What is a regulator and which one do you need?
Regulators can be a wee bit confusing but it's easy when you now how! This article will help you to work out which one you need.
A regulator does exactly what it says on the tin. It regulates gas flow from your gas tank in to your gas-fired product. If there was no regulator, gas would flow from the propane tank super quickly and you'd have to buy lots of tanks to get your oven fired up.
There are two questions you need to answer before you choose the right model and regulator for you:
- what mBar pressure is common in my area?
- what fitting is on the top of gas bottles in my area?
Regulators are classified into different groups depending on the millibar (mBar) of pressure which they will release when in use. We do not provide gas regulators for our Ooni gas products because the sale of such products are regulated according to the guidelines of SPRING Singapore. Instead, you will easily be able to buy the approved gas regulator and hose from any licensed LPG gas vendor locally
As well as regulating to different mBar pressures, regulators can also be a different shape and size. In other words, not all 30mBar regulators are the same and neither are 28mBar, 27mBar or 50mBar.
Different regions and countries use different gas bottles with different connections. The ovens that we stock are specific for the regulators supplied by LPG gas vendors in Singapore. Ovens bought outside of Singapore or from sellers who do not obtain their supplies from the Official Ooni Distributor for Singapore may not work properly or worse, not work at all
Please note that our gas products themselves are also region specific and so changing the regulator will not make a product function in a region which it has not been designed for use in. For example, putting a US regulator on a UK Ooni Koda model will not make this model suitable for use in the US.
Listed below are the regulators which are commonly used worldwide and the countries which they are compatible for use in. If your country is seen for more than one of these millibars, please check in with your local hardware or appliance store in order to determine which gas tanks are available to you in your area.
28mb - US, CA, CH, CY, CZ, ES, FR, GR, IE, IT, LT, LU, LV, PT, SK, SI.

You may know a regulator as a kaasusäädin (FI), gasregelaar (NL) or regulátor plynu (SK). If you have ordered one of our awesome 30mb gas products, you will need to source a 30mb regulator to connect these gas products to your gas tank and get cooking!
