  • If it was ever owned by a non-Jew (including during manufacture), it needs to be Toveled. Any Jew can do it between the last gentile owner in the supply chain and the Jewish owner at the end. – Seth J Dec 11 '12 at 16:20
  • @GershonGold presumably not - am I mistakenly thinking that the basis for tevilas keilim is non-Jewish ownership? – yoel Dec 11 '12 at 16:21
