Kashering Sinks For Pesah

Kashering Sinks For Pesah
Day: Thursday

Parshat: Aharei Mot

Eating utensils like cups or plates that are normally used for food or drink that is not hot do not need any special kashering beyond cleaning them well. This holds true even if they are occasionally used for hot hametz since when it comes to these kinds of vessels we can follow the main usage. However, if they have been used for hot hametz within the past 24 hours they need to kashered following the same methods as any other hametz pot and pans. Refrigerators and freezers do not need to be kashered, they may be used on Pesah after being cleaned well. Soda Stream machines also do not need anything more than to be cleaned well. Sinks (even porcelain) may be kashered by pouring boiling water into them. If possible one should pour hot water into the sink three times. Marble countertops can also be kashered by pouring boiling water over them. They do not need to be covered for Pesah.
