    Host: Should I use separate cooking utensils and cookware for allergy free dishes?

    Bob Gravani: Well for severely food allergic consumers segregating equipment is very very important. In people's homes, certainly they probably don't even want the offending food allergen present in their homes because just the presence might accidentally cause an allergic reaction to occur. So keeping everything separate and segregated is very important, but in a home situation, I would recommend that consumers not even have that particular offending food allergen present in their pantries or their kitchens just to avoid any problems with other family members inadvertently cross contacting equipment, utensils, counter space, etcetera.
