Question:

Do I need to tovel an electric hot pot that is used for hot water that is owned and used by a goy? I am staying in a summer rental apartment in Switzerland that has an electric hotpot and I would like to use it for boiling water for hot drinks.

Answer:

There is no need to tovel it, since it is owned by the goy. Even though right now that you rented it you have the exclusive right to it’s use, it is still essentially owned by the goy, so it doesn’t need tevila.
