Halacha - kashering of used 'china' dishes
Submitted by Shmuel of Tzfat  Answered by Rav Peretz Moncharsh

While china/porcelain is technically pottery/cheres which can not usually be kashered, in the case of plates most Poskim are lenient. Since the dishes are never placed directly on the heat source they are generally a kli shlishi, two steps removed from the source of heat, and therefore according to Halacha it is questionable if they have absorbed non-Kosher flavor at all. So the best thing to do is to immerse them in boiling water 3 times with all the Halachos of hagola, preferably changing the water and rinsing the dishes in between each time. Afterwards they may be considered Kosher for future use.
