Sabbath Alert: Wolf Cooktops

January 27, 2023 from Star-K:

It has come to STAR-K's attention that there is a potential halachic issue with some Wolf cooktops that have the auto-ignite feature. 

When a burner is on, opening or closing a drawer or cabinet door near the cooktop might extinguish the burner flame, which will automatically reignite.

The manufacturer has informed us that this poses no safety concern, as the flame comes back right away. However, this does present a halachic concern for Shabbos and Yom Tov.

STAR-K advises consumers to conduct the following test on a weekday:

f testing indicates that opening or shutting a particular door or drawer does cause the burner to extinguish and reignite, that drawer should not be opened or closed on Shabbos and Yom Tov when the burner is on. It is recommended that these doors or drawers be taped down before Shabbos and Yom Tov if the burner will be left on.

"Vegan" Labeled Products May Contain Dairy

January 23, 2023 from the AKC Kosher Certification) (Kosher Atlanta):

In general, one cannot assume that products labeled as “vegan” or "non-dairy" are dairy-free or DE by kosher standards. These products may contain actual dairy (typically found in flavoring) that would exceed the kosher limits of DE. One example of this is that although Bruster’s Ice Cream flavors may be labeled as vegan, not all of them can be assumed to be Kosher Pareve or Kosher Dairy Equipment (DE). Only the items listed as DE or Pareve on our kosher letters have been verified as not containing any dairy.
