    Does it need a hechsher? (This is a real question.)

    Since it is used with food, you should get one with a hechsher. (PulsingFlower: if the question bothers you – just ignore it. no need to make a fool of yourself).

    @mutche Do your pots and pans have a hechsher? Does your cutlery have a hechsher? Do your plates and bowls and cups have hechsherim? Does your tablecloth have a hechsher? Does your stove have a hechsher? And your oven? Your kettle? What about the shopping bags that you use to carry your food home?

    I would think posting that question here will possibly get many yeses and many nos. That question should be for your rabbi not the opinionated people of YWN coffee room. Then again it kind of makes it interesting with all the responses to these types questions.

    Despite the ignorance of some responses, it is a fair and legitimate question.

    Yes it needs 2 hechsherim, one should be a national hechsher, and the other a chassidishe hechsher, but it must have the national hechsher before so the one giving the chasidishe hechsher knows its kosher. Plastic wrap is actually made of pure swine slime, in pasteurized, galvanized form heated to 400 degrees celsius, then cooled @ 0 degrees to lock in that versatile stretch of the material. It is called plastic wrap only because it was invented by 18th century mexican animal farmer, Juias Plastico.

    Despite the ignorance and cynicism of some responses, it is still a fair and legitimate question.

    Thank you, all, for your answers and legitimatizing.

    My mother always buys the plastic wrap, and I never looked if it had a hechsher. Then my friend bought a plastic wrap, without a hechsher, and we wanted to know if it needed one. We haven’t been using it for food, but I guess if we will then we’ll have to either dip it in the mikvah, stick it in the dirt, or use a flamethrower on it to kasher it.

    i thought there was something about if using with hot food needing a hechsher… Or is that for pesach?

    Like rebyidd said, most products we use with food gets rinsed first. With plastic wrap, I don’t know about you, but I use it out of the box to wrap my chicken. If it were to have a non-kosher coating it would go onto my food. I’ve never checked if it has a hechsher, but I would assume it’s okay without one as there would be no benefit to it having a coating (it’s supposed to stick).

    Plastic wrap for pesach does need some sort of approval so prob worth checking with your LOR

    @rebyidd23 toiveling something doesn’t make it kosher. you toivel your keilim because you bought it from a non-jew, but if your keilim weren’t kosher without a hechsher tevila wouldn’t help you
