From the Rav’s Desk: Koshering wood

  1. Question: [Monday, 14th Teves 5781]

Can one Kasher a wood item, such as a wood cutting board or wood spoon?



Wood items are Kosherable if they require mere Hagalah [i.e. used wood dairy spoon to mix meat pot], so long as they do not contain cracks in which food can get stuck in and cannot be removed. Thus, one can Kosher a smooth wooden cutting board or wooden spoon that does not contain cracks and is cleaned prior to Koshering.
