Returning Hot Soup or Cholent to Heat Source

To serve hot soup, cholent, etc., and then return the food to the hotplate, blech, or other covered heat source:
  • You may pick up the pot or utensil containing the food from the hotplate, blech, or other covered heat source, but you must not put it down, even to partially rest on a table or other surface;
  • You must intend to return the utensil and food to the hotplate, blech, or other covered heat source; and
  • You may not remove/serve food from the utensil while it is still on the hotplate, blech, or other covered heat source.
