GE Adds ‘Sabbath Mode’ to Hundreds of Appliances

It’s not often a press release from a mega-corporation like GE touts gefilte fish, challah, brisket, noodle kugel and latkes. But just in time for Hanukkah, the company decided to trumpet the “Sabbath Mode” feature it now offers on over 264 “GE wall ovens, smooth-top electric slide-in and smooth-top electric drop-in ranges, as well as on the majority of its free-standing ranges.”

As the release explains, “Sabbath Mode” basically means an appliance will override the 12-hour shut-off safety device that equips “most modern ranges.” The oven “will not shut off automatically, making it possible to keep cooked foods warm on the Sabbath or use the range over religious holidays for cooking and warming food.”
