Dacor Electric Cooktop

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

Dacor Electric Cooktop
CER 304, 365
CERB 365

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, electric heat may not be initiated, adjusted or turned off.

  2. On the Sabbath a "blech" should be used. The manufacturer does not recommend putting a "blech" on the glass surface. Instead, just the controls should be covered.

  3. On Yom Tov, electric heat may not be initiated. However, for cooking requirements, once on, the temperature may be raised when the ribbon heating element cycles to full glow. Lowering the temperature is permitted at any time if required for food preparation. (Practice adjustments on the electric cooktops before Yom Tov.)

  4. If a power failure occurs, the cooktop will recover to the set temperature when the power returns.

  5. The glass electric cooktop cannot be kashered for Passover. For the rest of the year, be sure to wipe the cooking surface clean between meat and dairy use.
