The Rama discusses a similar case of using glass for both meat and dairy. Even though bliyot are not possible, as they do not go into the glass, nevertheless the minhag is to be machmir because it will be confusing. Using the same utensils should be even more chamur than glass where there is no possibility of bliyot.
Dr. Haym Soloveitchik notes this anomaly (that really there's no need to have separate dishware for cold foods) in the beginning of his famous essay, Rupture and Reconstruction (second paragraph): "The simple fact is that the traditional Jewish kitchen, transmitted from mother to daughter over generations, has been immeasurably and unrecognizably amplified ...
The prohibition of eating "Non Kosher cheese" is called "Gevinas Akum". This has nothing to do with Kashrus. Even if all the ingredients are Kosher 100%, one may not eat cheese made by a non Jew due to Gevinas Akum. See Rabbi Jachter for a complete explanation.
I asked them and received the following reply from Rabbi Moshe D Gutnick (with permission to post here): In NZ all ethanol is produced from whey and is Dairy. Therefore all ethanol based alcoholic beverages such as Vodka produced in NZ must be considered dairy. Beer was also included in that as a precaution. However it is now quite clear that none of the ...
Human breastmilk is 100% kosher once it has left the woman's body (Shulchan Aruch YD 81:7). Furthermore, it is pareve, but shouldn't be cooked with meat to avoid issues of Marat Ayin (ibid. 87:4).
There's an entire chapter of Shulchan Aruch (Yore Dea 112) — sixteen subsections plus all the commentaries and later works — devoted to this, so obviously answers here, including this one, can't do the topic justice. But the Star-K and the OU summarize the main points, qq.v., and I'll briefly summarize the summaries: It's forbidden unless a Jew ...
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.
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.
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 ...
Your question seems to concern balancing considerations of mar'is ayin and shalom bayis (family harmony). One source you might consider is the ruling of R' Moshe Feinstein (Igros Moshe OC 2:40) regarding entering a non-kosher restaurant: And therefore, there is even reason to prohibit entering to eat items that are known to definitely be kosher (e.g. ...
