Guidelines for Tevilat Keilim

Utensils Requiring Immersion

  • Utensils used for food and beverage preparation, serving, or storage must undergo ritual immersion before use if they are made of the following materials:
  • Metal, glass, aluminum, cast iron, chrome, pewter, Pyrex, stainless steel, tin.
  • Note: Plastic, nylon, and silicone tools do not require immersion. However, Chabad and other traditions choose to immerse them without reciting a blessing.

Utensils That Don’t Require Immersion

  • Wooden, earthenware, stone, and paper utensils (unless coated with metal or glass)
  • Utensils not in direct contact with food or beverages (e.g., bottle and can openers)
  • Disposable utensils for one-time use

Who Can Immerse Utensils

  • Any male or female over the age of Bar or Bat Mitzvah may perform the immersion.

How to Immerse a Utensil

  • Remove any substance hindering complete water contact (e.g., rust, glue, labels).
  • Recite the blessing.
  • Immerse the utensil, either by holding it loosely to ensure full contact with water, or by placing it in a perforated basket, immersing the basket, and shaking it.
