Thermador Warming Drawers

Thermador Warming Drawers
The following models may be used on the Jewish Sabbath or the Jewish Holidays (Yom Tov) in accordance with the instructions below:

Thermador Warming Drawers
27” Warming Drawers WD27ES WD27JS
30” Warming Drawers WD30ES WD30JP WD30EP WD30JS

Please be aware that there are restrictions in the use of warming drawers 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.The warming drawer temperature will run at a medium temperature (165 F) for 74 hours in the Sabbath Mode.

2. The drawer temperature may not be initiated, adjusted or turned off on the Sabbath or the Holidays.

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

4. Food should be placed in the warming drawer before the Sabbath begins, as in a regular oven, since none may be placed in the drawer during the Sabbath.

5. On the Sabbath, the drawer may only be opened once, all the food removed and then closed. On the Holidays, the drawer may be opened/closed at any time as often as desired. When the timer is used (max 5 hours), the drawer may be opened/closed at will once until the timer shuts off. When the timer is finished, an “H” will show in the display until the drawer cools (~20 minutes). Opening the drawer during this period could cause the drawer to cool and the “H” to be removed from the display.

6. The warming drawer will run for 74 hours (or until turned off)at medium temperature in the Sabbath mode.

7. After a power failure, the units will return in an “off” state. If the drawer is still warm, an “H” will show in the display until the drawer cools.
