If we have pots that are being used for Meat and now want to use them for Dairy permanently, is there a way that would be permissible?
As long as you have in mind to permanently keep them in that status, is not a problem. The issue is flip-flopping back and forth which is a concern. Therefore just make sure that if you decide to make a switch that is with the intention to stay permanent.
Do we need to do anything else to pots, utensils, etc. to change from meat to dairy (permanently of course)— we eat mostly dairy and I would like to switch some of my meat utensils for dairy. TIA
