Rabbi Leibel Katz in Ohel Areyh siman 216 writes that one could fulfill eating hot food on shabbas by drinking a tea or coffee but one should certainly have a hot item since it is not just for oneg shabbas but also to remove the suspicion of being an apikoris(and chilul shabbas see Mishna Brurah).
If the utensils were used within 24 hours, then b'dieved even mdrabonon the food is כשר. (Remember this is only b'dieved where if it was an accident or a bshat hatchak). Therefore since it's כשר you can make a berachah.
If the food is 1/3 cooked "ochel Ben deruso" then it's not a problem. Because we are not makpid on the rabbinic decree of "ein bishul achar bishul" which literally means "there's no further cooking after the food is already cooked." And this whole concept only applied to shabbat because the rabbis feared that onlookers would see someone put something in the ...
The Shulchan Aruch writes (196:1): אכל דבר איסור אף על פי שאינו אסור אלא מדרבנן אין מזמנין עליו ואין מברכין עליו לא בתחלה ולא בסוף׃ If one ate something prohibited, even though it's only prohibited Rabinically, we do not form a zimum on it, and we do not say a beracha before or after eating it. The key thing to note is that it is not necessarily a ...
The tray would require libun gamur because the heating element appears to be directly under the tray cooking the pizza. Instructions for libun gamur may be found here (Purim-style source) I don't think the upper heating element requires anything at all because it does not have any contact with the food.
Short answer: It is absolutely OK to not have cholent. Some authorities require one to have some hot food. Most authorities require that you not refuse or avoid hot food systematically. That said, it is a widespread issue that there are those who "know" it is required to have cholent, and will think you strange (or worse) if you don't. Some may even ...
In this article on koshering utensils, it seem that your rotating pizza oven most nearly approximates a broiler (at least from on top). Certainly the steam etc. from the cooking pizza must reach the upper heater. Therefore I would think that the koshering method described there would be appropriate i.e. The Broiler As mentioned previously, the ...
Yes. And no. Cholent is said to have evolved of a tradition to have hot food on Shabbath. The basis of this tradition seems to be a rabbinic insistence, possibly even a decree, that eating hot food shows that a person is not a karaite, and instead accepts the validity and authority of Torah SheBe'Al Peh. The fear that someone rejected TShB"P was ...
From the Rama 257:8 ומצוה להטמין לשבת כדי שיאכל חמין בשבת, כי זהו מכבוד ועונג שבת. וכל מי שאינו מאמין בדברי החכמים ואוסר אכילת חמין בשבת, חיישינן שמא אפיקורוס הוא (הר"ן פרק במה טומנין וכל בו): Loose translation: it is a Mitzvah to have heated food on shabbas because this a honor and pleasure on shabbas,and anyone who does not believe ...
