# 3103 Pesach Dishes for Shabbos Use?

Q. I heard that during every regular Shabbat the utensils set aside for Pesach use are muktza.
If one bought new utensils for Pesach and decides to use the old ones on Shabbat a week before Pesach, for chametz purposes, can he use them then since at the beginning of Shabbat they were already muktza?
A. Poskim disagree if Pesach utensils are muktza on a regular Shabbos; RS”Z Auerbach zt’l (Minchas Shlomo 2: 31: 2) is lenient. However, Shevus Yitzchok (Muktza 1: p. 10) quotes Horav Eliashiv zt’l to be stringent and he considers them to be muktza machmas chisaron kis. (a kind of muktza usually intended for items that are expensive or fragile, and because of the possible loss, one abstains from using them)
Horav Shlomo Miller’s Shlit’a opinion is that when needed for use during Shabbos they could be used.
