Microwave Ovens & Kashrut
Microwave ovens raise a number of problems at home and in the work place: Can a microwave oven be used for both meat and milk? Can kosher food be heated in a non-kosher microwave oven in the work place? Can we permit food heated by a non-Jew in a microwave oven. Can a microwave oven be kashered for use on Passover? Join Rabbi Dovid Fink and survey the opinions of the great contemporary poskim on these and related issues.
This course is dedicated in the memory of Yehezkel and Sarah Lemel z”l by their loving family. יחזקאל בן אשר למל ושאשא יוכבד ז”ל ושרה מניה פייגע בת יום טוב וטשארנה רבקה ז”ל

Microwave Ovens & Kashrut: Lesson 1
What is the halachic status of microwave cooking with respect to milk and meat? What about using a non-kosher microwave oven for kosher food? Can a microwave oven be kashered? If a non-Jew microwaves food, does that food fall under the category of bishul akum (non-Jewish cooking)?
