|Halacha - Tevilas Keilim|
|Submitted by Shmuel D. Answered by Rav Peretz Moncharsh|
Excellent point, let me clarify. While R' Shlomo Zalman Auerbach zatzal mentions the sevara that any appliance that only works when plugged in is exempt from tevilas keilim, he did not rely on this alone l'chatchila. Therefore, regarding the urn, I replied the proper manner to do tevila or disassemble the appliance, but regarding the water cooler I brought various reasons to explain the minhag to be lenient b'dieved.
