ANY PLACE THAT YOU DON'T KNOW THAT CHAMETZ WENT INTO. (Default is not - Mishna Berura)
ANY PLACE THAT YOU DON'T PLAN ON ACCESSING ON PESACH. (Mishna Pesachim)
ANY FOOD THAT IS NOT EDIBLE TO A DOG. (Shulchan Aruch)
KASHERING THE KITCHEN
TASTE IS TRANSFERRED TO FOOD THROUGH HEAT.
THIS TASTE IS IMPOTENT AFTER 24 HOURS.
WE ARE STRICT TO ASSUME THAT UTENSILS SHOULDN'T BE USED EVEN AFTER 24 HOURS.
WHAT CAN'T YOU KASHER
China, pottery, earthenware, cement, concrete, and enameled pots may not be kashered for Pesach.
The Ashkenazic custom is to not kasher glass or crystal, with the exception of glass stovetops.
There is a difference of opinion as to whether plastic and other synthetic materials are included.
Fridge / Freezer
Make sure to clean the rubber
Some have the custom of covering shelves (leave air space for circulation)
Clean, don't use for 24 hours. Poor boiling water over every part. (BE CAREFUL!)
What can be kashered? Check the list.
RRB recommends: Cover everything.
Self clean is awesome. No need to wait 24 hours. (Works thru Libbun - incineration.)
If not: Clean well, wait 24 hours, heat to the highest temperature for 1 hour.
Hard to Kasher
Put a sterno in the drawer
Make sure it is cleaned well
Make sure it is cleaned well before
Gas: Clean well, Cover with foil and Self Clean the spiders
