During this challenging time, it is not always possible to Toivel Keilim, due to the restrictions that are currently in effect. Many people are making Pesach for the first time and are purchasing new Keilim, making it even more challenging.
With this in mind, the MK, the vaad hakashrus in Canada, has set up a system of Mechiras Keilim (selling the utensils, pots, pans, cooking and other appliances, etc.), similar to the sale of Chametz, by selling it to a gentile. This works with the intention that it is only for a short period of time, 30 days. During this time, one may use these items, which are borrowed from the Non-Jew. However, after 30 days, these are then returned to the original ownership of the person that purchased them, and must then be toiveled.
In order to make it simpler, complete the form HERE. Each day at 6pm, up until and including Monday, April 6th, all of the forms that the MK receives, and all of the included on those forms, will be sold. At 6:30 on the day your form was submitted, you are allowed to use these items.
Please ensure that you do not discard any of the items. Disposable aluminum pans may be included in the sale for those who wish.
