How You Can Manage 5Kg Cooking Gas For Almost 5 months


A gas cylinder is a pressure vessel for the storage and containment of gases at above atmospheric pressure. High-pressure gas cylinders are also called bottles.


In this article, I will explain how you can manage 5kg cooking gas for almost five months without refilling another one. I believe it is necessary to let you know the principle behind cooking gas before explaining how you can manage 5kg cooking gas.

Anytime you want to cook and you start using your cooking gas, some of the pressure in the gas cylinder is released. When you turn the knob of your gas cylinder, the intake valve opens and gas flows through a tube known as a venturi tube ( a pipe that narrows in the middle). Gas enters through one of the wide ends, the pressure increases as the gas passes through the narrowed section. As the gas moves into a small air hole where the pipe widens, the pressure releases, sucking oxygen into the air hole. The oxygen then mixes with the gas and make it combustible. The oxygen-gas mixture then flows into the burner and blue fame comes out in readiness to boil your food.

Many people do make mistakes when using a cooking gas cylinder. Most people have the mindset that the more they increase the rate at which the gas comes out from the cooking gas cylinder, the faster the food on the burner will be ready which is not so.

If you want to manage your 5kg cooking gas for almost five months, as soon as the water in your cooking pot reaches its boiling point, reduce the rate at which gas comes out from the cooking gas cylinder to the lowest level. This is because the boiling point of water will not exceed 212 °F or 100 °C even if you increase the knob of your cooking gas cylinder to the highest level. It would rather waste the gas.

Finally, I will advise you to always reduce the rate at which gas comes out from your cooking gas cylinder once the water reaches its boiling point, your food will be ready within a short period. I tried this simple logic with 5kg gaswhen I was doing my internship. It worked for me because I refilled another gas after almost 5 months. Go and try it and thank me later.
