Halacha - Cooking on Shabbos
Submitted by anonymous  Answered by Rav Peretz Moncharsh
Question: Let us say that before candle-lighting on Friday afternoon, a large pot of mixed foods (meat, gravy, etc...) is sitting on top of a blech on top of a cooktop (with the burner on), with the lid of the pot inverted, so that the handle of the pot is facing into the pot. Therefore the covering of this larger pot is for all intents and purposes considered flat. Is it considered cooking (on Shabbos) if someone were to place a smaller pot (of soup) on top of this large pot after candle-lighting?
Answer: If it is hot enough to warm the small pot to the temperature of Yad Soledes Bo, around 110F/45C, it is forbidden to place a cold liquid and is considered cooking.
