4. Preparing the Kitchen


Your kitchen is where you prepare chametz food all year round. So it's obviously the most difficult part of the house to make "kosher for Passover." It's also the most important part, since that's where you'll be preparing your kosher for Passover food.

Give the kitchen an extra careful cleaning. Line the cabinets and food storage units with cardboard, silver foil, or paper. Cover all countertops and tables.

It is preferable to have separate sets of pots, dishes, cutlery, etc., designated for Passover use only. Many also have special range tops, toaster ovens, microwaves, etc., designated for Passover use. If this is not possible, cooking utensils, cutlery and certain types of dishes can be "koshered" by immersing in boiling water. Ovens and cooking ranges can be koshered by heating. See the Readings and Resources below for the appropriate procedure for each item.
