Pots, pans, and other utensils that are used with hametz during the year need to be kashered so they can be used on Pesah as well. The method of kashering an item is dependent on the way the item is generally used. A pot that is normally used for items which contain liquid, needs "hag'ala," and a utensil normally used for food that does not have sauce or gravy requires "libun." An item that is normally used with liquid would require hag'ala even if it is used occasionally for items without liquid, and vice versa. However if the utensil is normally used for food that is okay for Pesah and only rarely used for hametz, in such a case we do not follow the main usage and the utensil would in fact need to be kashered. Therefore, a water urn that is occasionally used on Shabbat to heat food should not be used on Pesah if the food heated is hametz.
