Using ceramic dishes bought at yardsale

Question:

Shalom from Jerusalem…
I bought some used ceramic kitchen ware at Emuna bazaar this morning…pitchers pottery serving plates….what can I do to be able to use them….do I need to kasher them and can I use them at all?

Answer:

Pitchers and other things that are not used with hot foods are alright, but plates etc.that are used with hot foods do have an issue to be used for foods, because ceramic pottery can not be kashered. They can be used for other things though.

Best Wishes
