Kashrut: Dairy/Meat: Pot Spatters and Pareve

Situation
  • Food of one gender spatters onto the outside of a pareve utensil. 
  • Either the food and/or the utensil are hot.
Note If the pot is not hot, a small spatter will not be hot.  If the spatter is large (more than one drop), the spatter may be hot. Ask a rabbi what to do.
Status The utensil assumes the spatter's gender UNLESS the spatter was less than 1/60th of the volume of the metal in the pareve utensil (not 1/60th of the volume the container usually holds). Consult a rabbi.
