Bread in Meat and Dairy Oven


Rabbi David Sperling

Cheshvan 1, 5779
Hello, I had some parve bread (store-bought, frozen) that I planned on eating with a meat-equipment meal. I started to heat it up in the meat oven, but then decided not to use it and put it in the fridge. A few days later, I forgot about that bread has been in the meat oven and used it to make grilled cheese sandwiches in the dairy oven. Since I don’t really remember the details of when the bread was in the meat oven, I am not sure if the oven was used for meat within 24 hours of the bread (it was definitely used for parve food around that time). I do remember that the bread did not have a chance to fully defrost and was still somewhat cold when I changed my mind about using it with the meat meal-equipment meal and put it away. Could you please let me know what to do about the dairy oven? Thank you!
Shalom, Thank you for your question. Because of the many doubts in this situation – did the bread get hot in the meat oven, and whether the oven had been used for meat within the previous 24 hours – the halacha is that your dairy oven is kosher. (The sandwich is also kosher and may be eaten – if that is still a question). Blessings.
