Separate grates?


A stove burner does not need separate grates for meat and dairy use. Any liquid that falls on the grate dries out when the burner is on. Any absorption in the grate is not a factor, because the grate is dry and the pot it touches is dry, and so the absorption in the grate would not transfer to the pot.

[Of course, one would need to remove any actual meat or dairy substance sitting on the grate before introducing a pot of the opposite kind.]

(Rav Moshe Feinstein, Igrot Moshe Yoreh Deah 1:40)

Have a great day,
