|Halacha - glass|
|Submitted by anonymous Answered by Rav Peretz Moncharsh|
According to the Mechaber and the custom of Sefardim glass plates may be used both for meat and dairy provided they are carefully cleaned in between. However the Rema holds the opposite extreme, that glass utensils cannot be kashered and remain forever in their original status. Ashkenazi Jews follow the opinion of the Rema and do not use glass for hot meat and dairy except under extenuating circumstances.
