Does you need to tovel the glass plate from a microwave in a mikvah, and do you need a Bracha?


The Star-K says tovel WITHOUT a beracha.



As always, for a matter of practical halacha, CYLOR. But AFAIK something that doesn't touch food does not require t'vila.

    It's hard to say it never touches food. I know many who use microwave for e.g. a potato, in which case it does touch... – yydl Feb 20 '11 at 2:30

Since it is made out of glass and many times the actual food will directly touch the plate as yydl indicated, You should tovel with a b’racha. (S.A. Y.D. 120:1)
