comment Sources for allowing/forbidding lifting and replacing the lid of a pot on a Blech or of a Crock-pot on Shabbos
what happened to the original part about Rabbi Spitz's article? It is entirely correct. After reading it through - I think that Bruce made a mistake. The sources r spitz quoted were not referring to simply taking the cover off; but rather later putting it back on! The replacing it speeds up the cooking and would be considered maygis. What does that have to do with adding water? There is a way to do it - one must follow the chazara procedures - take the pot off the fire - while still in the hand etc. then pour in the water, replace the cover and put it back on the blech. no stira whatsoever!

comment Women and Mayim Acharonim
a good source for this is the yaavetz in mor uketzia 181 -who cites that its possible that since women are generally more hygenic they dont need to wash. however he holds otherwise they share the same halacha as men. - see this great article - footnote link: ohr.edu/5285#_edn17

comment What food product was the Birkei Yosef discussing when he said Bishul Akum didn't apply?
whooops! i'm sorry that was the rivevos efraim referring to bishul akum with microwaves. the one on rav moshe's factory hetter is Rivevos Efraim (vol. 5, 596). sorry!
