Format from ionic-datetime keeps changing when selecting a new date

Hi all!

I’ve been struggling with the ionic-datetime component today.

So I have this piece of code in my .html:

 <ion-item class="container-date" lines="none">
    <ion-datetime displayFormat="DD/MM/YYYY" pickerFormat="DD/MM/YYYY" [(ngModel)]="date" placeholder="{{ date }}"></ion-datetime>
  </ion-item>

And the following in my .ts file:

date = moment(new Date()).format("DD/MM/YYYY");

I’ve also tried this; same result though:

date = new Date().toISOString();

So the format before I select a new date is as follows:
29/03/2021
When I select a new date (let’s say 30/03/2021) it changes to “2021-03-30” and when I try changing it again it changes to “2021-03-31T00:00:00+02:00”.

I have no clue what to do anymore. Thanks in advance!

FYI, I want to sort date from my local json file using the datetime component. And I need a specific format for that to work.
