The Kof-K list of tevila instructions says that, according to the OU, Star-K and CRC, a corkscrew does not require tevilah because it does not touch the food. The Star-K confirms. And so does R Forst on behalf of OU. Not clear why it would need to be kashered. The prohibition is on drinking non-kosher wine. If (1) the corkscrew is clean and (2) it was cold ...

As with many questions of this type, the answer is "it is a machlokes" You would have to consult your specific Rav. The OU actually goes into some details on this. What’s the Truth about . . . the Sale of Chametz on Pesach? The utensils themselves present more of a challenge. The question of what to do with chametzdik, non-kasherable dishes is ...

This is a machloket in Chulin 31a. נדה שנאנסה וטבלה אמר רב יהודה אמר רב טהורה לביתה ואסורה לאכול בתרומה ור' יוחנן אמר אף לביתה לא טהרה A nidah who did not intend to tovel (will be explained later): Rav Yehudah said in the name of Rav that she is pure for "her house" (i.e. to be with her husband), but still isn't able to eat trumah.

Chaf-K says that the bracha applies to all kailim that the person had in mind when he siad the bracha. One who is being tovel more than one utensil should be careful not to talk between the first utensil and the second. 35 One who is toveling keilim and new keilim are brought to be toveled which he did not intend to tovel at the time he recited ...

The lubovitcher rebbe discussed this and made a chiddush that tevilah is only required where the non jew had access to the utensils. He also suggested that because of today's manufacturing processes this may not be fufilled and possibly today's utensils do not require tevillah hence some chabad do not make a brachah because of a safek brachah. Likutei ...

Qiẓur Shulḥan 'Arukh - Yalqut Yosef (Yoreh De'ah 120:24) states (my translation): כלים של חמץ שנכללו בשטר המכירה של מכירת החמץ, ראוי להחמיר הטבילם בלי ברכה For Ḥameẓ utensils included in one's Sale of Ḥameẓ contract, it is proper to be stringent and to immerse them [once they return to one's possession] without a blessing.

The response of mbloch is perfect. I just want to quote 2 statements taken out from Gemara Avoda Zara 75B (I elided everything not directly concerned with the question) ‏1. כלי סעודה אמורין בפרשה‏[1]‏ ‏ ‏ 2. דברים שנשתמש בהן ע''י צונן כגון כוסות וקתוניות וצלוחיות מדיחן ומטבילן והם טהורין‏[2]‏ [1] utensils connected with a ...

Rama writes (YD 201:9): ומותר לטבול כלים בסל או בשק דכיון דאינו מחזיק מים עדיף טפי מניקב כשפופרת הנאד It is permitted to dip vessels in a basket or bag for since [the basket or bag] cannot hold water, they are more preferable than a [large enough hole to combine the water in the basket or bag with the Mikva water]. See too Bavli Chagiga 21b-22a. ...

Rav Yitzchak Abadi(Ohr Yitzchak chelek 2 YD 17:12) quotes the ShuLchan Aruch YD 201:30 that collected water is pasul for mikvah but not snow... and even if one uses a whole mikvah full of snow it is good.Even though the Rama writes we should be machmir and wait until it melts this is talking in the case of a niddah but one would not have to be stringent by ...
