Mitzvah #87 - Taking kitchen utensils as collateral

One may not take as collateral any items that are used to prepare food.

This applies whether one takes the collateral at the time of the debt or afterwards, and even if Bet Din is taking the collateral.

Applies to everybody, everywhere, always

Verse: "Do not take the nether nor the upper millstone as collateral" (Devarim 24:6)
