Say I have a pot that I used for beef soup. Then an hour later I forgot I used the pot for meat and I decide to make soup with cheese. I throw the cheese in it and put it on the fire. About 5 seconds later I remember I used it for meat. What is the Halacha, does the pot need to be kashered, and what is the Halacha regarding the cheese.

I think the correct answer is CYLOR. – Seth J Mar 23 '14 at 20:47
what temperature did the pot become? could be only the pot needs to be kashered. i think we assume the blia is inside the walls of the pot uniformly so the part in contact with fire could have heated enough. – ray Apr 29 '14 at 13:09

it is the temperature of Yad Soledes

see shulchan aruch yora daia 92.7,8 95.1 and 105.2
