Milky Pan, Meaty Lid

You are here:
< Back

Dear Rabbi Simon
I’d appreciate your help please. I heated up some parev pasta sauce in a milk saucepan although one which has never had milk it. Without thinking, unfortunately I used a meat saucepan lid.  As far as we recall we never have used meat in the saucepan that the lid should be used for.
Can the lid and saucepan still be used or do we need to discard both?
Many thanks
Martin

Dear Martin
The utensils and the pasta sauce are all fine. Since the saucepan and lid were clean and not used recently for meat or milk (if at all) there is no transference of ta’am between the two.  יאכלו ענוים וישבעו

Ask the Rabbi: Quinoa on Pesach
Dear Rabbi Simon,
Where do you stand on quinoa (and the kitniyot ban) for Pesach?
Many thanks,

Dear Tzippy,
In line with other American authorities, I am in favour of quinoa. Although I reject completely the voices (mostly from Israel) seeking to abolish the ban on kitniyot entirely, IMO we do not need to include in the prohibition pseudo-grains that were unknown in the Old World until modern times. Best to buy with a Pesach hechsher though, to be free of any possible wheat contamination.
