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.

  1. The oven temperature may not be initiated, adjusted or turned off on the Sabbath OR the Holidays.
  2. On the Sabbath, in lieu of a "blech", the oven controls should be covered. (Be careful not to cover vent openings.)
  3. All food should be placed in the oven before the Sabbath begins, since none may be placed in the oven during the Sabbath.
  4. 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.
  5. These ovens have a timed bake feature. 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. Timed bake will hold the requested temperature for the requested time. At the end of the requested time, the oven beeps three times, holds 150 degrees for another two hours and then shuts off completely. While the oven is operating, the oven door may be opened once, all the food taken out and then closed. At the end of the two hour hold period, the oven may be opened/closed at will. This applies only to the Sabbath, whereas on the Holidays, the oven door may be opened/closed at any time as often as desired.
  6. After recovery from a power failure, all these ovens will stay off.

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. See your owner's manual for instructions on how to operate 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.

  1. The oven temperature may not be initiated, adjusted or turned off on the Sabbath.
  2. On the Sabbath, in lieu of a blech, the oven controls should be covered. (Be careful not to cover vent openings.)
  3. All food should be placed in the oven before the Sabbath begins, since none may be placed in the oven during the Sabbath.

At the end of the requested time, the oven beeps three times, holds 150 degrees for another two hours and then shuts off completely. While the oven is operating, the oven door may be opened once, all the food taken out and then closed. At the end of the two hour hold period, the oven may be opened/closed at will.
