For anyone who keeps kosher, figuring out which dishes and utensils to use with which category of food can be difficult. Typically, though, people tend to use red for meat and fowl, blue for dairy, and green or white for "parve" (things that are neither meat nor dairy, including fish, eggs, grains, vegetables, and fruits). I've found lots of appropriately colored plates, utensils, and even cookware by searching online (such as at cookware.com and alljudaica.com).
I didn't know that Kosher foods are also served/stored on/in Kosher coordinated dishes/containers! Thanks for the information!
Yep. It helps us keep things separated. We also wash things in separate sinks or dish-pans, with separate cloths or sponges, cook the categories in separate vessels and with separate utensils (and in separate ovens and/or crock pots), serve them on separate dishes and with separate utensils... It's complicated. But it can be made a lot more simple by color-coordinating everything, and/or by using oven-safe, dishwasher-safe stickers to identify things. To tell the truth it's very difficult to learn, but becomes easy to do once you're used to it, sort of like long division or tying your shoes. Or using a computer, making your own cleaning solutions, driving, speaking and using language, or any of the other things most of us now take for granted. :)
