How Long Does LPG Last for Cooking At Home

Cooking gas can be use at home for heating and burning. It is a cleaner fuel and more preferable to wood and charcoal. But just how long does a typical LPG cylinder last before needing a refill?

Really, the fact is that, how long cooking gas last depends on several factors, including the size of the cylinder, the type of cooking appliances used (single burner or double), the frequency of cooking, and the cooking habits of the household. Here's a breakdown of what to consider:

1. Cylinder Size: LPG cylinders come in various sizes, ranging from larges ones used for restaurants, hotels for cooking to smaller ones for household domestic use. The most common sizes for household use are typically 3kg, 6kg, 12.5kg, and 50kg cylinders. The larger the cylinder, the longer it will last.

2. Cooking Appliances: The type of cooking appliances used can affect how quickly LPG is consumed. For example, gas stoves with multiple burners or large ovens will consume more gas compared to smaller, more efficient appliances like single-burner stoves or portable cooktops.

3. Frequency of Cooking: How often you cook meals at home will also impact how long an LPG cylinder lasts. A household that cooks every day will obviously use up gas more quickly than one that cooks only occasionally or eats out frequently. 

4. Cooking Habits: The way you cook can also affect gas consumption. Cooking dishes that require long cooking times or use high heat settings will consume more gas than dishes that cook quickly or at lower temperatures. Additionally, using lids on pots and pans, cooking with the correct burner size, and turning off the gas when not in use can help conserve LPG. If you are one that love beans, expect high usage on gas.

On average, a full 6kg LPG cylinder used for cooking in a typical household can last anywhere from 2 weeks, and a 12.5kg may last maybe up to 6 weeks, depending on the factors mentioned above. A 25kg cylinder might last a bit longer, while a 50kg cylinder can last several months, depending on usage.

It's important to keep track of LPG usage and monitor the level of gas remaining in the cylinder to avoid running out unexpectedly. Some households choose to have a spare cylinder on hand to switch out when one runs empty, ensuring uninterrupted cooking. In the end, how long cooking gas could last for you solely depends on how much you use it.
