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.


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 loosely with a separate piece of foil. Air intake is above the knobs at the top of the control panel.)

  3. Cabinets holding gas rangetops 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 opened and closed slowly near the "blech".

  4. 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.

    These models have a separate flame in the middle for simmer only and an outer flame for higher adjustments. 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.


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

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

OVENS:

  1. On the Sabbath 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.

  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. 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 oven ready light. One may raise the temperature when the light is on and lower it when the light is off. The oven may be shut off when the light is off but then may not be used again on that Holiday. Be careful not to put on the convection fan because it will cycle on/off with the door opening/closing.

  6. The oven light operates by a switch on the outside of the oven. These lights should be turned on or off before the Sabbath or Holidays and left that way until after the Sabbath or Holidays.

  7. These ovens do not have a timed bake feature.

  8. After recovery from a power failure, all these ovens will return to the temperature setting that existed before the power outage.
