Ceramic and Earthenware Dishes on Pesah

Ceramic and Earthenware Dishes on Pesah
Day: Friday
Date: April 8, 2016
Parshat: Tazriah, HaChodesh
Yalkut Yosef: O"H: 451

Ceramic and pottery dishes that have been used for hot hametz during the year can never be kashered for use on Pesah. The Torah teaches us that any taste that is absorbed into the walls of earthenware utensils never comes out. Therefore such vessels should be put away for Pesah and not used. If however the vessel was used for cold hametz and that hametz remained inside of it for 24 hours or more, the vessels can be kashered. The procedure is as follows: one must pour cold water into the vessel and leave it for 24 hours. After 24 hours the water should be spilled out and this process should be repeated two more times. Once this has been done three times the vessel has been kashered.
