What is the status of this pot?


I washed a Fleishig pot that was used to cook mashed potatoes with a Milchig sponge that was used that day for Milchigs. The pot is metal and the cover is metal and glass. What is the status of the pot, and if it has to be Kashered, how do I Kasher the cover?



The pot may be used.



The water was probably not hot enough, Yad Soledes Bo, to cause transfer of taste. Even if hot water was used, since the sponge was absorbed with soap, the taste it transfers is considered a defective taste and doesn’t affect the pot.

If both of these reasons don’t apply, the pot should be Kashered by pouring boiling water over it. The cover may be Kashered the same way.
