Question:

This is in followup to question 52170 in which I was asked a followup question by email to clarify my case. I sent the reply by email but it’s a “no-reply” address so I’m not sure if you will see that response.
You asked me:
“To get your question clear, you baked it in the Tupperware container, or you placed it inside it after it was baked?”
My clarification:
I baked chicken wings in the oven today, then I took them out of the oven after they were baked and placed them into the a Tupperware container. (Since they were fresh out of the oven, I only let them sit to cool them off for a minute or two before placing them in the Tupperware, so the wings were still hot/warm).
Previously, sometime last week, and in the past, I had cooked macaroni and cheese in a dairy pot on the stove, then taken the cooked food out of the pot, pouring it into this same Tupperware I’m referencing (so the macaroni and cheese was still hot at the time I ate it out of this Tupperware container last Wednesday or Thursday).

So I would like to find out what is the status of the Tupperware and also of these wings.

Hope this explains things well
Thanks

Answer:

You did a great job at explaining your question!

Assuming that the container was clean, the wings themselves are permitted since the container was not used within the last 24 hours. The container should be kashered. Wait 24 hours from when it was used, clean it well, and then kasher it in a pot of boiling water, then wash it off with cold water

Best wishes.

According to most poskim, we are allowed to kasher plastic for questions regarding basar vchalav etc. , except for Pesach. Coupled with the fact that the container was not a ben yomo, so the absorbed taste is considered heteira balla, and the fact that it was only placed inside it from a different kli. See Chelkas Yackov Y:D 45-1, The Laws of Pesach ( R’ Eider zt”l) chap. 13 ftnt. 10 in the name of R; Henkin and R’ Moshe zt”l, Minchas Yitzchok 3-67, Shulchan Halevi 1 24 (30), Be’er Moshe 2-53, Shvus Yitzchok 6 pg. 53, would all permit koshering plastic in this instance. However M’bais Levi (Binyonei Yora Deah) pg. 38, and Chut Shani (Pesach) 10-11( 1) hold that plastic cannot be koshered.
