I was told by my father that we follow the minhag not to kasher vessels for paisach but to buy new ones

I asked a Rav, the Rav said there is no such minhag, no reason to avoid kashering even when easy

But now I found this video

who is correct?

Sources on subject greatly appreciated

  • many prefer not to kasher thing for pesach as chametz is never batel. There is always a small chance that not 100% is removed. Unlike other areas of kashrus which mainly deals with the taste of the item when it comes to chametz it doesn't matter if the taste isn't present b/c the prohibition is on the chametz itself.

  • Is it possible to have a source that there is no such minhag?

    @dude chametz is batel. It just cannot be batel on pesach itself, but before pesach chametz can be batel. Apr 6, 2016 at 17:31

    The Chasam sofer did not keep this minhag. See Shu”t Y.D.110. He uses the fact that we can kasher things for pesach as a way around the minhag not to kasher from dairy to meat. I might add that following this chasam sofer halacha limsa is a very common practice these days. Apr 6, 2016 at 17:37

You'll find it in the Magen Avraham 451, 6.
