(Based in part on this question.)

If I purchase a new dish that would require immersion, and I use the dish FOR a gift (I bring brownies on the dish to my Jewish neighbor), and I do not intend to collect the dish after the brownies are gone:

  1. Am I obligated to immerse the dish;
  2. If I immerse the dish, is that sufficient for the recipient; and
  3. If I don't immerse the dish, may the recipient use the dish for its function of holding/serving the brownies, or must they be transferred to another dish?
