|We are in the process of becoming Kosher. I have one large stainless steel sink, and one dishwasher. I will designate the dishwasher as meat. So I will have to wash the dairy dishes in the sink. How do I do this? Also what about the pareve dishes and utensils? Can they go in the dishwasher or does that turn them into meat dishes. I am just learning about all of the laws so my questions may seem elementary, but I really need all of the help that I can get. Thanks.|
We're happy to help.
As far as the dishwasher goes, you should designate it for meat only. If by chance a different type of utensil goes in there, give us a call and we'll help you sort it out.
For the sink, I recently wrote up a FAQ for our website, but it hasn't been posted yet, here it is:
Q I was wondering if there is something you can explain regarding the kashrus issues of having only one kitchen sink?
A. If there is only one sink, we suggest purchasing plastic dish pans, one to be used for milk dishes and one for meat dishes. Placing a rack in the sink, one for dairy and one for meat, under the dishpan, would be recommended.
Keep us posted on your progress!
