• KASHRUS ALERT: Star-K No Longer Certifying GE Appliances, Important Update from Zman Technologies

    Popular oven manufacturer GE will no longer have its Shabbos mode ovens certified under the Star-K as of January 1st. Remain certified under other Hasgachos • Full Story

    Effective January 1, 2022, GE began marketing their Sabbath Mode ovens without STAR-K certification. Certified ovens purchased and delivered prior to January 1, 2022, remain certified. Consumers seeking to purchase cooking appliances compatible with Shabbos and Yom Tov are advised to select models certified by a reliable kashrus organization. Consumers who have questions or concerns can contact GE directly at 1-800-626-2005.

    In addition, Zman Technologies released the following statement about GE certification:

    For the last few years, GE Appliances has been working in full partnership with Zman Technologies and Rabbi Tzvi Ortner to provide the best Shabbos solutions for the Jewish consumer.

    All GE cooking appliances when used with Shabbos Keeper remain certified kosher for use on Shabbos and Yom Tov under the OU, CRC-Hisachdus Harabonim- according to the strictest halacha standards.

    Shabbos Keeper by Zman Technologies uses an Enhanced Shabbos Mode to ensure appliances are strictly kosher for use on Shabbos and Yom Tov.

    Above the standard Sabbath mode requirements, Enhanced Shabbos Mode automates heating elements and flames to ensure user activity has no effect on the appliance or it’s functions. This allows the oven door to be opened and closed as many times as necessary throughout Shabbos and Yom Tov – even while the oven is running. This is a first time breakthrough achievement that was never possible until today.

    Also unlike standard Sabbath modes, Enhanced Shabbos Mode completely controls door switches (including safety shutoff), lights, buttons and sensors so that no electronics are affected by the user.

    Of course Shabbos Keeper also syncs with the Jewish calendar to automate Shabbos mode each week and every Yom Tov- for the next 30 years. This ensures there are no mistakes and you never forget to put your appliance in Shabbos mode.

    Each of our certified appliances undergo thorough quality control procedures, field testing, and kosher lab-testing at GE Appliance Park in Louisville KY to ensure strict halachic compliance. It is our high kashrus standards that earned Shabbos Keeper certification from three top-tier kosher agencies and approval from many other community rabbonim.

    Shabbos Keeper now supports more than 30 GE ovens. Over the next few months, look out for additional support across the full GE brand lineup including GE, Profile, Café and Monogram. These will include wall ovens, slide in, pro-ranges and more.

    Zman Technologies will continue to provide you with the highest levels of Shabbos compliance in the appliance industry.
