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.
2. On the Sabbath, in lieu of a "blech", the oven controls should be covered. (Be careful not to cover vent openings.)
3. 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.
4. On the Sabbath, the door may only be opened once, all the food removed and then closed. On the Holidays, the door may be opened/closed at any time as often as desired.
5. On the Holidays, as required for food preparation, the temperature may be raised when the indicator light is on and lowered when it is off. The temperature may not be initiated, but it may be turned off when the indicator light is off. Once off, it may not be turned on again.
6. These warming drawers do not have a timed bake feature.
7. After recovery from a power failure, the warming drawers will return to the temperature setting that existed before the power outage.
