Bosch Warming Drawers
Please be aware that there are restrictions in the use of ovens and stoves on the Sabbath and Holidays. If you are unfamiliar with the laws of keeping food warm on the Sabbath or cooking on the Holidays, please call your Rabbi. Please note that when the Holiday and Sabbath coincide, the Sabbath laws prevail. Before first use of a new oven be sure to wash the racks and interior of the oven thoroughly with warm water and soap to remove any coating oil.
1. The warming drawer temperature may not be initiated, adjusted or turned off on the Sabbath or the Holidays.On the Sabbath, in lieu of a blech, the drawer controls, which will become visible when the drawer is opened, should be covered. (A piece of masking tape or a piece of tin foil can be used.)
2. Food should be placed in the warming drawer before the Sabbath begins, as in a regular oven, since none may be placed in the drawer during the Sabbath.
3. On the Sabbath, the drawer may only be opened once, all the food removed and then closed. On the Holidays, the drawer may be opened/closed at any time as often as desired.
4. Warming drawers will run during the sabbath for 74 hours at the medium temperature setting (165°F)5. On the Sabbath, the drawer may only be opened once, all the food removed and then closed. On the Holidays, the drawer may be opened/closed at any time as often as desired. When the timer is used (max 5 hours), the drawer may be opened/closed at will once until the timer shuts off. When the timer is finished, an “H” will show in the display until the drawer cools (~20 minutes). Opening the drawer during this period could cause the drawer to cool and the “H” to be removed from the display.
6. If the power fails when the warming drawer is ON, when the power returns, the warming drawer comes back “Off” in regular non-Sabbath mode. The drawer, however, can be opened.
