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. For the gas burners use a standard "blech". The manufacturer does not recommend putting a "blech" on the glass surface for the electric burners. Instead, just the controls should be covered.

  3. On Yom Tov, an existing gas flame may be raised or lowered for cooking requirements. However, a gas flame may not be initiated or turned completely off. The electric part of the cooktop (if applicable) may not be turned on. However, for cooking requirements, once on, the temperature for the electric part of the cooktop 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 cooktop before Yom Tov.)

  4. During a power failure, gas cooktops will remain on, whereas electric cooktops will recover to the set temperature when the power returns.

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

OVENS:
(For ER30G ER30GI see items 7-13)

  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. 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.
  7. FOR MODELS ER 30G and 30GI ONLY

  8. The oven temperature may not be initiated, adjusted or turned off on the Sabbath.

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

  10. All food should be placed in the oven before the Sabbath begins, since none may be placed in the oven during the Sabbath.

  11. 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.

  12. These ovens do not have a timed bake feature.  However, a standard lamp timer can be used to turn the oven off and on. 

  13. For the Holidays, the oven should be turned on before the Holiday. Once on, the temperature may be adjusted for cooking purposes by following the indicator light. Raise the temperature when the light is on and lower it when it is off. The oven may be shut off when the light is off but then may not be used again on that Holiday.

  14. After recovery from a power failure, these ovens will return ON at the original temperature setting.
