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 oven temperature may not be initiated, adjusted or turned off on the Sabbath or Jewish Holidays.

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. These ovens have a timed bake feature. Once the timed bake mode is complete the timer beeps three times and then the temperature automatically drops to 150 F and goes into a “HOLD” mode for two hours. The oven emits a soft beep every minute during this two hour period to remind the consumer that the oven is in the “HOLD” mode. At the end of the two hour “HOLD” mode period the oven automatically shuts off.

6. After recovery from a power failure, all the above oven models will return “Off” in Sabbath Mode.
