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, a flame 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.

  3. Cabinets holding gas cooktops should be vented properly. This should minimize the possibility of the flame blowing out under the "blech" when drawers are closed. Even then, drawers and doors should be moved slowly near the "blech".

  4. On Yom Tov, an existing flame may be raised or lowered for cooking requirements. However, a flame may not be initiated or turned completely off on Yom Tov.

    * When adjusting the flame of these models on Yom Tov, the front burners must either be left in the simmer setting or out of the simmer setting, since transitioning between simmer and non-simmer causes an indicator light to go on/off.

  5. These gas cooktops will remain on during a power failure.
