To set up your Ooni Koda 12, follow the steps below:
Unpack your oven, unfold the legs and insert the stone.
Place your oven on an outdoor surface made of stone, metal, or wood. Tables made of glass or plastic are not recommended. Do not use your oven indoors.
Allow your oven 3 feet/1 meter of clearance on all sides and 9 feet/3 meters above.
Connect the regulator and hose to your propane tank (this will either be a push-on fitting or a threaded fitting depending on your region).
Open up the flow of gas by turning the valve on your propane tank.
Find the control knob on the back of the oven. Push in and slowly turn the control knob counterclockwise until you hear a click and the burner ignites.
Continue to push in the control knob for 5 seconds after ignition, then release.
Gather your pizza peel, thermometer, dough, and toppings - your oven will be fully preheated in 15 minutes!
Your Ooni Koda 12 should run quietly when lit. If you hear a roaring noise from the gas burner, switch the gas off for 5 minutes, then re-light.
When using your oven for the first time, let it run at a high temperature (750°F/400°C) for 30 minutes, then cool it down completely to season the oven and ready it for use.
Don't forget to turn off the flow of gas on your propane tank when you're finished cooking!
