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.

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. However, a tone has to be cancelled when the time is up, so this feature is not useable for the Sabbath or the Holidays.

6. For the Holidays, the oven should be turned on before the Holiday. Once on, the temperature may be adjusted for cooking purposes by following the indicator light. Raise the temperature when the light is on and lower it when it is off. The oven may be shut off when the light is off but then may not be used again on that Holiday.

7. After recovery from a power failure, all the above oven models with an asterisk will return to the temperature setting that existed before the power outage.

8. Do not use the convection mode on Sabbath or Holidays. Please note that this applies only to the above models without an asterisk.

9.The oven light must be turned on from the control panel before Sabbath or Holidays, or the bulb must be unscrewed. Please note that this applies only to the above models without an asterisk.
