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.

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".
  3. On Yom Tov, a gas flame or electric heat may not be initiated or turned completely off. (For gas cooktops, if the range has been unplugged, a burner may be lit by turning on the gas and lighting from an existing flame. However, the oven may not work when the range is unplugged.) For gas cooktops, raise and lower the temperature as required for cooking. For electric cooktops with coils, raising the temperature is not permitted because there is no indication when power is on to the heating elements. Lowering the temperature is permitted when necessary for food preparation.
  4. During a power failure, gas cooktops will remain on, whereas electric cooktops will recover to the set temperature when the power returns.

OVENS:

  1. If opening the oven door turns on an oven light, the bulb should either be removed before the Sabbath or Holiday or the light should be turned on at the control panel and left on for the entire Sabbath or Holiday.
  2. The oven temperature may not be initiated, adjusted or turned off on the Sabbath.
  3. On the Sabbath, in lieu of a "blech", the oven controls should be covered. (Be careful not to cover vent openings.)
  4. All food should be placed in the oven before the Sabbath begins, since none may be placed in the oven during the Sabbath.
  5. 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.
  6. On the holidays, the temperature of gas may be adjusted (but not initiated or turned off) by listening and watching for the oven flame. When the flame is on the temperature may be raised and lowered when the flame is off.
  7. After recovery from a power failure, all these ovens will return ON to the pre power failure setting. Battery ignition ranges will operate even during a power failure.
  8. These ovens do not have a timed bake feature nor do they have self clean. However, these ranges avoid almost all modern halachic issues because there are no electronic controls or displays.
