Cooked fish with meat-Law of Pot

If one cooked meat and fish in the same vessel [and there was not 60x] does the vessel need to be Kashered?[1]

Some Poskim[2] rule that the pot must be Kashered through Hagalah.[3] Other Poskim[4] however rule that the vessel is not required to be Kashered and must rather simply wait 24 hours prior to use.[5] Practically one may use the vessel after 24 hours have passed since the forbidden use.[6]


[1] See Darkei Teshuvah 116/28; Kaf Hachaim 116/13

[2] Tiferes Lemoshe in name of his grandfather Yaakov, brought in Pischeiy Teshuvah 116/3; Birkeiy Yosef 116 in Shiyurei Bracha 7; Shemiras Hanefesh 12

[3] The reason: As the taste absorbed in the pot is forbidden to be eaten [due to Sakana] just as is any other non-Kosher food, and it hence needs to be Kashered.

[4] Divrei Malkiel 2/53; Kaf Hachayim 116/13

[5] The reason: As the taste of meat and fish does not prohibit meat and fish due to Sakana, as expaliend in Issur Viheter 23/7 and Taz 116/2, hence the allowance to cook fish in a Ben Yomo meat pot. [Kaf Hachaim ibid; Divrei Malkiel ibid]
