Frequently asked questions about the usage and operation of your Ooni gas fired pizza oven. If you have a question which has not been answered below, please get in touch with us and we will be happy to help!
How do I setup Ooni Koda?
All Ooni pizza ovens are portable and do not require any installation. You simply need to open the oven legs, connect the gas cylinder to the oven and you will be ready to cook in minutes!
What kind of fuel/gas tank do I need?
All Ooni gas fired ovens utilize standard LPG cooking gas. Any size cylinder can be used with Ooni ovens, using a standard LPG hose and regulator (included with all gas ovens and gas burners). Ooni ovens are not compatible with piped gas or CNG.
The LPG cylinder regulator must be rated for 30mbar / 300mmWC pressure. This is a standard pressure for domestic cylinders across India. Commercial regulators rated for higher pressures will damage your oven.
What is a regulator and which one do I need?
A regulator is clamped on top of the LPG cylinder and is connected to the gas fired oven using an LPG hose.
LPG cylinders from HP Gas, Bharat Gas and Indane use the same regulator (included with all gas ovens and gas burners).
Where can I get an LPG cylinder from?
LPG cylinder booking can be done online on the below portals. A local distributor search is available as well. 5kg cylinders are easily available for purchase by showing your Aadhar card. A 5kg cylinder will be able to run your oven for 8-15 hours (depending on your oven size) and can be refilled as desired.
How do I connect my LPG cylinder to my gas-fired oven?
You simply need to fit the LPG hose over the gas inlet of your oven and secure it with the hose clamp as shown below.
Tip: Soak the ends of the hose in hot water for 2 minutes. This will soften the rubber and make it slightly easier to slide onto the inlet of the oven and gas regulator. Please note that the hose and inlet will require a little force to slide on as they are supposed to be a snug fit by design.

How do I light my Ooni gas fired pizza oven?
Once you have connected the LPG regulator and hose, open the valve on your gas cylinder.
Push in and slowly turn the temperature control knob of your oven counterclockwise until you hear a click and the burner ignites.
If the burner does not ignite, wait 5 minutes for any gas to dissipate and then repeat the step above. It is important to turn the knob slowly. It is normal for it to take a few attempts for the burner to ignite.
Continue to push in the temperature control knob for 30 seconds after ignition and then release.
What to do if flames go out?
Ooni gas ovens and burners has a Flame Safe Device (FSD) built in. This means that if the flame is extinguished while the gas supply is on, the FSD will automatically cut off the gas supply to your oven/gas burner safely.
If you notice that the flames have gone out, turn off the gas supply and detach your oven/gas burner from the LPG tank. Leave for 5 minutes before re-lighting.
How do I extinguish or turn off my oven?
Simply rotate the temperature control knob clockwise till you reach the maximum flame mark. Then push the knob in and rotate it clockwise further to completely shut off the gas flow.
Remember to always shut off the valve on the gas regulator as well.
