Does A Pot That Was Cooked In On Shabbat Need To Be Kashered?

Does A Pot That Was Cooked In On Shabbat Need To Be Kashered?

If one cooked after ben hashemashot on Shabbat but before Rabenu Tam's tzet hakochavim time it is considered as if he cooked on Shabbat an all the halachot previously discussed apply. However, if that is the only food he has for Shabbat he may be lenient and eat it. One might think that these halachot are irrelevant in our Torah observant circles. The truth is that they are very relevant, as in the following scenario; it may happen that someone will put food on the plata just after Shabbat has started. It is important to know the halachot in these situations so as not to waste food that the Halacha may permit.
A pot that is used to cook food on Shabbat does not need to be kashered. However it is good to kasher it before the one who cooked uses it again. The pot may not be used on Shabbat by the one who cooks in it. Others may use it right away on Shabbat.
