Redemption for Dishwasher Error?

Dear Rabbi Simon,
I have a halachic question:
I have a meat Teflon saucepan that by mistake I washed in a dairy dishwasher.
Shall I toss it or keep it?
Thank you.

Dear Suzy
There is no need to discard your saucepan. I would recommend kashering it by filling it near to the top with water then heating it to a rolling boil. Then carefully pour additional boiling water into it from your kettle until it overflows. Voila, you’re done.
Best wishes
Rabbi Rashi Simon

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.
Rabbi Rashi Simon
