I don't know the answer, but I listened to a shiur a while back where the Rov said that when he hears the words "I cut an onion with a fleishig/milchig knife" he always stops and says, "That was your first mistake." (Not trying to pin any blame.) He said we should really get in the habit of only using pareve equipment to cut, especially charif.

I'm curious if he presented that as halacha or advice.

Did you get a ruling on this? I'm very curious.

I'm a total space cadet sometimes, and this is why my kitchen is super crowded. I have it divided right down the middle, with duplicates of everything, and separate drawers for everything.

I literally have to make my kitchen idiot-proof, to accommodate my ADD tendencies.

He definitely did not present it as halacha, but something everyone should get into the practice of doing.

DH (who also cooks) agrees that if we always took out a pareve knife to cut vegetables we'd have more "Rabbi, I cut a hot meat (or dairy) thing with the pareve knife" questions than we've had "I cut an onion with the wrong knife" ones.

Looks like I'm ok because I never used the knife in hot meat. Pretty easy to trace because my cooking methods are so elementary that I don't use knives while cooking, only for prep and serving/eating.

Had my knife been genuinely fleishig then I would have had a problem.

Re the raw onion, yes I was just wondering whether the whole thing was fleishig or what. Frankly I have little use for a fleishig onion right now. I sliced off the top with a properly parve knife and used the rest of it for a brand new omelette today.

A great example of why we need to ask shailos. A lot of times the Rabbi will ask for more details that will make a big difference.

Interesting. We have a fleishig set of knives, but our pareve get much more use. We have just a couple milchig, which rarely get used. The difference is you don't have to ask a shailah with pareve, unless you're going to have it stay that way Wink

YES, I sent a message to my LOR. Two of them actually. But no reply yet and I think this is a standard enough type of situation that should be covered in basic halacha, except I'm not very well-versed Sad

I accidentally used a fleishig knife to cut up half of an onion and fried it in a dairy frying pan. The knife and pan were both clean, and neither had been used for meat/dairy respectively for at least a few weeks.

Does anyone know what is the status of:
1. The fried onions
2. The frying pan
3. The remaining half a raw onion


You really need to wait for an answer from a rov on this...onions change the status of everything.,,,

Exact same scenario here. Were the actual fried onions okay as well?

My fleishig cutting knives also never get used with hot food. I would use a spatula or regular dinner knife to cut something like a meat loaf or a meat pie. I would never use a cutting knife because I would ruin the surface of the pan.

This. My pareve knives only last a few weeks and they I will cut something hot and none pareve with them and they are no longer pareve.
