Meat spoon and pareve food made on dairy equipment

Question:

Can I use a meat spoon to eat food made on dairy equipment?

 

Answer:

It is permitted to eat the food with a meat spoon even according to the Ashkenazi minhag.  The reason is because the taste of the dairy is only what was absorbed in the equipment, and then went into the food, and it is considered a very weak taste. Therefore although we don’t cook it in order to eat with dairy, since it was already cooked it may be used in a meaty bowl with meaty cutlery.

Best wishes
