Dairy Onions

I cut up onions with a dairy knife and put them into dough which I then placed in a Challah Pan. It was baked in a dairy oven. Are my Challah pans now Dairy? thanks

Answer:

The challah pans would not be milky if there if the volume of the challah is sixty times more than the volume of the mily knife used to cut the onion. This is most probably the case. It is worth adding that some “milky knives” are not actually milky, but only “bechezkas milky.” A true “milky knife” is one that was used to cut hot milky foods such as pizza.
