Question:

I accidentally put sachlav a milk drink into a meat microwave and it started to foam around 30-45 seconds into the microwave. The foam got on the microwave circle plate. Do I need to kosher the microwave? And if so how? Also would the din be different if the drink wasn’t hot enough to the touch that I would have to remove my finger from it?

Answer:

The microwave has to be kashered. Wipe out all the surfaces in the microwave, including the plate, and make sure they are all clean. Then wait 24 hrs. and put a bowl of water inside it and boil it until the microwave fills with steam.
