A meat pot that was used to cook dairy


One may not use a pot to cook dairy, once it has been used to cook meat. The reverse is also true.

If one accidentally cooked meat in an open dairy pot, or dairy in an open meat pot, but the pot is clean and has not been used in 24 hours, and the food cooked in the pot is not sharp-tasting, then the food is permitted, but the pot may still require kashering.

Please ask a competent rabbi for specific cases. Note, as well, that the law may change if there is a lid on the pot.

(Shulchan Aruch Yoreh Deah 93:1; Shach Yoreh Deah 93:4)

Have a great day,
