Companies have chosen the name "Sabbath Mode" , and we are concerned from a halachic point of view that there may be some misunderstanding as to the proper use of these ovens on Shabbos. We would therefore like to make some clarifications. 1. No adjustment to the temperature is permitted on Shabbos even in the Sabbath Mode. 2. All food must be fully cooked and placed in the oven before Shabbos. read more
Consumers should be aware that some appliance companies are advertising "Sabbath Mode" features and are not certified by STAR-K or any other reputable rabbinical group. To be sure that all halachic concerns have been duly addressed, you can check model numbers from specific manufacturers on the STAR-K website or call our office at 410-484-4110.
If a self-clean feature is important to you, please be aware that many new oven models no longer have this feature.
