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 or check our website at www.star-k.org. Please note that when the Holiday and Sabbath coincide, the Sabbath laws prevail. See your owner's manual for instructions on operating 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, 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.


  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.


  6. For the above electric ranges, after return from a power failure, the cook tops will return on.


  7. For the above gas ranges, the cooktops will remain on during a power failure.


OVENS:

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


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


  3. 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.


  4. 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 the request and implementation). Some models have timed bake in the Sabbath mode. (Only models that have timed bake in the regular mode will have 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.


  5. After recovery from a power failure, the oven will return off in the Sabbath mode and the warming drawer will return off.


  6. The warming drawer must be set before entering the Sabbath mode. Once the Sabbath mode is entered, the warming drawer will remain at the entry temperature
