Types of Vessels Requiring Immersion: 

A vessel made of metal or glass with which one eats, drinks, cooks, roasts, fries, or heats up water for drinking requires immersion with a blessing. Examples of vessels requiring immersion with a blessing include: Correlle dishes, silverware, pots and pans, glazed china, kettle, and those parts of a mixer or blender which come into direct contact with food.


When immersing several items at the same time, only one blessing is said.

AL TEVILAT KELI (or for more than one vessel say:) KAILIM. 

Blessed are You, L-rd our G‑d, King of the Universe, Who has sanctified us with His command­ments, and commanded us concerning the immersion of a vessel (vessels).
