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

DF30
DF36
DF48
DF60

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 operating the limited 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.

RANGETOPS:

  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. For the gas burners use a standard "blech". (Cover the knobs with a separate piece of foil. Putting the knobs under the "blech" may damage them.)

  3. On the Holidays, an existing flame may be raised or lowered for cooking requirements. However, a flame may not be initiated or turned completely off. The installed griddle feature has an indicator light that cycles. One may raise the temperature when the light is on and lower it when the light is off.

    The gas burners have a separate flame for Hi to Lo simmer levels and an outer flame for higher temperatures. The two flames will not burn simultaneously. Therefore, on Yom Tov the setting must either be left in the simmer or in the higher outer flame. The existing higher outer flame may be raised or lowered for cooking requirements.


  4. During a power failure, gas cooktops will remain on. (The griddle will go off, but will return with power.)

  5. Charbroiler option should not be used during Sabbath or Holidays.

OVENS:

  1. On both the Sabbath and the Holidays the oven temperature may not be initiated, adjusted or turned off.

  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. On the Holidays, the temperature may be adjusted (but not initiated or turned off) at any time following the instructions in the owner's manual (because there is a delay between the request and implementation). This applies only to models manufactured after May 2007. They will remain on indefinitely, eliminate any light concerns, and have a timed bake option which must be initiated before the Sabbath or Holiday. Once the timed bake feature goes off, the oven cannot be used again for that Sabbath or Holiday.

  6. After recovery from a power failure, these ovens will stay off.
