Gas bottle from Bunnings

Post  BanditDave on Thu 05 Jun 2014, 10:19 am

Yesterday I decided it was time to purchase a second gas bottle for the pizza oven.

To purchase an exchange bottle with gas was $59, the cost of a gas refill being $23.

I walked to the back of the store and picked up a brand new (empty) bottle and paid $29 for it.

I took my new bottle to the trade counter and paid $23 to exchange it for a full one.

The Bunnings operator took my brand new bottle and put it behind the desk I presume to return it to stock some time later.

I came home with a full gas bottle for $52 rather than $59.

BTW to purchase a filled bottle from the servo is $87

I get my 9kg bottle refilled for $20, I'm pretty sure my local Bunnings will match that as well

I normally go down to my local camping store to get my 9kg gas bottle refilled. About $20. I've heard some stories of people getting out of date gas bottles from the swap & go mob, then it costs a bomb next time to replace it!
Check the date on your swap & go bottle BD

Thanks Steve for pointing that out.
I have checked both bottles and they are both 2013
I doubt very much if large retailers like Bunnings would sell out of date bottles, especially as they are on-selling from another supplier. I imagine they would be fined if caught.
I've never had anyone check the date on the bottle. Either they don't know how to or are not required to check it.

I understand expired bottles get pressure tested and a new tap fitted.

Anyway, buying a second bottle was cheaper than buying a gas gauge for the first one and now never running out.

BTW, Aldi pizza oven for $219 in October is worth looking out for.

We are just finishing our fourth bottle of gas and have cooked well over 100 dishes including pizza, baked vegies, pies, pasties, bread and all manner of desserts.
We haven't used the oven in the kitchen since the purchase last October.
