Mix mayonaise and chrein on Shabbos?


Is one allowed to mix mayonaise and chrein on Shabbos?
Thank you!




Regarding mixing mayonnaise with prepared horseradish, some Poskim say that it is permitted to mix without[1] any shinui, since it is similar to adding more liquid to the horseradish. Other Poskim[2] say that it should be mixed with a shinui. It should be noted that if a large amount is added, so that the pieces[3] of horseradish are not bound to each other, but “floating” in the mayonnaise, it is not losh  and may be mixed without any shinui.



[1] ס’ השבת במטבח עמ’ 163, ובס’ ל”ט מלאכות עמ’ 538.

[2] ראיתי בס”ס כללים בהל’ שבת – לש בשם הרב אלישיב זצ”ל, וכן לפי רש”ז זצ”ל.

[3] שמעתי מכמה פוסקים, ולכאורה הוא פשוט כיון שאין כאן שום גיבול והוא דומה למים עכורים שאין שם גיבול. וע’ ג”כ ארחות שבת פ”ו סע’ ל”ט.
