can comfortably use Ooni Koda 16 with a small cylinder is because of its gas conversion capabilities that give it an edge over the Ooni Koda 12.

Even the Ooni Koda 12 uses less gas in the cooking process. Therefore you can use a small cylinder attached to it to cook, and it will last long.

What Kind Of Propane Tank Does Ooni Use?

The type of Ooni determines the kind of propane tank used because different machines have their specifications, especially concerning external features to be attached.

While some Ooni machines require big-sized propane tanks, others are compatible even with small tanks, while for some, both small and big-sized propane tanks can be used without affecting the machine’s functioning.

The thing with propane tanks used with an Ooni is that they are usually heavy; hence you can not move them around.

When you want to use the tank in a portable way, it’s best to attach an adapter while connecting it to a regulator.

The adapter aids easy access to the machine by shortening the distance. You can use any propane tank for an Ooni, provided it is compatible with the particular one available. Considerably,

An Ooni Koda can be used with about 20-pound large-sized propane tanks, although any propane tank capable of containing the required quantity of gas for use is a good idea for connecting with an Ooni Koda.

Basically, for all the Ooni’s, a propane tank to be used can contain the quantity of gas for usage.

The main reason for choosing various propane tanks is to reduce the frequency of refilling the tank.

If a small tank is connected to an Ooni, the gas would be used up and required to be refilled within a short period.

Once filled, the refilling process takes a little while for a sizable or bigger-sized propane tank. The only disadvantage of using a big-sized propane tank is mobility, but a solution to this is adapters.

Also, another thing to consider in propane tanks is going specifically for the propane tank required for a particular Ooni machine. For example, an Ooni Koda 16 converts gasses for its use.

That is, an Ooni Koda can convert a natural gas for its usage too. Hence there is no problem of specificity when getting a propane tank for Ooni Koda 16.

The only thing required is to get a tank sizable enough to contain the gas required for the cooking process and one that will take a longer time to refill.

An essential factor to consider is the regulator of an adapter for the attachment to the propane tank.

Using the right regulator for an Ooni to work appropriately, it is significant to consider the type of regulator to use for an adapter for a propane tank.

Getting the specific one is much better as so many complications are avoided.


The quantity of propane that an Ooni uses varies, depending on the type of Ooni you have. Different types consume propane differently, but Ooni machines do not usually use much propane in the cooking process.
