I cooked soup using a dairy pot. I just realized that the consume that I used chicken flavor is meat. What do I do? Do I have to throw out the pot?
You don’t have to throw out the pot, but you do have to kasher it with the heat of a kli rishon.
This is the way to do it.
- The pot has to be scrubbed so it is totally clean of any dirt, grime or rust, including the pot, handle and any joints.
- Then it can either be inserted into another pot that is boiling. Alternatively the pot itself can be filled until the top with water and brought to a rolling boil. Then something hot should be stuck inside it to cause the water to flow over the sides of the pot, (you can also shake the pot in a way the water goes over the sides to kasher the top of the walls). Note: this option will not work for the handles of the pot, as the water won’t get there. For the handles, you will need to pour bioling water over them.
- After this the pot should be rinsed in cold water.
