When do I set up the Kova TM Warming Tray?
Set up the tray atop the crockpot before Shabbat. The tray serves as the lid.
How do I set it up?
Measure the top opening from the outer edge across to the other outer edge of your crockpot. Then measure the underside of the tray to determine which slot to attach the bumpers.
Note: The bumpers do not have to be directly against the edge of the crockpot, but as close as possible, so the tray will not slide if condensation accumulates on the underside.
How to Use the Kova Warming Tray on Shabbat According to Jewish Law
- Before Shabbat, the Kova must be placed on a slow-cooker containing food.
- According to Jewish law, on Shabbat, place only pre-cooked dry foods on the Kova Warming Tray to warm. Also, the Kova tray may only be placed on a slow-cooker with food inside, never directly on the heating element
- After removing the Kova Warming Tray, you may not place it back on the slow-cooker for the remainder of Shabbat.
What are the dimensions of the tray?
The tray is 26.5″ long x 16.5″ wide x 1″ deep.
How long does it take for the food to warm?
Depending on the heat setting of your crockpot, place the pans of food on top of the tray about 3+ hours before you intend to serve.
When you are ready to serve and access the food (cholent, roast, etc) in your crockpot, as well, remove the pans of food from the tray and remove the tray carefully. Be prepared to dry the underside of the tray — it will be wet.
