In the Kitchen: Using a Grater


graterWhen using a parve grater, it is important to remember to not cut or peel the food that will be grated with a meat or dairy knife or peeler prior to grating, as that will defeat the purpose of using the parve grater in the first place. (Based on Shulchan Aruch Yoreh Deah Siman 96:1)

A potato masher which is used to mash hot potatoes (which due to their denseness are considered a “Davar Gush” and have a Halachic status of a Kli Rishon) together with butter, should not be used to mash potatoes that will be used at a meat meal, especially if the two are within 24 hours of each other.
