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.
1. On the Sabbath, a flame 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. For the gas burners use a standard blech. (Cover the knobs with a separate piece of foil. Putting the knobs under the blech may damage them.) The manufacturer sells a cast iron griddle, model number PGD for side burners of outdoor grills, that can be used as a blech. The controls should still be covered.
3. On the Holidays, an existing flame may be raised or lowered for cooking requirements. However, a flame may not be initiated or turned completely off.
4. During a power failure, grills will remain on.
