Disposable aluminum pans- Re: Tevilah & oils

The OU's position is that Aluminum Disposable pans do not need tevilla even if reused. Get your pans in NPGS per "OU", No tevilah.

NOTE: The Minchas Yitzchok's position is if reused requires Tevilah. See also Igres Moshe. (also no kitnious)

Kosher West has a brand that you don't have to toivel (& no kitnios)even according to the Minchas Yitzchok & Igres Moshe "It's your choice".

The OU does not certify pans for Pesach but recognizes that they may be used without special certification so long as the pans are dry. we are not concerned that the pans might have been stamped out using kitniyos oils. (I believe the most common oil is actually peanut oil (see teshuvas Igeros Moshe).

Because the pans are dry and the issue is at most an aino ben yomo bliya.
