    What about bishul akum with kosher food
    Don’t we have to worry if the housekeeper is left alone in the house ans there is no fire
    That she can cook something for herself (or fry or bake)
    With kosher ingredients,with your pots and pans
    Then she cleans them without your knowledge
    And than you are cooking in pots and pans,of bishul akum

    Interesting. How about...

    How about leaving meat/chicken to defrost before it is prepared as a dish?

    Very clear and precise, the behind the scenes as well as the bottom line. I’d love to see more of such articles.
    Thank you Rabbi Raskin!

    I am not a Rav but I believe that regarding BY at least according to us, any involvement in the food By a Jew is sufficient. so we would not need to worry about Mixed Taste Of Non BY.

    How many people will be foolish enough to leave a goy alone in their home because of this post? There are so many variables. So what if not everything is exactly as described here? If for instance the goy knows you went till pick up your child from school and won’t be back for at least half an hour? You have not mevushal wine in the kitchen?
    Please no one use this article as a heter. You must ask a rav your own particular shaylah.

    Why should we distrust a non-Jew, even someone we trust in every other circumstance?

    It’s not a matter of trust. It’s a matter of halacha.
    You shouldn’t be “trusting” them in every other circumstance either. Like leaving your child with a non-Jewish nanny who might innocently take your child places where a Jew shouldn’t be. Or give a crying, hungry child in the park some of her own food to calm him. Please speak to a Rav.
