Glass does not absorb anything that has been cooked or stored inside of it and therefore glass may be used on Pesah without being kashered. Even if the hametz was stored inside of the glass for long periods of time, such as beer in beer bottles, the bottles do not need to be kashered. The only thing necessary is to wash them well a few times. Ashkenazim are strict in this regard and treat glass the same as ceramic. (See DSH from April 8, 2016 for the laws of kashering ceramic). There are some Sephardim who with regards to Pesah are also strict about using glass. They should consult with their Rabbi if they would like to change their custom and follow Maran. Glass baking dishes also have no need to be kashered just like any other glass dishes. Ashkenazim may kasher glass baking dishes by doing hag'ala on them three times. After the baking dishes are taken out of the hot water, they should not be put into cold water as is generally done as part of hag'ala since doing so will cause the baking dishes to shatter.
