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. See your owner's manual for instructions on how to operate the Sabbath mode. 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.

COOKTOPS:

  1. On the Sabbath, a gas flame or electric heat may not be initiated, adjusted or turned off.

  2. On the Sabbath, a "blech" should be used to cover the flame in addition to covering the controls of the cooktop. For the gas burners and coiled electric burners use a standard blech. The manufacturer does not recommend putting a blech on the glass electric cooktop surface. Instead, just the controls should be covered.

  3. On the Holidays, a gas flame or electric heat may not be initiated or turned completely off. For gas cooktops with coils, raise and lower the temperature as required for cooking. For electric cooktops, raising the temperature is not permitted because there is no indication when power is on to the heating elements. Lowering the temperature is permitted when necessary for food preparation. However, for glasstop stoves, once on, the temperature may be raised when the ribbon heating element cycles to full glow. Lowering the temperature is permitted at any time if required for food preparation. (Practice adjustments on the electric cooktops before Yom Tov.)

  4. During a power failure, gas cooktops will remain on. Some electric cooktops will recover to the set temperature when the power returns, while others will stay off. See table above for specific models.

  5. The glass electric cooktops cannot be kashered for Passover. For the rest of the year, be sure to wipe the cooking surface clean between meat and dairy use.

OVENS:

  1. The oven temperature may not be initiated, adjusted or turned off on the Sabbath.

  2. On the Sabbath, in lieu of a blech, the oven controls should be covered. (Be careful not to cover vent openings.)

  3. All food should be placed in the oven before the Sabbath begins, since none may be placed in the oven during the Sabbath.

  4. On the Sabbath, the oven door may only be opened once, all the food removed and then closed. On the Holidays, the oven door may be opened/closed at any time as often as desired.

  5. On the Holidays, the temperature may be adjusted (but not initiated or turned off) at any time following the instructions in the owner’s manual (because there is a delay between request and implementation).

  6. These ovens have a timed bake in the Sabbath mode. This feature can only be initiated before the Sabbath/Holiday. Once timed bake goes off, the oven cannot be used again for that Sabbath/Holiday.

  7. After recovery from a power failure, the ovens of the ranges will remain off. They will remain in the Sabbath mode, however, there will be no cooking capability.

WARMING DRAWERS:

  1. The warming drawer temperature may not be initiated, adjusted or turned off on the Sabbath or the Holidays.

  2. On the Sabbath, in lieu of a blech, the drawer controls should be covered. (Be careful not to cover vent openings.)

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. If the power fails when the warming drawer is ON, when the power returns, the drawer will return to its previous ON setting.
