Dear Kosher Spirit,

I purchased disposable foil pans. If I intend to reuse them, do they require tevilas keilim?

The OK Responds:

Disposable utensils, pans, etc. do not require tevilas keilim because they are not designed for long term use, even if the consumer chooses to use it more than once. Of course, there will be differing opinions. Please ask your local Orthodox rav for your personal p’sak. For details, please see the Guide to Tevilas Keilim at
